Saints can’t buy a W.
Ryan Fitzpatrick can’t throw a pass to a guy with the same jersey.
So why wouldn’t the Jets trade for Brees?
Yes, the Saints just signed the Brees extension, and that could make things more complicated. But if you’re Brees, and you can still play at the level he’s been playing, wouldn’t you want to be on a time that has a chance at being competitive? He’s already got around 1100 yards this year, and completing 66% of his passes, with an 8:1 touchdown to pick ratio. Dude’s still hitting his prime still this late in the career. And for the organization, they need everything. So if you can gather up some picks, and start the rebuild you desperately need to start, why wouldn’t you pull the trigger?
For the Jets, if Fitzpatrick throws up another 5 or 6 picks next week, my trade gains some traction. They’ve got too good of a roster to be losing a game because their quarterback’s turning it over 6 times every Sunday. Forgot the financials of it, that’s for some accountant to figure out in their windowless office. In football terms, Drew Brees to the Jets makes too much sense, for both teams.
