Post Brees tagged
no surprise here but the Chargers just tagged Drew Brees. At QB, the average of the the top 5 at the position works out to $8.078M.

Brees can now talke to other teams who would have to compensate the Chargers with 2 first-round draft picks.

The Chargers have yet to decide if they will make Brees an "exclusive franchise" player, meaning he 1) can't talk to other teams but also 2) he would get a higher salary (which would be determined later in the spring).

Brees lead the 12-4 Chargers to the playoffs, going 262-400 in passing for 3,159 yards with 27 TDs and only 7 INTs. His QB rating was 104.8 in 2004.

I'd be looking for a deal w/Gates now that Brees has been franchised

As it turns out, it's non-exclusive. I think it's a good move. If he has another year like he did last year, they can look to sign him, if not they are only out one year on the contract.
