No player likes to be franchise tagged, and that includes quarterback Drew Brees, who now must decide whether to sign the franchise tag after the Saints placed it on him over the weekend, according to a local radio station.

A local radio station is reporting that Brees is “livid” that the Saints tagged him, and that will not sign the offer sheet.

The Saints and Brees have until July 15 to get a long-term deal done. If it isn't done, Brees has a couple of options: to sign the franchise tag deal or hold out until a deal is completed.
