Where the San Diego Chargers see only a damaged shoulder, Drew Brees sees much more.
Which is why Brees feels the Chargers are making a big mistake in essentially shoving him out the door by letting him test the free-agent market.
"I've always believed that this can be a successful organization, and I believe that the time is now," the quarterback said Friday afternoon, hours before free agency began. "That time is only now if I'm there, I can promise you that. I can't promise you what happens if I'm not there."
Odds are pretty good that Brees, 20-11 the last two seasons, won't be back for a sixth year with the Chargers. As disappointed as Brees is with the Chargers for failing to make him an acceptable contract offer, he expects to reach a quick deal with another team.
