METAIRIE, La. http:///...urquoise-orange.html . -- Drew Brees wont have a new contract in place before the New Orleans Saints kick off training camp, unless something changes drastically in the next few days.Even though other quarterbacks like Andrew Luck and Joe Flacco have gotten long-term extensions done this offseason, Brees said Saturday that he and the Saints havent even resumed negotiations in the last three months.Not sure why things have not progressed, said Brees, who is heading into the final year of his contract. They made an offer in March, we made an offer shortly thereafter. And besides the Josh Norman deal [when the Saints approached Brees about restructuring his contract to try to fit the star cornerback under their salary cap], there has been no talk about a contract since.Brees, 37, has suggested in the past that deadlines usually spur action in contract talks like these -- and there has been no real deadline in place so far, with the Saints content to let him play out the year with a whopping salary-cap figure of $30 million.When asked if the start of training camp might serve as an unofficial deadline, Brees reiterated that he wanted a deal done by the start of the season on Sept. 11.I would say the deadline is the start of the regular season, not training camp, he said.Brees said in May that he would not discuss his contract during the season. So if a deal isnt done by Week 1, it will have to wait until the end of the year, when he is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent.Brees, however, has insisted that he wont hold out or skip any practice time, and he fully participated in OTAs and minicamp. The Saints veterans report to training camp in West Virginia on Wednesday.Brees became the highest-paid quarterback in NFL history in 2012, when he signed a five-year, $100 million contract with the Saints. Since then, his $20 million average has been passed up 11 times -- including twice by Flacco.Flacco signed for a record $22.13 million per year in new money in March. Then Luck shattered that mark with $24.6 million per year in new money last month.The biggest sticking point in Brees contract will likely be the guaranteed money because of his age. If Brees wants more than $60 million in guarantees like Luck, Flacco and a handful of other quarterbacks, that would be guaranteeing him money into his age-39 season.Brees is still going strong, though. Although he has battled a series of nagging injuries over the past two years, Brees led the NFL in passing for the fourth time in five seasons last year with 4,870 yards in just 15 games played.http:///...t-electric-lime.html . Listen to the game live on TSN Radio 1050 at 7pm et. The Raptors traded Rudy Gay, Quincy Acy and Aaron Gray to the Sacramento Kings on Monday, in exchange for Greivis Vasquez, John Salmons, Patrick Patterson and Chuck Hayes. http:///...s-gray-sky-blue.html . Meanwhile, there were huge victories for Sunderland and West Ham over fellow relegation rivals, leaving the battle to avoid the drop up for grabs with the bottom 11 teams separated by just six points. Eden Hazard and Fernando Torres scored second-half goals to seal a fourth straight victory for Chelsea, which climbed above Arsenal and Manchester City in the standings ahead of their games on Monday and Sunday respectively. http:///...royal-blue-blue.html . Roman Josi had a goal and an assist to lead the Predators to a 4-1 victory over the Dallas Stars on Monday night.Bournemouth boss has Eddie Howe praised Benik Afobes contribution during their 2-1 win at Crystal Palace on Tuesday evening. The former Wolves striker has now scored three goals in three games after moving in January, with his goal at Selhurst Park sealing the win for the Cherries.Howes men came from behind to win for the first time this season after Scott Dann gave the Eagles the lead just before the break, but Marc Pugh got Bournemouth level not long after. Afobe netted from a saved Matt Ritchie shot in the second half to ensure all three points for the seaside club, and the manager praised his striker for his contribution throughout the game.Its a great lift for him and a great lift for us because you need the main striker in your side to give you goals and hes done that, Howe told Sky Sports after the win.I thought he linked the play very well, in the second half too. He always works hard and theres more to come. Hes only young so the future looks bright for him. Benik Afobe celebrates scoring Bournemouths winner against Crystal Palace It was a great goal from Marc as well. We needed it at a time when we hadnt really given them too many problems defensively.It was a great pass from Charlie Daniels and he took it really well, checked and finished it off. Weve seen him do it many times down the years and it was great to see that one go in. http:///...hoes-blue-green.html. .Crystal Palace certainly had the better chances throughout the game, but lacked the cutting edge to nab a point, with Bournemouth condemning the south Londoners to a fifth successive Premier League defeat. Marc Pugh celebrates scoring Bournemouths first goal of the game But the Cherries boss was under no illusions that a midweek trip to Selhurst Park would be a stern test for his side - who still arent completely clear of the relegation places.A Tuesday night here was always going to be a tough examination for us, Howe added.Crystal Palace played very well in the first half, they put a lot of balls in our box and their players were a constant threat which we didnt deal with very well.It took us until half time to get to grips with the game and then I thought we got some passing going and caused some problems in the second half. We were lucky to be in the game and stay in the game as we did in the first half. We came out as a different side after the break, we were a lot better and I felt we just about deserved it in the end.
