    <blockquote>By Tim Sullivan

    <font class="newstext">The Drew Brees decision is not merely about money. It is also about message. </font>

    <font class="newstext">Should the Chargers elect to let their incumbent quarterback walk, they will be making the cold-blooded percentage play. Committing big money to a post-operative passer can be imprudent, even irresponsible, and A.J. Smith is neither. </font>

    <font class="newstext"> The Chargers' general manager rules by reason. He is as sentimental as a stone. He will sign Brees within his own narrow parameters – a low base salary, a lot of incentives – or not at all. He's not about to guarantee top dollar to a quarterback with an uncertain shoulder. Not this one, anyway. </font></blockquote>
