(WVUE) -

With less than two weeks left until Drew Brees is set to become a free agent, Sean Payton reiterated the Saints' offseason stance that there is no reason to worry about the team's franchise quarterback finding another suitor.

"I don't think about it much because I know it is going to get done," Payton told ESPN. "I think Drew feels the same way and i think it will be done sooner than later and then it'll be one less item for everybody to talk about."

Brees is represented by agent Tom Condon, who negotiated all three of his client's contracts with Mickey Loomis, and Payton expects the two to be capable of agreeing to terms again in the near future "There's some patience and understanding. I don't think there's anything that has slowed it down. There's not one reason why it hasn't gotten done other than probably Mickey and Tom have done other things and I'm sure will meet here."

If Brees is not re-signed by the Saints on March 14th at 3 PM when free agency begins, other teams will be able to contact him.
