Ruling On Brees' Franchise Tag Expected Soon

Jun 30, 2012 6:06 PM EST

Drew Brees should know within a week if he'll collect nearly $4 million more than the NFL says he's due if he's franchise-tagged for a third time in 2013.

The Saints quarterback, who was represented by the NFL Players Association, had an hour-long grievance hearing before arbitrator Stephen Burbank on Wednesday in Philadelphia.

The hearing was to gain clarity on the interpretation of franchise-tag rules and the contract's total value, and Burbank said he'd rule on the issue within a week, according to a league source.
