Drew Brees is unlikely to have a new contract in place when the New Orleans Saints begin training camp.

The two sides haven't even negotiated over the last three months.

"Not sure why things have not progressed," Brees said. "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."

The quarterback is entering the final year of his contract.

"I would say the deadline is the start of the regular season, not training camp," he said.
