    Negotiations between the New Orleans Saints and holdout quarterback Drew Brees broke down late Thursday evening when the team’s franchise player demanded his newest contract include a clause that would ensure he would no longer be required to work on weekends.

    “I’ve been in this league ten years now, you know? I’ve paid my dues,†the six time pro bowler said to reporters as he exited Saints headquarters. “It’s not fair I get stuck working every single weekend from September through January. I have a life.â€

    “Including preseason, you’re talking about, what, like, 20 weekends of work,†he continued. â€And god forbid we make the playoffs. That’s up to five more. I’m too old to be stuck working Sundays like some teenage ballboy.â€
