Bluegreen Vacations, a leader in the vacation ownership industry announced today that its associates at its New Orleans based resort Club La Pension are celebrating Drew Brees' new professional-football contract.
According to ESPN.com, the New Orleans quarterback announced on Friday that he "agreed to a five-year, $100 million deal that includes contract that includes a first-year take in 2012 of $40 million. For all practical purposes, the guaranteed money is considered by all parties involved to be an NFL-record $60 million, though there are contractual, but unlikely, outs for the team before he would receive all of that sum." He had until 4pm on Monday, July 16th to sign a long-term contract with the team.
"We are really excited," said Zandrea Pfeiffer, general manager of Bluegreen's Club La Pension Resort. "Drew Brees is awesome, and he's really committed to the city. He and his wife do a lot of charity work and contribute to the local economy with their various businesses. He's great role model."
"Football is great for the city overall," Pfeiffer continued. "It's amazing how it brings people together from all walks of life, backgrounds and political interests."
