Cornyn: Senate GOP tax plan to be released Thursday

  Cornyn: Senate GOP tax plan to be released Thursday The timeline, if Republicans stick to it, leaves senators with a tight schedule. Lawmakers are currently scheduled to leave for the weeklong Thanksgiving break on Nov. 17, just over a week after they will unveil their tax plan.But Senate GOP leadership is threatening to keep the chamber in session for part of the break in order to pass the tax legislation.Republicans have a narrow path to clearing a bill through the Senate. With 52 seats, they can only afford to lose two GOP senators, if every Democrat votes no, and still let Vice President Mike Pence break a tie.

Drew Brees is sticking with the Saints for the remainder of his career.

During his Tuesday appearance on Hardwick & Richards on XTRA 1360-AM, the 38-year-old quarterback said he has no intention of leaving the team he's spent the last 12 seasons with despite stalled contract talks.

"I'll handle 2018 when 2018 gets here, but right now I'm in the moment, I'm in 2017," Brees said. "We're trying to get a little bit better each and every week. I feel like we've got a great opportunity ahead of us and I don't plan on leaving New Orleans ever.

Drew Brees doesn't want to play anywhere but New Orleans . I feel like we've got a great opportunity ahead of us and I don ' t plan on leaving New Orleans ever . "Hopefully, I know all of that stuff takes care of itself when it's supposed to.

" I 'll handle 2018 when 2018 gets here, but right now I 'm in the moment, I 'm in 2017," Brees said. "We're trying to get a little bit better each and every week. I feel like we've got a great opportunity ahead of us and I don ' t plan on leaving New Orleans ever .

"Hopefully, I know all of that stuff takes care of itself when it's supposed to. I have not approached them about any contract. We just have a great understanding here. Listen, we're going to go through this season and we'll revisit it in the offseason. Right now, I'm in the moment."

The Saints are riding a seven-game winning streak that has put them atop the NFC South after a 0-2 start to the season, which is a favorable moment for a squad that hasn't had a winning season since 2013 when they went 11-5 before falling to the Seahawks in the divisional round of the playoffs. If the organization hopes to maintain its momentum, they'll need their franchise quarterback under center. But at what cost?

According to Spotrac, the Saints are estimated to have approximately $30 million in salary cap space for 2018. The numbers aren't ideal for an aging veteran who turns 39 in January, though negotiations can be made.

Panthers safety Coleman receives praise for sportsmanship

  Panthers safety Coleman receives praise for sportsmanship Julio Jones didn't know what to expect when Panthers safety Kurt Coleman ran over to him after he'd just dropped an easy touchdown pass in the end zone. Instead of rubbing it in his face, Coleman put his arm around him and told Jones, ''Glory to God.'' Jones said he had never met or talked to Coleman before that play.''I guess he's a very spiritual guy,'' Jones said. ''He said some spiritual things to me - that was it.''No taunting. No antics. Just empathy for a competitor.Coleman has received positive feedback on social media for his sportsmanship, but downplayed it this week in the locker room.
