New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees' remarks to WWL-AM radio Wednesday, in which he said he is frustrated with the process in getting signed to a long-term contract, have not spurred any movement in locking up the franchise quarterback.

ATL: Brees 'extremely frustrated'

Drew Brees is familiar with playing the role of company man, but now he's ready for the Saints to help him on a long-term deal. **More ...**

There has been no progress -- as has been the case for months -- regarding contract talks between Brees and the Saints, a source with knowledge of the situation said Thursday.

The team has tendered Brees with a franchise tag, which gives the team exclusive negotiating rights. However, Brees said he will not play under the one-year, franchise tender.

On Wednesday, Brees said the negotiation process has been "extremely frustrating," adding that he's "committed to getting a long-term deal."

According to The Times-Picayune, Brees said he's been especially frustrated with "the lack of communication."
