A quote from that article:

Smith says, "People say the offer was an insult. I don't care what people think. If [Brees] wanted to come back, he would have accepted the offer."

Brees wanted desperately to return to San Diego. "I was supposed to be the guy to take that team to the next step," he says. "But then I started thinking, How can I go back when that's what they think of me?"

It was a tough personnel call for a bad injury....but it's interesting quote.
