Draft Scout Drew Brees News
09/12/17 - QB Drew Brees completed 27 of 37 pass attempts for 291 yards and one touchdown against Minnesota. The Saints kicked field goals on their first four trips to the red zone before Brees connected with TE Coby Fleener for an 8-yard touchdown with 1:56 left in the game.
07/27/17 - QB Drew Brees started his 17th NFL training camp and 12th as quarterback of the New Orleans Saints on Thursday. But it's unclear how much more Brees will be able to add to his legacy with the Saints. The team has finished 7-9 in each of the past three seasons and Brees' contract expires after this season. Brees said hecontract talks with the Saints are not currently happening. "I don't expect them to, I don't really desire them to," he said. "I just want to play football; I want to help this team win. For me, it's all about this season and how good can we be this season. That's really all I'm focused on now. My sense of urgency is in making myself and my team better and putting ourselves in the best position to go out this year and have success. And I know that that stuff takes care of itself when it's supposed to, and that just shouldn't be the priority right now."
06/13/17 - QB Drew Brees was his usual self in Tuesday's practice. He connected on 14 of 18 pass attempts during team drills and was also sharp in hitting on four of five attempts in 7-on-7 work. The only incompletion there came on a drop by TE Coby Fleener. Brees had two throws that could have been picked off, though. WR Corey Fuller saved one when he challenged LB Craig Robertson, who had the ball go off his hands. Second-year S Vonn Bell also had a potential interception bounce off his chest.
04/01/17 - QB Drew Brees is heading into the final year of his contract but the 38-year-old New Orleans Saints quarterback insists he is not concerned about getting an extension from the team. Brees previously said he is not seeking a new deal this offseason, including again on Friday while speaking at a Habitat for Humanity project in New Orleans.
He said waiting until the end of the season is in the best interest of himself and the team. "I'm just trying to stress the sense of urgency," Brees told the New Orleans Times-Picayune. "I'm just so focused on this year, just being in the moment, not thinking about anything beyond this and taking every other year as it comes. But, also, we're building something here. We are building something. I feel like we have a window of opportunity." Brees understands the Saints might be looking to the future and could select a quarterback in this year's draft to eventually replace him as the starter. "Listen, I trust our organization, so if they felt like that was what was in the best interest of our team long term, then that's the decision," Brees said in another interview Friday on SiriusXM NFL Radio. "Again, my mindset is, this is my team. I'm the quarterback of this team, and I got to put us in the best position I can to win and to win right now. It doesn't change my approach or mindset at all." The Saints earlier this week signed quarterback Chase Daniel, who will compete with Luke McCown and Garrett Grayson for a backup role to Brees in 2017.
12/26/16 - QB Drew Brees came up just 1 yard shy of another 300-yard passing game in the victory over the Bucs, but he did extend another personal streak in the process. Brees, who completed 23 of 34 pass attempts, has thrown for at least 200 yards in 50 consecutive games. The 200-yard streak began on Dec. 8, 2013, when he threw for 313 yards against the Panthers. That came six days after Brees was held to 147 passing yards by the Seahawks.
