Draft Scout Drew Brees News
10/11/15 - QB Drew Brees had a rough game. He was sacked five times and intercepted once, and the Saints' high-powered offense scored just 17 points, including a meaningless TD on the final play of the game that made it seem closer than it was. But Brees did his job, especially on third down, where the Saints converted eight of 16 chances. And they weren't all easy ones, as Brees converted long chances with completions of 21, 21, 22 and 46 yards.
10/08/15 - QB Drew Brees said Wednesday the bruised rotator cuff in his throwing shoulder felt fine after a couple days off following Sunday night's clutch 26-20 overtime in against the Dallas Cowboys.
"Feels good. ... (I'm) ready to roll, better than last week," Brees said when he met with reporters after practice.
Brees, who missed his first game because of injury the week prior to the Cowboys' game, proudly said he was a full participant in Wednesday's practice and executed all the throws he needed to make.
"Yes, I'm full (fully participating in practice)," he said. "Listen, I told the trainers and (head coach) Sean (Payton) to take me off the (injury) report. I don't like being on there."
When asked if he was sick of reporters asking him about the injury, Brees joked, "Yes I am ... so you don't have to ask me anymore."
10/05/15 - QB Drew Brees surpassed a couple of significant passing milestones in his team's 26-20 overtime victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night.
In the first quarter, Brees recorded the 5,000th completion of his 15-year career when he tossed a 3-yard scoring pass to tight end Josh Hill. Brees became only the third player with 5,000 completions, joining Brett Favre and Peyton Manning in that select list.
Then, on an 80-yard pass play to running back C.J. Spiller in overtime that gave the Saints the win, Brees became only the fifth player with 400 career touchdown passes -- joining Favre, Manning, Dan Marino and Tom Brady.
Brees said he rarely thinks about numbers during a game, but had heard some whispers on the sideline that he had gotten within one of the 400-touchdown mark on Hill's score. That meant No. 400 could win a game the previously-winless Saints desperately needed.
"This rarely happens, but I did think to myself, maybe God intended No. 400 to be the one that wins this game," Brees said he thought as the Saints prepared for overtime. "Thanks to C.J. Spiller, that happened."
In return, Spiller made sure his first touchdown as a member of the Saints got to its rightful owner.
"This is your ball, brother," Spiller told Brees while delivering the milestone ball to his quarterback. "You deserve it."
10/04/15 - QB Drew Brees' 80-yard touchdown pass just 13 seconds into overtime -- Brees' second of the game -- gave the veteran 400 TD passes for his career. Brees finished 33-for-41 for 359 yards with no interceptions. He also reached the 5,000 career completion mark.
As impressive as Brees' statistics looked, his right arm still is not 100 percent. Two of his throws should have been easily intercepted (one was nullified by a defensive penalty and the other was dropped). In the first half, Brees also badly underthrew WR Brandin Cooks on a deep sideline throw. Asked about his arm, Brees said: "I felt good -- good enough to get the job done. ... Like I said, I got the job done. It's fine."
10/02/15 - QB Drew Brees, recovering from a bruised rotator cuff in his throwing shoulder, is expected to play Sunday night against the Cowboys.
Coach Sean Payton said Friday he plans for Brees to start after he sat out last Sunday's 27-22 loss to the Carolina Panthers, missing the first game because of injury in his 10-year career with the Saints.
