Draft Scout Drew Brees News
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.

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.
