Drew Brees Uninterested In Listening To Offers From Rival Teams

Drew Brees Uninterested In Listening To Offers From Rival Teams

"I've been of part of talented teams in the past, throughout my career, though, that have not lived up to expectations, and I've been a part of teams that are just gutsy and gritty and surpassed expectations", Brees said. If he returns to lead New Orleans' offense in 2018, the Saints should once again be one of the top teams in the NFC. It's the same way I felt 12 years ago.

Now, Payton isn't giving us any reason to think he doesn't want Brees back.

For Brees, the priority is winning.

The move could be construed as rubbing additional salt in the wound after the Falcons squandered a 25-point lead in Super Bowl LI.

Brees has passed for 58,097 yards and 408 touchdowns, won a Super Bowl and led New Orleans to six playoff berths.

"Do I feel like this team has what it takes?" This season, his completion rate of 72 percent set an National Football League record.

"We're just two days removed, so I really haven't given it a ton of thought - other than, I know where my mindset's been the whole time, and that's that I'll be here", said Brees, who turned 39 on Monday. "When it happens, I'll let you guys know, but as of right this second, it hasn't happened". That gives the team some level of urgency to get a deal done, especially since they're unable to use the franchise tag on Brees. But they could also draft a quarterback and groom him behind Brees for a year or two. Brees and the Saints didn't discuss an extension lsat offseason.

Payton came under fire for another gesture earlier this season, as the coach appeared to make a choking sign toward Atlanta running back Devonta Freeman in Week 14.

Saints coach Sean Payton held his season-ending press conference on Tuesday and although he was willing to answer most questions that he was asked during the roughly 10-minute session, there was one subject he definitely didn't want to talk about: The future of Drew Brees.
