Saints' Drew Brees ends glove experiment
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(6/16/15) Saints quarterback Drew Brees wore a glove on his left (non-throwing) hand during OTAs last week.
The experiment was short-lived, as the glove was gone at Tuesday's practice.
"I just experimented with it just kind of for fun when it came to just grip," Brees said, per NOLA.com. "I'm really just a bare hand guy but I think there are times when it can be necessary.So at least just having a feel for it in case that time does come it's not the first time I've ever done it."
Saints QB Brees on Graham: 'Can't dwell on who you don't have'
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(5/28/15) Saints quarterback Drew Brees lost a huge offensive weapon in tight end Jimmy Graham this offseason, but the Pro Bowler is still confident in the weapons he'll have this year, per The Times-Picayune.
"You can't dwell on who you don't have," Brees said."I love Ben Watson and Josh Hill and I feel like they can make a big impact for us."
The Saints traded Graham to the Seahawks this offseason, but added runningback C.J. Spiller, who has already impressed Brees.
"There's really nothing he can't do," Brees said of Spiller.
Graham caught 85 passes for 889 yards and 10 touchdowns last season for the Saints.
Saints' Drew Brees says young receivers keep him sharp
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(5/21/15) Saints quarterback Drew Brees is 36 years old, but the team's young stable of wide receivers helps keep him fresh.
"That's good. That creates a sense of urgency. And I like that. Because it kind of takes me back to basics, too," Brees said, per the Times Picayune. "All of a sudden I have to communicate and verbalize a route or a concept or a thought process in regards to something, so it just reiterates it to me, hey, what were the origins of this route and how have we developed it over time and how has it evolved? How have we gotten to this point?"
Drew Brees: Garrett Grayson fits in well
|(5/20/15) Saints quarterback Drew Brees doesn't hate his potential replacement Garrett Grayson, in fact, he likes him, per The Times-Picayune.
"I like him," Brees said. "He's fit in well with our quarterback room. We're guys that we like to have fun, certainly want to work, want to push each other and compete and he falls right in line with that."
Grayson was the Saints' first pick in the third round of this year's NFL draft.
Saints' Payton: I did not speak with Brees before drafting Grayson
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/2/15) Saints coach Sean Payton told reporters he did not speak with Drew Brees prior to the draft, per the team's website. With the 75th overall pick, New Orleans selected Colorado State quarterback Garrett Grayson, who will compete with Ryan Griffin and Luke McCown to serve as Brees' backup next season.
"No, no. I think every year we are just constantly evaluating the players at positions," Payton said, per the team's official website. "I think it would be different if all of a sudden we are taking a quarterback in the first round and we had a different vision, but in our case it is pretty clear, we love our starter.
"It gives the young players behind him a chance to mature and develop. Look, nothing is given to any of these guys, you guys have been here long enough to see us operate as a staff. Garrett (Grayson) is going to have to come in and compete with Ryan (Griffin). He is going to have to compete with Luke (McCown), but no."
|Drew Brees is still in New Orleans, but Jimmy Graham and Kenny Stills are not. Losing that much production (1,820 yards and 13 touchdowns in 2014) stings a lot, but something caught our eye that suggests that Brees won't be so bad. From 2006 to 2010 -- five years before Jimmy Graham really became a superstar -- Brees averaged 4,583 yards and 31 touchdowns per season with the Saints. Brees topped both of those averages in 2014, being one of five quarterbacks to pass for more than 4,500 yards and one of eight to throw at least 31 touchdowns. Granted, Graham and Stills played a role in that. But with the Saints adding C.J. Spiller and promoting tight end Josh Hill and receiver Nick Toon, not to mention getting back second-year receiver Brandin Cooks, all while rebuilding the O-line, maybe Brees' outlook isn't so bad. He's not worth a Top 30 pick, but to call him a bust or a risky pick is off base. We'd take Brees soon after Matt Ryan gets taken in Round 4 or so in standard leagues. Brees will still be a first-round pick in leagues that start two quarterbacks.
