Drew Brees wants to play until he's 45 -- seriously


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) Saints quarterback Drew Brees, 35, wants to play another decade in the NFL.

"I'm serious. I'm not delusional," Brees said after practice Tuesday, per the New Orleans Times-Picayune. "I know that that's something that would be extremely difficult to do. Not many have done it. ... It could be done, but a lot of things have to fall into place."

Brees said his performance will determine how long he plays.

"I know it's one year at a time. It's, 'What have you done for me lately?'... But why not push the envelope a little bit?" Brees said. "It's certainly not going to be easy. I try to play this game like a kid. ... It is a serious business, and they don't keep you around if you don't play well."


Drew Brees confident in offense with or without Graham


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/11/2014) Saints quarterback Drew Brees isn't worried about the offense if tight end Jimmy Graham is there or not, reports USA Today. Graham is not with the team because of a contract dispute.

"I'd hate to not have Jimmy," Brees said. "I'm very confident that a deal will get done. But if it doesn't, you worry about what you do have and who you do have out there."

Last season, Graham led the Saints with 86 catches, 1,215 yards and 16 touchdowns. Brees knows that. But he knows history, too. Sean Payton arrived in New Orleans in 2006, and he built a system around Brees, which is why the quarterback is confident.

"Look at our numbers over the last eight years," he said. "We've had a lot of different guys in there. Jimmy's only been here four years. He's only been here half the time. We were putting up some pretty big numbers before he got here, and we've been putting up some big numbers since he's been here. Hey, we do what we do. It's nice when you can have guys like Jimmy, and obviously he's a big part of our offense. If he's in there, we're going to try to get him the ball. We're game-planning ways to get him the ball, ways to put him in the best position to succeed. But if he's not, somebody else is going to get those touches. We'll put those guys in position."


Drew Brees not close to retirement


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/23/2014) Saints quarterback Drew Brees is 35, but he has no plans of retiring any time soon, reports the Associated Press.

Brees said he could play at least another five years. And why not after three seasons in a row with 5,000-plus yards.

"Do I hope I can play into my 40s? Yes, I do. As long as I'm healthy and playing at a high level, then why not?" Brees said. "I certainly don't take it for granted and know that obviously you've got to prove yourself every year."


Drew Brees excited for Brandin Cooks


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/22/2014) Saints quarterback Drew Brees is excited about playing with new rookie receiver Brandin Cooks , reports ESPN.

"Yeah, it's awesome," Brees said. "I mean, we traded up to get this guy. So that tells me a lot about how we feel about this guy. Not only his talent and his skill set, but also just the type of guy he is. From all accounts, he's just a phenomenal person, a great teammate, extremely hard, tough work ethic, and just a character guy. Fits in perfect in our locker room and loves football. We love those guys."


Brandin Cooks could be the No. 1 rookie Fantasy receiver


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/9/2014) The Saints needed help at receiver after getting rid of Lance Moore and Darren Sproles this offseason, and they were aggressive in the first round of the NFL Draft. The Saints gave up the No. 27 and No. 91 picks to move up to No. 20 for Oregon State receiver Brandin Cooks.

He will now become the third receiver for the Saints behind Marques Colston and Kenny Stills, but he could end up as the No. 1 Fantasy receiver this season, even ahead of Sammy Watkins (Bills), Mike Evans (Buccaneers) and Odell Beckham Jr. (Giants), who were all drafted ahead of him. Cooks landed with the best offense and best quarterback of that group.

We'll find out how the Saints plan to use Cooks, who has elite speed but is on the smallish side at 5-foot-10, 189 pounds. Think Tavon Austin of the Rams, but hope for DeSean Jackson at his best with the Eagles. And Cooks should fly on the turf at the Superdome.

I would only draft Cooks with a late-round flier in seasonal Fantasy leagues, but he's a late first round or early second-round pick in rookie-only formats. If the Saints use him the right way -- unlike how the Rams used Austin last year -- then he could be a sleeper in 2014.

As for Stills, don't panic with this move. He still has the chance for a breakout season as the starter opposite Colston. And Drew Brees definitely benefits with the addition of Cooks.


Saints GM: No urgency to find Drew Brees' successor


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/7/2014) Saints general manager Mickey Loomis will be keeping his eyes on available quarterbacks in the draft, but said finding 35-year-old Drew Brees' successor is not a pressing issue, reports Fox Sports.

"We pay attention to that because you want to have someone in the wings who could step up and play for you," Loomis said. "I wouldn't say it's at the forefront of our minds, and yet we do recognize Drew's age. But if you talk to Drew, he's going to play a lot longer, so that's encouraging."

Loomis added he's pleased with current backup quarterbacks Luke McCown and Ryan Griffin.


Drew Brees believes in Joe Lombardi


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/30/2014) Saints quarterback Drew Brees believes new Lions offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi is going to bring out the best in Matthew Stafford, according to mlive.com.

Lombardi worked as Brees' quarterbacks coach for five seasons before joining the Lions. Brees said he sees some similarities between the Lions and Saints personnel, and believes Lombardi will find a way to make things work in Detroit. Brees added that he knew Lombardi would be in line to get a coordinator job. "You can kind of tell when assistant coaches are just kind of ready for that next step -- to be a coordinator, to be a playcaller," Brees said. 


Drew Brees open to restructuring his deal


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/14/2014) Saints quarterback Drew Brees is open to restructuring his deal. 

Brees will be 35, and will count as $18.4 million against the team's cap next season. He said he'll do whatever it takes to help the team. In order to restructure his deal, the team would likely have to add years to his deal. With the Saints projected to be $12 million over the cap, they'll need to be creative in order to make things work.


Drew Brees feels he's on 'upward tick'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/13/2014) Saints quarterback Drew Brees, who turns 35 on Wednesday, said he feels like he's on an upward tick in his career, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Brees has thrown for 5,100-plus yards in three straight seasons.

He told the paper he felt as good in 2013 as he ever had and that he looks forward to playing for a long time. If the Saints ask him to restructure his contract to sign free agents, Brees said he'll do "whatever it takes to help the team win."


Drew Brees overcomes awful first half to put up strong numbers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/11/2014) Anyone who suggested based on halftime statistics that Saints quarterback Drew Brees would post the final numbers he achieved in the Saturday playoff game at Seattle would not have been believed.

Brees was just 5 of 12 for 34 yards at intermission. Considering the brilliance of the Seahawks defense, the ferocity of the rain and the impotence of tight end Jimmy Graham, he appeared doomed to mediocrity. But a tremendous second half in which he hooked up 10 times with favorite wideout Marques Colston resulted in him finishing 24 of 43 with 309 yards and a touchdown.

Clearly bothered by the conditions, Brees suffered through a miserable second quarter in which he missed on six of eight attempts and threw for just 15 yards. He found his rhythm in the second half and sizzled in the fourth quarter with 188 yards passing in catch-up mode. But it was his terrible start that forced him to play from behind the entire game and doomed his team to defeat.


Drew Brees delivers in second half of playoff win


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/5/2014) Saints quarterback Drew Brees got off to a slow start but managed to lead his team to a 10 play, 35-yard drive which led to a Shayne Graham game-winning field goal as time expired, in a 26-24 victory over the Eagles in the NFC Wild Card round of the playoffs.

Brees was intercepted twice and was held out of the end zone in the first half. He bounced back with a 24-yard touchdown strike to Lance Moore with 10:08 remaining in the third quarter. He completed 20 of 30 passes for 250 yards, with one touchdown and two interceptions. He completed passes to 10 different players. He was sacked twice and also rushed for 13 yards on five carries.
