Brees misses scrimmage after mother's passing

Mina Brees, the mother of Drew Brees, has passed away at the age of 59.

The Austin American-Stateman relays the sad news, which explains why the Saints quarterback missed the team’s annual Black and Gold Scrimmage on Saturday.

Brees has said publicly that his relationship with his mother suffered when he did not choose her as his agent when he entered the NFL.  In 2006, he asked her to stop using his likeness in materials for her campaign to be elected to the state 3rd Court of Appeals in Austin, Texas.

Mina Brees passed away in Colorado, where she was visiting her son Reid.
