Coming on the heels of a joint statement from the three quarterbacks whose name appear atop the antitrust lawsuit against the league that the time has come to get a deal done, it looks like one of the plans to do more than talk.
Our pal Scott Kaplan of XX 1090 reports that Saints quarterback Drew Brees has said he’ll travel to New York on Thursday to join the labor negotiations.
Based on the statement from Brees, Peyton Manning, and Tom Brady, Brees’ presence suggests that the goal will be to get a deal done.
Brees has not been involved in negotiations since the talks fell apart in March, leading to the antitrust lawsuit and the lockout.
The Super Bowl XLIV MVP will join Scott Kaplan and Billy Ray Smith on XX 1090 at 11:40 a.m. ET to talk about his plans. You can listen to the interview at the XX 1090 website.
