Brees visits Letterman next week

It’s unknown whether Drew Brees currently is talking to the Saints.  It is known that next week he’ll be talking to David Letterman.

The unsigned quarterback will appear Tuesday on The Late Show With David Letterman, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune.  It’ll be Brees’ third appearance, and his first since March 2010.

And while it’s unlikely Drew will say anything particularly revealing, Letterman has in the past produced some interesting nuggets from NFL guests.  In April 2008, for example, Brett Favre dropped a very strong hint that he’d possibly be coming back, despite retiring a month earlier.
