Drew Brees: It wasn’t like I was going anywhere

Drew Brees had no interest in leaving New Orleans. The Saints knew it, and 31 other teams knew it.

Still, Brees said he was offered “a lot more elsewhere.”

He stayed for a two-year, $50 million deal, not wanting to kill the Saints’ cap by maxing out his contract, he said.

“It wasn’t like I was going anywhere,” Brees reiterated again Tuesday afternoon on WWLA FM, via Josh Katzenstein of the Times-Picayune. “I’ve made that clear from Day 1.”

Brees, 39, said after the loss to the Vikings in the divisional round that he wanted to remain with the Saints, and obviously it worked out that way.

    Sure if they woulda been firm with a 2 years $30-$40 million offer, you think drew stays?

    why lowball him? smh

  2. “It wasn’t like I was going anywhere,”

    Unless they tried to insult me with something under 27 mill guarenteed.

  3. I want to see if there are any posts from the consistent harpies who ALWAYS post that Brees is selfish, greedy and only thinks of himself, whenever there are stories about his contract.

  4. Everyone who has bashed Kirk Cousins needs to remember where Brees was before he joined the Saints. You can stuff your hate. You fools.

  5. He is selfish and greedy. Cap like $189 million. Brees taking $25 million of that on a team of 51. he taking the big piece of chicken, little piece, and some dessert.

  6. Geez, he’s worth every damn penny — without him the Saints are average at very best.

  7. Mr. Brees, you are highly overrated. You have one SB win, I repeat one Super Bowl win!!!
    Might have something to do with the Saints’ bottom 5 defenses genius. If Brady had those atrocious defenses he’d have one Super Bowl win too.
