Saints' Brees taking career one year at a time


As Saints quarterback Drew Brees enters what is essentially the final year of his current contract and has now crossed the age threshold into his 40s, the question continues to pop up: How long do you plan to play in the NFL?

Brees was asked the 2019 edition of this question Wednesday night during an appearance on WWL Radio’s “Sports Talk.”

“Do I have to answer this every year?” Brees laughed. “Until I hang it up I guess? Listen, I’m having fun. Just taking it one year at a time. Trying to stay in the moment. Nothing’s changed from two or three years ago when I took that approach and I kind of realized that I was closer to the end than I was to the beginning. I just wanted to value each and every second of it. All I’m thinking about is this team and trying to achieve the goals that we set for ourselves.”

Brees also addressed the change the Saints will need to make at center, his growing chemistry with new tight end target Jared Cook, and what the Black and Gold receivers not named Michael Thomas bring to the table.
