NFL Notes: Drew Brees, Josh Brown, Draft, Giants

Drew Brees

Saints QB Drew Brees mentioned that he still has a “few more” good years left in him.

“I got a few more at least,” Brees said on Good Morning Football Thursday, via NFL.com.

“When you first get into the league you think you’re invincible, right? You think you’re going to last forever. But I understand now, I’m just finishing my 16th season and I’m probably a little closer to the end than I am the beginning. So I just want to create a tremendous sense of urgency for every single year. I don’t want to look any further past this year and what’s right in front of us. Especially with what we’ve gone through over the last three years while watching other teams from the NFC South go to the Super Bowl.

Carolina two years ago and Atlanta this year, that’s good for those guys and their teams because they’ve earned it. But I’d like to see us back there and that’s what I’m focused on.”

Josh Brown

Former Giants K Josh Brown insisted during an interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America” that he “never” hit his wife.

The world now thinks that I beat my wife,” Brown said, via SNY.com. “I never hit her. Never once.”

Brown previously confessed in journal entries to abusing his wife “physically, mentally, emotionally and verbally.

I mean, I had put my hands on her,” Browns said. “I kicked the chair. I held her down. The holding down was the worst moment in our marriage.

“I never hit her. I never slapped her. I never choked her. I never did those types of things.”

The Giants released Brown, despite keeping him on their active roster for the start of the season.

The NFL is still investigating the matter after more information become available to them last year, but it would be surprising to see him return to the NFL at any point.

Draft

  • USC DT Stevie Tu’ikolovatu mentioned that the four NFL teams that have shown the most interest in him are the Jaguars, Dolphins, Seahawks, and Patriots. (Tampa Bay Times)
  • An NFL scout tells Dane Brugler regarding Miami TE David Njoku: “Our TE coach said it’s the most upside he’s ever seen in a TE prospect.”

Giants

  • Tony Pauline of DraftAnalyst.com reports that South Alabama TE Gerald Everett is “the tight end of choice for the New York Giants.
  • Everett previously told Connor Hughes of NJ.com that the feeling is mutual and “the Giants are atop my list” at the Senior Bowl, so this appears to be something to keep an eye on in the coming months.
