NFL Notes: Drew Brees, Draft, Browns, Cowboys


Drew Brees

Saints QB Drew Brees tells Sirius XM NFL Radio that he thinks he can play until he’s 45 years old.

“Taking it one year at a time, but I feel like I can play until I’m 45,” Brees said. “It’s a huge investment though.”

Brees addressed the Brandin Cooks trade in an interview with Pro Football Talk.

There was so much speculation about his intentions and that kind of thing in regards to him wanting to be here or not wanting to be here,” Brees said, via the Times-Picayune. “I think a lot of that was kind of fostered by the media and that sort of thing.

“But at the end of the day, I hope that he got what he wanted or got to a good situation, which I think he did. And obviously we got some draft picks out of it. So at the end of the day, I want what’s best for him and what’s best for us. Hopefully that accomplished that.”
