Brees: 'American people need sports right now'

Drew Brees believes sports will eventually play a big part in the nation's recovery process from the coronavirus pandemic. "That's typically something that's really brought us through a lot of tough situations throughout our country," Brees said.

Saints DE Cameron Jordan, G Jahri Evans and flex/punt returner Darren Sproles were named to the NFL's 2010s all-decade team. Drew Brees, however, missed the team in an impossibly-close battle with Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers. A strong case could be made for Brees over Rodgers when it comes to total body of work. It's a strange quirk of the honor, though, that Brees won his Super Bowl in the previous decade (2009) while Rodgers won his in 2010. Rodgers was also named league MVP in 2011 and 2014.

Sean Payton called himself a “big dummy” for suggesting on ESPN's Get Up on Tuesday morning that Drew Brees had announced this would be his “final season.” Payton said it's “not like a big secret that I let out of the bag.” He said he just had it in his mind that this offseason was unique since Brees spent so much time considering retirement before announcing he'd come back. “I honestly don't know if it's his last year,” Payton said. “Man, that thing blew up on me.”
