The Saints find themselves on the outside looking in with the season winding down, a spot this time a year that aren’t too familiar with and a lot of that has to do with Drew Brees.
The legendary QB called it quits last season after historic run in New Orleans, leaving Jameis Winston to captain the ship. The Saints were in prime position to contend for an NFC Championship once again until Jameis Winston’s ACL tear derailed their season.
Left with Taysom Hill and Trevor Siemian under center, the Saints reportedly made a last ditch effort to save their year, calling up Drew to see if he would give it one last go.
According to Nick Underhill, he sent back a photo of him golfing barefoot in Hawaii.
Brees reportedly strongly considered it, but ultimately didn’t want to hold back the team feeling as if he couldn’t make every throw that was required for him and the Saints to play their best.
