What will Drew Brees do when his days of playing football are behind him? Well, he might move up to the press box and take a crack at watching games as an unbiased observer during TV broadcasts, even for New Orleans Saints games.

An ESPN report from earlier this offseason named Brees among several possible candidates who could leave the playing field for a broadcast station, offering his analysis and perspective of games. Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo made the leap in recent years, and it’s clear other networks are eager to try and recreate his success.

Drew Brees says he'll decide on NFL future in 'a month or so'

It’ll be the New Orleans Saints or retirement for Drew Brees, the Hall of Fame-bound quarterback who’s played 19 seasons in the NFL. Brees has broken every record in the book during his 14 years with the Saints, and seen each of his four children grow up in New Orleans. With his contract set to expire in March, he knows that a lot of people are waiting for him to decide whether he’ll play one more year — including the Saints themselves, who must also work out new contracts with backups Teddy Bridgewater and Taysom Hill. For his part, Brees is just sorry that he can’t give any better soundbites at this time.

Brees apologized for responding with “the same boring answers each year” during a Saturday media availability session ahead of the 2020 Pro Bowl game. He’s a backup for the NFC team this year, meaning he’ll have to wait for Seattle Seahawks star Russell Wilson to run the first-string offense in the all-star game before Brees gets his own spot in the limelight. But he’s just content in getting to share the time with his peers and family.

Watch: Cam Jordan mercilessly dusts a few kids in a Pro Bowl foot race

There are things you don’t do, like choosing to tug Superman’s cape or pull the mask off the Lone Ranger. You also don’t challenge New Orleans Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan to a race.

That’s what a few children and young teens discovered at an event ahead of the 2020 Pro Bowl when they lined up for a sprint against the 6-foot-4, 287-pound sack artist. Some NFL stars would take the opportunity to let the kids enjoy the spotlight for a moment by throwing the race. But Jordan treated it like a competition.

At least he gave them a second’s head start. But by the time Jordan burst out of his stance, it was no contest, leaving all three of his challengers in the dust.

2019 Saints Season in Review: Quarterback Taysom Hill

By Kade Kistner | Saints Wire

We continue our season reviews at Saints Wire with New Orleans Saints third-string quarterback and pending restricted free agent, Taysom Hill. In 2019, Hill saw an expanded role on the offense from his 2018 production, and continued to be a stalwart on the special teams unit.

Hill quickly gained with the fan base in 2018 when he was utilized in a utility-type role, rather than his conventional position. In 2019, that role became even more prominent earning him the nickname of “Swiss Army Knife”.

Level of play in 2019


Hill cannot be judged solely on his quarterbacking skills in 2019. If that’s the case, his 105 passing yards seem quite lackluster. Instead, what is most impressive are his receiving touchdowns on the season. His seven receiving touchdowns (including the playoffs) put him ahead of players such as Julio Jones, Julian Edelman, and Zach Ertz. It also proved that he became a legitimate weapon for Drew Brees to use on the offense.

Sometimes you’re dealt a tough hand, but you still have to make it work. That’s what the New Orleans Saints did in the 2019 NFL Draft, lacking picks in the first, third, and fourth rounds, thanks to some smart decisions and crafty trades.

In a collaboration from ESPN and Pro Football Focus, the Saints rookie class was ranked fifth-best in the NFL. Not bad for a team lacking so much draft capital:

Post season Lagniappe: Senior Bowl Game Thread, Shriner's Bowl, Pro Bowl

Man it’s the dreaded offseason. Yet there is much football to talk about. Or not. It’s a Lagniappe thread so “most” topics are fair game. Just follow the guidelines and every thing will be kool.

The Shriners Bowl was last Saturday. Think this might be the first time I haven’t either watched it live or at least recorded it to watch. Did anyone watch and maybe see someone of interest for the upcoming draft?
