On Monday Drew Brees addressed a report released Sunday that said the Saints were looking to draft his replacement. Brees said he “got wind” of the report after the game, Amos Morale of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
“Something like that — I know it has absolutely no validity to it,” Brees said. “A lot of time you can look at who’s writing that stuff and you can say ‘alight this guy is trying to make a splash or trying to make a name for himself’ whatever it might be.
“In a lot of cases I’m not sure where they get their information, if they just completely make it up or if there are sources that are their cousins.”
