The New Orleans Saints and quarterback Drew Brees have been trying to work out an extension that would take some pressure off the team’s salary cap, which is one of the worst in the NFL going forward.
Despite the negotiations, he is going to attend OTAs when they start later this week.
Brees spoke with ESPN’s Mike Triplett on Monday and said that he doesn’t want to miss anything this year. He is confident that a deal will get done, but he is focused on taking the field with the team first and foremost.
“I’m not missing any offseason,” Brees said.
Many believe that Brees’s career in the NFL could be coming to an end very soon, but he doesn’t want that to distract him. He wants to end his career as a Saint and he wants to help out their cap room anyway he can.
In 10 years with the Saints, Drew Brees has thrown for a francise record 48,555 yards and 348 touchdowns. He has led the league in passing six times, was twice NFL Offensive Player of the Year, and led the team to a win in Super Bowl XLIV, their first in team history.
