Drew Brees shot down any speculation that he’d be ending his retirement.
The legendary former New Orleans Saints quarterback was asked about the chances of him returning to New Orleans halftime of Sunday night’s Cowboys-Vikings game, he said he only has plans to continue his job at NBC.
“I’ll be there Saturday to call the Notre Dame-Navy game, and I’ll be here Sunday,” Brees said.
The Saints improved to 5-2 with Sunday’s win behind backup QB Trevor Siemian tossing for 159 yards and a touchdown in the victory. Brees also was asked about his opinion as Siemian as New Orleans’ starter moving forward.
“I think he’s going to do well,” Brees said. “That’s exactly why he brought him in last year when I got hurt. He’s a cerebral guy who can pick up the system quickly. He can execute it.
“The bottom line is he has two really good running backs and a great defense,” Brees continued. “He’ll play within the system and I think Sean Payton has a lot of confidence in him.”
Taysom Hill, who is out with an injury, has four pass attempts, three rushing touchdowns and four receptions so far this season.
