Drew Brees Weighs In on the Saints QB Battle

SJ - July 19, 2021

Drew Brees retired following a disappointing loss in the playoffs last season.  He dragged it out a little bit, but the writing was on the wall with his poor play.

The Saints plan to replace the future Hall of Famer is a quarterback battle between Jameis Winston and Taysom Hil.  Brees weighed in on that battle, sort of.

"Whatever happens, in terms of whoever is the starter, I do think there is a scenario where both of them are playing.  If Jameis is the starter I think Taysom is seeing a lot of action at quarterback, maybe even moreso than he did with me."

Pretty much Brees hopes they both have fun.  It sounds like he thinks Taysom should be given the job, but doesn't want to be wrong if Winston and his towel somehow beat out the much more exciting Taysom Hill.
