Drew Brees on GHS: I don't see Tom Brady leaving Patriots


Drew Brees and Tom Brady are very similar.

Both quarterbacks are in their 40s, among the best quarterbacks in the league and are free agents this offseason. Brady has played his entire 20-year NFL career with the Patriots, while Brees has been with the Saints since 2006.

Brees announced via social media a few weeks back that he's playing another season and it will be with the Saints, but he's yet to officially sign a new contract. Meanwhile, Brady is set to enter free agency for the first time in his career.

Appearing on The Greg Hill Show Thursday live at a Granite Telecom head shaving event to benefit Boston Children's Hospital, Brees was asked what he thinks Brady will do.

“I love Tom Brady," Brees said. "I feel the way everybody else feels about Tom Brady. He’s a legend and I don’t see him going anywhere. But, then again I can’t speak for him or anybody else.”

The Saints quarterback, who recently turned 41, said at this point in Brady's career it's likely about winning and not money.

“Well, I can’t speak for Tom, but I know for me being at this stage of my career, I just want to win. I just want to win," he said. "I think Tom has been a guy who has kind of been a model for all of us for a lot of years. I don’t think any of this is about money for Tom. I think it is about winning another championship. I also think it is probably about feeling he’s in a situation where he has all the pieces in place to do that.

"Again, I can’t speak for him, but I know at this stage of the game and knowing his mentality to a degree, it is about winning a championship.”

If Brady does not re-sign with the Patriots by March 18, he will become a free agent for the first time in his career.
