Drew Brees: Labor fight isn’t about players like me | ProFootballTalk
"I know that I’m fighting for so many people here, this is for former players in the form of improving their pensions and disability benefits to take care of those guys that built this game for us and future players too," Brees said on XX 1090, via SportsRadioInterviews.com. "To be honest with you, this is one of those things that when a settlement is reached, that settlement is something that I’m probably never going to benefit from. It’s guys before me, it’s guys that are going to come after me. So for me, there’s so many guys that made sacrifices before us to make this game better, to improve health and safety in this game, and there’s still many things that need to be done to improve this game. And I think that’s what we have in mind as players, that’s what I have in mind — is how can we improve this game for everybody."
