"I have his number," Brees said...

...as he described a series of calls and texts to Sproles: "We need you, baby. Come join us. You'll fit in great. Win a championship. Let's break some records. Let's do something special. Let's go." Brees called the addition of Sproles "awesome" and said Sproles' speed and versatility would "absolutely" allow the Saints to run many of the same plays originally designed for Bush. Brees was San Diego's QB in 2005 when Sproles, an Olathe (KS) native, was drafted by the Chargers out of Kansas State and had the first of his five seasons with more than 1,000 kickoff return yards. Brees also maintains an offseason San Diego residence and trained with Sproles earlier this year.
