TWEETS:

Just on , firmed up that Drew Brees has no plans to report to training camp without a long-term deal in place by next Monday

Without new deal, Brees will leave guessing as to when he'll eventually show up for regular season; not necessarily week 1.

Just got home from another workout. I was in the sand pit while it was raining!!! Made me feel like I was really gettin it lol no days off

Woke up appreciative to those who helped me get where I am today, but thankful 2 those who told me "NO" because they helped even more

Now that the wife's gone, I won't be bothered w/ silly things.. like my phone blowing up while I do a rail off a Saintsation's ass

Big ups to my homie !! Happy Bday bruh!

If you didn't believe me, will you believe ? Brees won't show up for a tag tender. Ain't gonna happen!

Let's say July 16 comes and he hasn't signed. He will have passed on a 90-100 million dollar long term deal to get to that point.

How, then, can anyone think that he would show up just to keep from losing 17 million dollars, and risk injury in the process?

I'm sorry, but if you think that Drew Brees would turn down a long-term deal and then play under the tag, you are deluding yourself.

This is what I'm doin for my bday

Looking forward to another night on Time to start getting into training camp talk!!

Looking forward to and joining us tonight on tune in!!

The Saints & joint practices in Foxborough (Aug. 7-8) are free/open to the public (weather permitting)

We are accepting registrations for our final summer camp until 5pm today!!!! SIGN UP HERE

Why when I dance like Usher does it not look as sweet?

fans my bday is aug 17 never was ever to celebrate because of camp. But this year we have a pre season game on that day.

Wouldn't want to be no other place..

": Look I returned the grocery cart back in the rain " hahaha good man!!

Time too go and get this run in! Thinking if I wanna do 110s or full gassers, hmmmm
