Saints News, 1/27/14: Drew Brees Offers Super Bowl Advice To Russell Wilson

New, comments

“We've been in communication over the past week, just about the experience,” Wilson said when asked about Brees on Sunday after arriving in New Jersey for Super Bowl XLVIII. “Like I said, he knows I look up to him. He's a great individual and he was just talking about the experience, and it's no different. The biggest thing is taking care of all tickets and taking care of all family early in the week last week, which I was able to do last Monday and just focus on the game.” This Saints fan thinks this is nice and all, but I'm still rooting for Peyton and the Broncos next week.
