Saints News, 9/7/15: Drew Brees Moonlights as Crocodile Hunter

New, comments

From Mike Triplett at ESPN.com: Drew Brees will tackle the Panamanian jungle -- and a live crocodile -- in tonight’s episode of NBC’s “Running Wild with Bear Grylls.” Based on some sneak peeks of the show, Brees conquers the croc after pouncing on its back. He also goes rappelling into a cave while navigating the jungle with the survival expert.
