    Drew Brees Going To Discuss Deal With Saints

    Wednesday, February 21, 9:59 PM

    Free agent quarterback Drew Brees will meet with the Saints at the NFL Combine to discuss a short-term deal. This year's Combine will be held February 27 until March 5, so it is just under a week away. Per NFL Network's Rapoport, the expectation is Brees will not try to "break the bank" by looking to become the NFL's highest-paid quarterback, which he conceivably could do. Instead, Brees is expected to seek $20-25 million annually, less than Jimmy Garoppolo's $27.5 million per year from the 49ers.

    Childhood and Highschool

    Drew Charles Brees was born on January 15, 1979, in Austin, TX, to attorneys Eugene Wilson “Chip” Brees II and Mina Ruth Brees. Brees began playing contact football in high school, playing QB for the Westlake High School “Chaparrals.” As a junior, Brees led the team to a 16-0 record, on 103 pass completions for 1,933 yards and 19 passing TDs. After blowing out his ACL and requiring time to recover from the injury, Brees retuned to form with stats in his senior year at Westlake of 211 of 333 passes completed, 3,528 yards passing and 31 touchdowns.

    The school posted a 12–0–1 record and in 1996 defeated Abilene Cooper (led by future Oakland Raiders RB Dominick Rhodes) 55–15 in the state 5A Division title game.  Brees received honorable mention homors in the 1997 Texas State High School all-star football team where he played alongside fellow prep star and friend LaDainian Tomlinson (San Diego Chargers, New York Jets). He was also honored in his senior year as a member of the USA Today All-USA high school team
