Saints' Dennis Allen calls Drew Brees' tweet about potential NFL return 'a comment made in jest'

Drew Brees made some waves on Sunday when he seemingly implied that there was a chance he could return to the NFL.

Saints boost OL depth with veteran addition

The New Orleans Saints signed veteran offensive lineman Josh Andrews to a one-year contract on Monday, according to Andrews’ agent, Brett Tessler. Andrews played in 2 games last season for the Atlanta Falcons, mainly on special teams. In 2020, Andrews played in 15 games for the New York Jets,...

NFL Notes: Drew Brees, Jimmy Garoppolo, Sean McVay

NBC Sports’ Peter King checked in with a few sources and believes it’s unlikely former Saints QB Drew Brees unretires and returns to the field this season. One friend of Brees told King the former quarterback hasn’t discussed playing as an option even though it seems his time at NBC as an analyst will end after one season. Others added Brees’ left shoulder which required surgery would be a big obstacle for the 43-year-old to make a comeback after a year off.

Mavericks owner Mark Cuban fires back at Lil Wayne after 'Luka a ho' tweet

A week ago, Lil Wayne let his feelings be known about Dallas Mavericks superstar Luka Dončić when he tweeted during a Game 4 win over the Phoenix Suns, "Luka a ho." There's little doubt that the 23-year-old Dončić does a little bit of flopping - that's what seemed to incite Weezy, who likely was displeased that Dončić drew a couple quick offensive fouls on the New Orleans rapper's good friend Chris Paul - and more than a little bit of complaining to the referees, but unfortunately for Weezy, Dončić also is really, really, really good.
