*Breaking* Saints QB Drew Brees is seriously thinking about opting out of season due to #COVID19 concerns, source says he will discuss with his wife again before making final decision.— Vegas Gambling Steam (@Pregame_Steam) July 28, 2020
Wow this would be the first major offensive player to say no thanks, on the 2020 season if Drew Brees decides he’s out. We already saw Hightower from New England opt out and I’d expect we’re going to see more players do the same. It will be interesting to see who opts out and who wants to but doesn’t. I have a feeling there are a lot of guys out there that are thinking about bagging this season but the pressure of disappointing teammates has to be huge.
Drew Brees doesn’t fall in that category because all his teammates now hate him. It’s actually an amazing play by him. Opt out of the season because you know this is going to be the most uncomfortable locker room ever assembled. And just blame it on COVID.
Follow that up with an off-season retirement and boom. Like the whole ‘I don’t get it’ thing never happened.
Chess not checkers.
