(WGNO) – New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees randomly was selected for a drug test this weekend. This is not generally news but it comes after the 35-year-old told reporters Friday that he would like to play football for 10 more years.
“I’m not getting ahead myself, like it’s a pipe dream, at 45. I understand the challenges that come along with that. But why not? If I can stay healthy, and I’m having fun and playing at a high level, why wouldn’t I wanna do that? The biggest challenge is physically, the maintenance, the recovery, the way you train. You gotta hope that you stay healthy, but why not?” Brees told NFL.com’s Albert Breer.
Then Brees was selected for a drug test.
Coincidence? You decide.
