New Orleans Saints: Prime Brees, Shockey's Miami High
Written by 

SOME hither, others yon: Former Saints tight end Jeremy Shockey passed a physical for the Miami Dolphins trainers on Thursday. According to the Miami Herald, the negotiations have not yet intensified, but something is likely to happen fast if a deal is going to get done.  Shockey, who was a star at the University of Miami  currently lives in Miami. “It would be a dream to play for the Dolphins,” Shockey told the Miami Herald. “They’ve got great coaches – Tony Sparano and (tight ends coach) Dan Campbell. I played with Dan on the Giants. And they’ve got a bunch of good guys on that team.


 

“It’d be an honor to play here. But we’ll see. This is unchartered water for me.”

Saints on how much longer can Drew Brees continue playing at his current Pro Bowl level: "He hasn't even finished the front nine yet and made the turn. With the way he's played for us the past five years, he's still a guy we can sell to other free agents who are thinking of coming here and even our own free agents who might be thinking of going elsewhere. 'Hey, come join us. We have Drew Brees  playing quarterback for us.' No, he' still playing at a very high level and I don't see any reason for that to change."...

However, there is a posting on Bleacher Report that suggests that New Orleans Saints do what it can to find a replacement for Brees should the star fade. 

According to the piece, Green Bay found Aaron Rodgers to back up Brett Farve but the Phoenix Cardinals did not do the same with Kurt Warner
