New Orleans Saints Brees NFL Retiree Statement Haunts Lawsuit
Written by 

Drew BreesA group of retired NFL players have filed a lawsuit against the NFL


In support of the argument that current players aren't committed to taking care of the retired players, the lawsuit echos this quote from Drew Brees: "There's some guys out there that have made bad business decisions. They took their pensions early because they never went out and got a job. They've had a couple of divorces and they're making pavements to this place and that place. And that's why they don't have money. They've had a couple of divorces and that's why they don't have money. And they're coming to us to basically say, 'Please make up for my bad judgment." The retired players claim that this quote constitutes "antipathy for NFL retirees" from the Saints quarterback

Brees was active in early mediation sessions, but has not been involved in any of the recent talks, which possibly are laying the foundation for a settlement.

The lawyers met for 11 hours on Wednesday in Manhattan, working on the crafting of language that will appear in the new CBA, if andwhen a new CBA is finalized.

Thursday looks to be the biggest day to date in determining whether this deal can be worked out in a manner that salvages the entire preseason and regular season.
