Is Brees bitter about losing his record? Can he take it back this year with TE Jimmy Graham back in the fold and exciting rookie WR Brandin Cooks on the roster?
The 35-year-old said on Friday that he would like to play football for 10 more years, via NFL.com's Albert Breer:
In what may have been an odd coincidence, Brees was randomly drug tested over the weekend:
At least the veteran quarterback was able to get a good laugh out of the timing.
The Cincinnati Bengals and quarterback Andy Dalton have discussed a contract extension this offseason, with Dalton due to become a free agent after the upcoming campaign.
However, re-signing Dalton isn't something all Bengals fans are on board with—take a look at a couple of signs fans hung near the team's training camp.
Here is what the two signs say, in case you have a tough time reading them:
Of course, these signs came only a few days after Bengals owner Mike Brown made headlines while talking about the extension talks.
He hits. He runs. He snaps ankles like Slim Jims.
Harrison went 4-for-6 on the night against the Colorado Rockies, hitting an RBI single, blasting a solo home run and putting on a base-stealing exposition that defied possibility.
The stolen bags came in the sixth inning after Harrison over-slid second base with Gregory Polanco at the plate. Carrying too much momentum into the slide, the 27-year-old right fielder found himself in a rundown between second and third.
The franchise officially hired the former Laker and 2007-08 Coach of the Year Saturday to replace Mike D'Antoni, per ESPN Los Angeles' Ramona Shelburne. Shortly after news of Scott's arrival broke, Kobe Bryant reached out to his new partner in crime and received the head coach treatment right away: "He [Bryant] told me he was working out with Wesley [Johnson] and Nick [Young]," Scott said, via Shelburne. "I told them that sounded great, but 'they better be ready to play some defense.'"
"What is this 'defense' thing that you speak of?" Bryant asked promptly.
OK, fine. That didn't happen. But it might as well have.
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones loves him some Johnny Manziel. He's made no secret of his admiration. So when the Cowboys didn't take their chance to grab the Heisman-winning quarterback at No. 16 overall in May's draft, many at Radio City Music Hall were shocked.
On Sunday, Jones revealed to NFL Network (via Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram) just how close he was to rocking the football world:
The Cowboys selected Notre Dame offensive tackle Zack Martin instead. Manziel would later fall to No. 22, where the Cleveland Browns executed a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles to move up and land the former Texas A&M star. He enters Browns training camp in a position battle with veteran Brian Hoyer for the starting quarterback job.
Even though Hoyer remains the favorite in Cleveland, there was no question who'd be under center in Dallas. Tony Romo is in just the second year of a six-year, $108 million contract. The structure of his contract makes it virtually impossible for the Cowboys to move on until at least the 2016 season—and that's assuming there is no restructuring of the deal.
The San Francisco Giants-Los Angeles Dodgers rivalry is as heated as ever. However, one man proved it's actually possible to openly support both teams.
During Sunday night's game at AT&T Park, a fan was spotted wearing a T-shirt showing allegiance to both sides.
This might not go over well with the fans of these respective teams.
It's no secret Zach LaVine has hops, but this is getting ridiculous.

Everyone knows the first rule of Denver Broncos training camp: Do not tackle Peyton Manning.
Try telling that to Peyton's three-year-old son, Marshall Williams Manning. The tackling machine sacked the legendary signal-caller on Day 4 of Broncos practice.
Peyton didn't seem to mind.
