New Orleans Saints Quarterback Drew Brees has been with the team now for 12 seasons. His contract will expire in March as NFL free agency approaches. Saints GM Mickey Loomis says there’s no worry about getting Brees resigned in the Saints camp.
"Look, he's been our quarterback for a long time and been a great thing, a great thing for our city, great thing obviously for our team and I'm anticipating he's going to continue that."

There was no happy ending in Los Angeles for the Saints, who had their eight-game winning streak snapped by the up and coming Rams. New Orleans had trouble getting its offense going and the defense missed its top two cornerbacks, who are injured. Coach Sean Payton says LA was the better team in the 26-20 win.
