Drew Brees Sends Over 170 Christmas Gifts for a Record Reason
Just in time for Christmas, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees has sent a commemorative football to every player and coach that helped him set the NFL’s career passing record.
That's about 175 balls that went out to Brees' current, and former teammates, as well as assistant coaches. It reportedly wasn't just a football, the gift package also included a signed letter from Brees. Maybe most impressively, each ball was custom to the player or coach. Aaron Stecker posted his online:
Even former Saints fullback Mike Karney, who only caught two of Brees' career touchdowns (both in a single game in 2006) received a package from Brees.
New Orleans travels to Carolina for a Monday night match-up against the Panthers, that has serious playoff implications for both teams.
