New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees put pen to paper today and celebrated in an unusual way afterwards.

Brees arrived at the club headquarters to take a physical, which is routine, before signing his 5-year, $100 million contract that was announced yesterday causing pandemonium in the Crescent City.

The future Hall of Fame gunslinger arrived not in an expensive suit, but in casual attire.  Brees sported shorts and a t-shirt that had the slogan “#NOLALOVE” on the front, which seemed very appropriate.

After signing his contract, Brees tweeted the following:

Who wants to join me for a celebratory #9 at Jimmy Johns at 4301Veterans Blvd? See you there

Jimmy John’s, for those that don’t know, is a franchise sandwich shop that serves different types of fresh sub-style sandwiches.  Sandwiches are ordered by selecting a number with Brees’ favorite being a #9(insert irony).

The franchise is growing in popularity, mainly due to Brees, and the quarterback opened a franchise on Veterans Blvd. in New Orleans.  Not because it’s Brees, but the sandwiches are quite good.  Of course my choice is usually the #4 Turkey Tom add JJ’s sauce and cheese.
