New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees upset with the NFL over player conflicts


When recently asked if the NFL is listening to player dissatisfaction, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees had a few things to say.

“I am not sure. I hope so. I’d say based upon what we’ve seen from the past, probably not.”

All this comes in regard to the multiple bounty suspensions which include players all around the league. Brees, who does believe in ex-Saints, such as Scott Fujita, had this to say about Fujita’s run in with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and line backer Jonathan Vilma’s return to the field,

“I still think it’s appropriate and it needs to be said by guys like myself, Fujita, and others that are close to the situation and maybe have a little bit more knowledge based upon the last couple of years, negotiations during the lockout, and the whole bounty thing. I hope that we’re closer to, obviously, the truth and justice being served. it seems like the longer that this goes, Vilma continues to fight for what’s right and for a fair process which I think is extremely justified. The fact that he was out there practicing today, it kind of puts a smile on everybody’s face knowing what he’s been through and having the opportunity to get him back.”
