Drew Brees was joking when he said he may come back to play football. Or at least, we hope he was, for the sake of the New Orleans Saints franchise.

No one can deny that Brees was a bonafide Saints legend, and he will go down in history as perhaps the best player in NOLA’s history. Brees gave 15 years to the Saints, some better than others, and he remains one of the most distinguishable faces of the franchise even after hanging up his cleats roughly a year ago.

But make no mistake, this is not a Tom Brady situation. Brees returning to play for the Saints likely won’t happen (like we said, it was *probably* a joke), but if he is truly entertaining the thought, NOLA needs to kindly tell him to stay away from the Saints’ practice facilities.

We love you, Drew, but we don’t want you to come back.

Here are three reasons why a Saints-Brees reunion is a terrible idea.
