It has been several since NBA Top 75 members Chris Paul and Anthony Davis were traded from the New Orleans Pelicans to the Los Angeles Clippers and Los Angeles Lakers. Former New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees wishes both would have stayed in New Orleans.
During a recent interview with Bovada’s Scoop B Talks with host Brandon “Scoop B” Robinson, the future Pro Football Hall of Famer shared that he is happy with Davis and Paul’s success after leaving the Pelicans and Hornets.
“I’m really happy for Anthony Davis. I hate that it wasn’t with the Pelicans; it would’ve been nice to have him here. I hated when CP3 left and that was back in the Hornets days, you know? But bottom line I think those guys were great for the organization and I think that they left a mark in a positive way, and we just have to continue to find ways to build with young talent and veteran leadership and see if we can put together a winning formula.”
Peyton Manning Recently Weighed In Drew Brees Comparison To Russell Wilson
During a recent appearance on the Pat McAfee show, Pro Football Hall of Famer Peyton Manning was asked to share his opinion on Russell Wilson getting hit numerous times last year compared to Drew Brees not getting hit much under Sean Payton.

Drew Brees Was Recently At Broncos Practice
Last month, retired quarterback Drew Brees made an appearance at Denver Broncos practice, according to cbsnews.com.
Per CBS News, there wasn’t any word if Brees had any type of conversation with Russell Wilson, but Wilson did receive some praise from head coach Sean Payton.
“His movement skills have been impressive,” Payton. “His off-schedule plays — every practice, you see an example of one or two. It really forces the receivers to (dial in). If you are not open in the initial route progression and the pocket moves one way, you have to move with it.”
“His location has been really good. I think the last week and a-half or two weeks have been really impressive.”
My confidence doesn’t waver much,” Wilson said. “But I think every day you learn a little bit more. You learn a little bit more about who we are, what we’re trying to do as a team. It’s all coming together. The picture’s all coming together.
“It takes time to paint a beautiful picture sometimes, and we’re doing that, all as one.”
Wilson and the Broncos are looking for to rebound from a 5-12 season during 2022-23 and as for Brees, he is continuing to enjoy life after the NFL.
