Saints Expected To Use High Draft Pick On Quarterback 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sun Nov 30, 2014 8:14 pm

The New Orleans Saints are beginning to consider the future of the quarterback position without Drew Brees and could use a high pick on one in this year's draft.

"They believe they can see the finish line here," NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported on NFL Gameday Morning. "My expectation from talking to several sources involved in the situation is that the Saints will draft a quarterback highly this year.

"In fact, they wish they had done this in previous years, mainly because, as you mentioned, Drew Brees is 35 years old, he's not as big as Tom Brady or Peyton Manning, and they've seen some arm strength issues that have cropped up in the last several games, throwing crucial interceptions -- the kind which we never see from Drew Brees. They're starting to wonder what is next at this position."
