A petition is circulating that calls for Lee Circle in New Orleans to be renamed Brees Circle in honor of the Black and Gold’s most beloved athlete. A statue of Confederate General Robert E Lee once stood high above the circle where uptown meets downtown. Petition creator Blake Ivey says the idea came to him last April.

Drew Brees heads into tonight’s game against Washington just 201 yards shy of the all-time passing yards record. Brees’ first NFL experience was a 2001 preseason game in Miami, where he says he stared starry eyed up into the rafters at the passing records held by Dan Marino, who then held the all-time passing yards record. He says he never could imagined one day that might be him.

Drew Brees is back in Black and Gold after agreeing to a two year, 50 million dollar contract one day before the start of free agency. The New Orleans legend will reunite with a team that was one play away from the NFC championship and loaded with young talent. Brees says he always planned on returning, but last season’s success made the decision that much easier.
