Okay, it’s not quite the same as Terrell Owens doing ab crunches during a press conference in his driveway (at his publicist’s direction, of course), but Drew Brees doesn’t appear to be going off quietly into the night. NewOrleans.Football’s Nick Underhill shared a video from Brees’ trainer Todd Durkin on Instagram showing Brees setting a new personal best while pushing a weight sled down and up his driveway, perilously knifing into and out of traffic while making the turn.

These training sessions with Durkin — as well as Brees’ longtime friend and occasional backup Chase Daniel — are routine pieces to the quarterback’s offseason, regardless of whether he’s retiring or not. But Underhill added that Brees is deliberately taking his time in making a decision, while also taking care to remain in top condition should he choose to return for another season.

Of course, Brees’ recent pay cut would mean he plays for little over $1 million in 2021 at the veteran’s minimum. Considering he’s taken pains throughout his career to maximize his earnings as well as those of his former players, and well, it would be tough to see him return after giving up $24 million. But stranger things have happened in the NFL, so stay tuned. Surely it’s a coincidence video of Brees pumping iron is shared by his personal trainer days after Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson was linked to the Saints in trade rumors.
