NEW ORLEANS -- Drew Brees keeps insisting that he isn't worried about a contract extension, even though he is heading into the final<a href="http://www.officialnflapparelshop.com/nfl-jerseys-minnesota-vikings-c-1_277.html"> Minnesota-Vikings Authentic Jersey</a>  year of his current deal.

And the 38-year-old quarterback also understands that the New Orleans Saints need to be "prepared" for a future without him at some point.

But Brees isn't ready to recommend that they use one of their two first-round draft picks on his successor just yet.

"I'm trying to put the [contract] conversation to bed just by saying ... we can worry about it at the end of the year. I think that's what's in the best interest of the team. It's what's in my best interest. It's in the best interest of everybody," said Brees, who has also insisted many times that it wouldn't change his mindset if the team used a high draft pick on a quarterback.

However, when Brees was asked whether he would draft a quarterback if he were the general manager of a team with a veteran starter like himself, he said, "The flip side is if I'm gonna start and that quarterback sits, well that's not helping our team right now [to draft a QB]. So I want somebody that's gonna help our team right now. That's the only difference."

"Listen, when I leave here I want this organization to be successful, whenever that is. So I want them to be prepared for that. They need to be thinking about that. But I don't want to make it seem like this is my farewell tour. That's not the way I view it. I'm just trying to stress the sense of urgency here," said Brees, who was speaking at a community event in New Orleans, in which he joined Habitat for Humanity and Marriott to build a home for a local family.

"We're so focused on this year, just being in the moment, not thinking about anything beyond this and taking every other year as it <a href="http://www.officialvikingshop.com/shop-by-players-michael-griffin-jersey-c-2_55.html"> Michael Griffin Youth Jersey</a> comes. But also we're building something here -- we are building something. I feel like we have a window of opportunity."

Brees reiterated that he believes he is capable of playing until he is 45 years old -- insisting that he was the first one to make that claim before it became a popular topic recently with Tom Brady. (Both quarterbacks have made similar comments for the past several years, though Brees did talk at length about it in the summer of 2014.)

"For the record, I was the first to say that I could play till I was 45, and that was three years ago prior to training camp. Am I right?" Brees said. "I said it just to make the point that I feel great and I love my routine, and every offseason I evaluate where I'm at, I assess what I need to do to get better, the areas I think I can tweak, things I might want to experiment with. There's more and more information we're able to get as far as diet and nutrition and training habits, recovery, all those things. ... And I feel like I can play till 45 if I wanted to do that.

"Now I want to go out on my terms. I might play till I'm 45, but I'm not gonna sit here and sell you something that I don't know to be the case. I just want to play at a high level. I want to help us win a championship.'

Brees also put on his GM hat when he was asked to<a href="http://www.officialvikingssale.com/shop-by-players-brandon-fusco-jersey-c-2_34.html">http://www.officialvikingssale.com/shop-by-players-brandon-fusco-jersey-c-2_34.html</a>  assess the Saints' trade of receiver Brandin Cooks, who had more than 1,100 receiving yards in each of the past two years.

Brees said he "hates to lose" guys like Cooks and that, "I love Brandin." But he also said he understands the reasoning behind moves like that and the 2015 trade of Jimmy Graham, as the Saints feel like they can use assets to help the defense and offensive line.

"I was aware that there were offers out there for [Cooks], and that that was a possibility," Brees said. "There's a value that's given to a player based on how the rest of the league views you, and if all of a sudden that value gets to a [certain] point ... well, then moves are made.

"Going back to the Jimmy Graham trade, I hate to <a href="http://www.authenticraiderssale.com/shop-by-players-jack-tatum-jersey-c-2_38.html">http://www.authenticraiderssale.com/shop-by-players-jack-tatum-jersey-c-2_38.html</a> lose Jimmy, but what did we get out of that? Well, we got Max Unger, and I love Max Unger, and I think he's going to be a mainstay on our offensive line and a leader for that group for a long time, and [we got] a first-round pick out of that deal.

"So while I'd love to keep all of my toys, all of my guys, I also understand that this is the nature of the business and how you finagle things to go out and acquire more talent."

The guard has changed in Bassmaster.

The young are in charge, and the old stars are fading.

It seems strange to call people like Kevin VanDam and Mike Iaconelli old. They're young in terms of age, but they are grizzled veterans<a href="http://www.authenticsteelerssale.com/shop-by-players-robert-golden-jersey-c-2_68.html">Robert Golden Womens Jersey</a>  in the downward arcs of their career trajectories.

Iaconelli, who won the Bassmaster Classic 14 years ago, made the top five of the Bassmaster Classic at Lake Conroe. Had he won, he said he would have announced his retirement from the weigh-in stage. He almost did anyway, but he said he "chickened out."

I wondered if he were joking when he said that at the Classic's final news conference, but he said it privately to a senior Bassmaster writer, as well.

In 2005, when I became outdoors editor of this newspaper, the first tournament I covered was a Bassmaster Elite 50 tournament at Lake Dardanelle. The E50s predated the Elite Series, which is considered the sport's modern era. At that time, Iaconelli was the most exciting and most controversial angler in the history of the sport. He's from Philadelphia, a fast-talking, hyper-emotional, temperamental, often profane breakdancer, skateboarder and graffiti artist with tattoos on much of his body.

During that tournament I wrote that depending on one's age, Iaconelli was either the best or worst thing to ever happen to professional fishing. "He is neither," I wrote. "He is merely the latest big thing."

He hasn't been for awhile, but he has aged gracefully and is now one of the sport's elder statesmen. He is still the most compelling interview and the most generous and accommodating to fans and media, but he's ready to move on to the next phase of his life.

VanDam, not so much. He missed the Classic two <a href="http://www.authenticsteelersshop.com/shop-by-players-lynn-swann-jersey-c-2_31.html">Lynn Swann Womens Jersey</a> years ago, which seemed unthinkable. He no longer instills the fear and awe that he did in 2013-14 when he won his third and fourth Classics back to back, and it eats at him.

During the final weigh-in Sunday at Houston's Minute Maid Park, VanDam sounded fragile and vulnerable as he talked about how much he still wants to win, and how important the competition is to him.

"It sounds like he's trying to convince himself," I said to another media member.

Another thing. People call him by his name again, VanDam. He's not "KVD" anymore.

VanDam won four Classics and seven Angler-of-The-Year titles because he is an exceptional fisherman, but what set him apart from everyone else was his intensity and single-minded will to win.

If your intensity slips just a little in any vocation, you're in the pack and not in front of it. A lot of hungry young wolves are ready to take your place. VanDam -- KVD -- is still the one to beat because he is the greatest angler of our time, but there's a lot more greatness behind him than in front of him.

Jordan Lee, 25, won the Classic on Sunday. One event doesn't define a trend or a movement, but Lee has already competed in three Classics. He has finished fifth and first.

In 41 tournaments, he's finished 14 times in the top 10, 20 times in the top 20 and 26 times in the top 30. He's finished in the money 33 times. That <a href="http://www.coltsshopauthentic.com/shop-by-players-15-phillip-dorsett-jersey-c-1_6.html">http://www.coltsshopauthentic.com/shop-by-players-15-phillip-dorsett-jersey-c-1_6.html</a> is the definition of consistency.

In just four years on the Elite Series Tour, James Elam, 31, of Tulsa, has been in two Classics. He finished fourth at Lake Conroe.

It's also noteworthy that Lee and Elam came up through the Bassmaster College Series.

The college series will be an increasingly prominent pipeline for young anglers to reach the professional ranks because it provides the structure and discipline that's necessary for success in the pros. It also provides equipment that many college students can't afford on their own.

Bradley Roy, 26, finished seventh at Lake Conroe in his first Classic. Roy graduated from high school a semester early in 2009 so he could fish a Bassmaster Southern Open tournament in early 2010. He qualified for the Elite Series and was the 2010 Elite Series Rookie of the Year. He's also one of most social media savvy anglers in the sport.

Sports fans don't take well to change. I cried when Bob Lilly, Chuck Howley and Lee Roy Jordan retired from the Dallas Cowboys. Find them <a href="http://www.officialchargesshop.com/shop-by-players-hunter-henry-jersey-c-1_23.html">http://www.officialchargesshop.com/shop-by-players-hunter-henry-jersey-c-1_23.html</a> on YouTube if you don't know they are. They broke my pre-teen, blue star loving heart.

New stars replaced them that were as much or more fun to watch.

A new generation has taken over the Bassmaster Elite Series. Embrace them. Enjoy them. Someday, one of them -- maybe Jordan Lee -- will accomplish as much or more than KVD.

The 2016 NFL season didn’t go as planned<a href="http://www.authenticcowboysstore.com/shop-by-players-jack-crawford-jersey-c-2_65.html">Jack Crawford Authentic Jersey</a>  for the Buffalo Bills. After finishing 8-8 in 2015 under then first-year coach Rex Ryan, the Bills were pegged as a team set to make noise with an improved defense and a more experienced quarterback in Tyrod Taylor.

Unfortunately, Buffalo regressed in 2016, finishing the campaign with a 7-9 record. One reason for the Bills’ failed season was a rash of injuries stunting the team’s potential.

Buffalo’s first two selections from their 2016 NFL<a href="http://www.authenticnflraidersshop.com/shop-by-players-mario-edwards-jr-jersey-c-2_60.html">Mario Edwards Jr Authentic Jersey</a>  draft class, linebackers Shaq Lawson and Reggie Ragland, both missed significant time, which severely impacted the Bills’ defense as the two rookies were expected to contribute immediately and have a major impact.

Heading into 2017, both players will be fully healthy and ready to impress the new coaching staff led by Sean McDermott. However, according to Bleacher Report NFL Analyst Sean Tomlinson, it’s Lawson who is expected to be the team’s breakout star in coach McDermott’s aggressive 4-3 defensive front.

McDermott’s defense relies on generating pressure with the front four while playing zone coverage on the back end. Buffalo’s defensive line is the team’s strength, with two star defensive tackles in Marcell Dareus and Kyle Williams, and a defensive end who has a pair of 10 sack seasons under his belt in Jerry Hughes. Now, Lawson<a href="http://www.authenticraiderssale.com/shop-by-players-fred-biletnikoff-jersey-c-2_35.html">http://www.authenticraiderssale.com/shop-by-players-fred-biletnikoff-jersey-c-2_35.html</a>  is expected to make the transition back to defensive end where he became such a force as in college.

During his time at Clemson, Lawson racked up 123 tackles, 45.5 tackles-for-loss and 20 sacks in 37 games. Throughout his career, Lawson was a part of a dominant defensive front that boasted 2016 NFL sack leader Vic Beasley and other highly regarded Tigers’ draft picks such as defensive tackle Grady Jarrett, linebacker Stephone Anthony and defensive end Kevin Dodd.

With the Bills hosting a similar set of star power<a href="http://www.authenticsaintsshop.com/shop-by-players-nate-stupar-jersey-c-1_34.html">http://www.authenticsaintsshop.com/shop-by-players-nate-stupar-jersey-c-1_34.html</a>  along the defensive line in Marcell Dareus, Kyle Williams and Jerry Hughes, Lawson will have the surrounding talent to excel in his sophomore campaign — just like he did at Clemson.

Gerald Hodges is currently a <a href="http://www.authentic49ersshop.com/shop-by-players-carlos-hyde-jersey-c-1_11.html">Carlos Hyde Womens Jersey</a> free agent after spending the last two seasons with the San Francisco 49ers. He was able to have his best season in 2016, posting 83 tackles, three sacks and two interceptions.

So would Hodges, who can play inside or outside linebacker, be a good fit for the Green Bay Packers?

Bleacher Report的Gary Davenport发布了<a href="http://www.authenticbillsstore.com/shop-by-players-thurman-thomas-jersey-c-1_50.html"> Thurman Thomas Womens Jersey </a> 他的名单每个团队应该追求的一个讨价还价的玩家,他相信包装工应该在Hodges之后。下面来看看达文波特对于包装工签约前49er的机会。

达文波特还表示,包装工人可能会选择一名线卫,而不是签署霍奇斯。汤普森通常会像霍奇斯这样的人,但是<a href="http://www.authenticcowboyssale.com/shop-by-players-chaz-green-jersey-c-2_32.html"> http:// www。 authenticcowboyssale.com/shop-by-players-chaz-green-jersey-c-2_32.html </a> 包装人员相信,瑞恩和马丁内斯将会变得更好,如果一个像TJ瓦特这样的人在草稿中可以使用包装工,他们很可能会选择他,而不是以便宜的方式带入霍奇斯。

Gary Davenport of Bleacher Report released <a href="http://www.authenticbillsstore.com/shop-by-players-thurman-thomas-jersey-c-1_50.html">Thurman Thomas Womens Jersey</a> his list of the one bargain player each team should pursue and the he believes the Packers should go after Hodges. Here's a look at what Davenport had to say about the Packers chances of signing the former 49er.

The Packers are now in the offseason and there’s a lot<a href="http://www.authenticbroncosshop.com/shop-by-players-steve-atwater-jersey-c-1_21.html">http://www.authenticbroncosshop.com/shop-by-players-steve-atwater-jersey-c-1_21.html</a>  of work to be done to get ready for next season.

Davenport also said that the Packers will likely draft a linebacker and not sign Hodges. Thompson normally goes after guys like Hodges, but the <a href="http://www.authenticcowboyssale.com/shop-by-players-chaz-green-jersey-c-2_32.html">http://www.authenticcowboyssale.com/shop-by-players-chaz-green-jersey-c-2_32.html</a> Packers believe Ryan and Martinez will get better and if a guy like T.J. Watt is available for the Packers in the draft, they will likely select him than bring in Hodges on the cheap.
