Saints QB Brees calls his contract a 'non-issue'

METAIRIE, La. (AP) Drew Brees had what would have to be an anxious moment for a 38-year-old quarterback entering a contract year.

The New Orleans Saints star nearly became collateral damage when a couple of players got tangled up and tumbled into him during 11-on-11 drills near the end of Thursday's opening practice of training camp.

Quarterbacks aren't supposed to be touched during practice, and Brees was grimacing as he rose to his feet. He went back to the huddle, however, and completed a pass to running back Daniel Lasco on the next snap.
