PLAYERS: Drew Brees
TEAMS: New Orleans Saints
Atlanta-falcons-new
Former Packers cornerback and Pro Football Hall of Famer Herb Adderley isn't pleased with New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees. Adderley, 73, in a SiriusXM radio interview, was asked Monday about comments that Brees had previously made about the reason behind the financial struggles of some former NFL players. The radio show's host, Chris Russo, read this Brees quote from the 2011 NFL labor negotiations: "There are some guys out there who have made bad business decisions, they took their pensions early, because they never went out and got a job. They've had a couple of divorces and are making payments to this place and that place, and that's why they don't have money. They're coming to us to basically say please make up for my bad judgment." Adderley didn't take kindly to that point of view. "Drew Brees is misinformed," Adderley said. "He had no idea what was going on as far as why. He never came to any of the guys and asked Well why did you have to take an early pension?' He just made up his mind about why some guys were in bad shape financially, and he just came out and made statements like that. "In my mind, Drew Brees is one of the greediest guys and misinformed guys in the NFL today. Last year, he held out because he wanted more money. The guy's already made millions and millions of dollars, but he's going to hold out for more money, and then he comes down on the retired guys for just wanting a few more dollars for the time that the cornerstones we put in the league. "You know, the NFL network just put out a banquet, the 100 greatest players; I was on that list, No. 64 on that list. The guys deserves something, but Brees came down so tough on us. And none of us are fans of Brees because of him being misinformed. I needed the money. I need to put my daughter through school, and she ended up being a very successful dentist at the particular time in Washington, D.C. If I don't do that, she don't end up going to college. I think he'll change his mind when he hears what guys needed the money for." Follow Paul Imig on Twitter.
