I didn稚 know we were privy to any other investments he may have.
I always hear about him and politics. He痴 stated interest in it but hasn稚 said anything about it being on a local level.
In addition to owning several Jimmy John's, Brees is also co-owner of the Walk-on restaurant chain. He is also sole owner of the lifestyle apparel company, NINE. He is also in partnership with the owner of Dunkin Donuts on 69 stores opening in New Orleans, Shreveport, Baton Rouge, Monroe and Alexandria. He is also a partner in Happy's Irish Pub. There are other ventures, as well.

He is adding more to his portfolio each off-season.

Not necessarily. If it allows you to hold on to more of your wealth in lieu of paying taxes to the Beltway Boys, makes a modest profit, then you can later sell when the Socialist Democrats aren't in power in vampire-mode...

Look Drew Brees' previous contract, plus the cache he has with his NFL star power allowed him into the next club level where he can visit with guys like Berkshire Hathaway's Warren Buffet...

The criticism I have right now for the Brees contract is that the Mickster should have seen Brees passing numbers more than a year ago and had foresight to make sure Brees was under contract when he passed Manning...

That would also have allowed the Saints to then take those cap savings and gotten us an elite Nose Tackle, taken Zeitler over Warford and/or another high-level LBer...

Drafts pretty much sucked balls until Jeff Ireland showed up - then things started improving in the personnel front...
