Former Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett remembers receiving a text from New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees last year.

In October 2017, Barrett broke Brees' Big Ten record for career passing touchdowns in a Buckeyes win over Penn State, and he said Brees sent him a congratulatory text that included some quip related to Purdue, Brees' alma mater.



Barrett, who finished his collegiate career with 104 touchdown passes compared to Brees' 90, said he hasn't heard from Brees since signing with the Saints as an undrafted rookie, but it's no matter. With Barrett so focused on learning the Saints' complex offense, he's barely even thinking about the possibility of playing behind the future Hall of Famer.

"I'm trying to take it day by day and do my best and grow as much as I can, and hopefully, in the long run that comes along," he said Saturday (May 12) of learning from Brees and coach Sean Payton.

Barrett is one of three quarterbacks participating in Saints rookie minicamp along with Jesse Ertz from Kansas State and Alejandro Bennifield from Chattanooga. Out of the trio, Barrett is the only one signed a the other two are here on a tryout basis a and on Saturday, he had more opportunities in team drills and looked good, highlighted by two deep completions down the middle to undrafted rookie tight end Deon Yelder.

Once the rest of the team joins the rookies for organized team activities, minicamp and training camp, Barrett will likely have significantly fewer repetitions. Brees will get the most work, and the Saints will surely give Taysom Hill and Tom Savage lots of opportunities to compete for the No. 2 job.

I actually cracked up when I saw a clip of him and he's saying that he has to say a lot more words. Words? Verbiage?

David Carr broke down the verbiage and why the call takes so long. The quarterback has to call out like five responsibilities.......from the O-line to protection and wide receiver patterns. It was very interesting and informative!

Might he be Brees' replacement?
