For Drew Brees, training camp never gets old.

Heck, Brees never gets old.

At least not according to his teammates.

"I think he found the fountain of youth, " safety Vonn Bell said. "He doesn't slow down."

Yeah, there are those who suggest Brees is slowing down, but he begs to differ. (We'll get to that in a minute).

First things first.

Brees began his 19th training camp Friday.

He's camped all over, from California in his days with the Chargers to Mississippi and West Virginia and Metairie in his time with the Saints.

The first day of training camp gets the blood pumping through his 40-year old veins just as much now as it did back in 2001 when his NFL Hall of Fame journey started.



"This is where it all truly begins," Brees said about training camp. "This is where you really start stacking those bricks to build the foundation by which we are going to be able to do great things this year."

How many more training camps does Brees has left in the tank remains to be seen?

Kinnlee Peck, an 8-year old Saints fan from Pensacola, Fla. who was the first fan in line for training camp this season, isn't so sure.

She is a little concerned this could possibly be her last shot at getting an autograph from No. 9 at training camp.

But to let Cam Jordan tell it, Peck has nothing to worry about that.

"Between him and Tom Brady, at this point it's just a battle of attrition, right?" Jordan said. "They are going to play until they are 50 or 55."

Re: No slowing down for Saints' ageless wonder Drew Brees and he knows it

With modern training, conditioning, and medical advances who knows. With The talent they have put around him on both offense AND defense he could play a couple more years. The team they have put together in the last couple years is un-arguably the most talented we have seen in the Payton era.
Even if there is a significant drop off in his play this team should still be competitive with Brees as a game managing Qb.
Its important to get Thomas signed and the oline playing as a healthy unit.
The o-line does its job and Brees will be as good as ever.

I'm just glad Drew found the fountain of youth in New Orleans and not Miami.
