As quarterback Drew Bryce’s record-setting career declines, the New Orleans Saints could be in line to find a potential successor in this week’s NFL Draft.
New Orleans general manager Mickey Lumis, however, said the draft did not change the title of his mentality.
“I think at any time, regardless of your quarterback situation, you’ll have the opportunity to get a quality quarterback prospect, you want to take advantage of that,” Loomis said Wednesday.
“For us, it didn’t come right. We didn’t play a match where we really liked it with our expectations. So I think this year is exactly the same as our approach.”
The 41-year-old Brie agreed to a two-year, চুক্ত 50 million contract to return to New Orleans but said in the past that he was taking his career at once.
Asked about the possibility of making QB, Lumis said:
– New Orleans Saints (7 cents) April 22, 2020
The New York Post reported earlier this month that Bryce would join NBC as a broadcaster after retiring, so the Saints may be inclined to opt for quarterbacks.
New Orleans also lost Teddy Bridgewater in free agency, leaving Tasty Hill as the only other quarterback on the roster after Bryce signed a backup with the Carolina Panthers.
The Saints own five picks in this year’s draft, including a 24-year overall selection
“Look, if there’s someone we really like at the time we’re going and can have a vision for him, we’re not afraid to pull that trigger,” Loomis said.
Brie will enter his 20th NFL season in 2020 and with his 15th Saints.
He led New Orleans to a Super Bowl title in 2009 and has since led the NFL’s all-time lead (,,6767) across the yard (77,414) and touchdown throws (577).
