Brees was secretly scheduled to attend as well and reveal the jersey, which has been in West Lafayette since last week. Bad weather scuttled his travel plans, so he instead submitted the video announcement from Peoria, Illinois.

Drew Brees continues to be one of the best guys in the sports world. Everyone talks about Brady and Rodgers, but to me, Brees is one of the Greatest of all time.
