Loomis: Saints not interested in trading Brees

The New Orleans Saints have been very active in the offseason with trades and signing free agents, but there's one player that's not going anywhere.

Saints general manager Mickey Loomis told USA Today Monday that quarterback Drew Brees is not on the trading block.

“Anybody who thinks we're trading Drew Brees, that's just not true,” Loomis told USA Today.

It's no surprise that the Saints aren't looking to move Brees, but the quarterback's age (36) and slight drop in production in 2014 have brought some speculation about his future with the team.

Brees will have to adjust to the loss of his top target, tight end Jimmy Graham, who was traded to the Seattle Seahawks earlier this month.

The Saints did add Buffalo Bills running back C.J. Spiller, a player who should bring a versatile weapon to the team's backfield.

The Saints have the No. 13 and No. 31 picks in the NFL Draft.
