The Saints have won the NFC South and won more regular season games than any other team the last three seasons. However, New Orleans hasn’t been able to find their way to a Super Bowl during that run, with their last appearance in the big game coming in 2010.

Quarterback Drew Brees has been the centerpiece of the Saints offense, but he isn’t getting any younger, something that the 41-year-old openly admits.

“Hey, at this time, man, I’m on borrowed time,” Brees told reporters. “I’ve got nothing to lose. So I’m turning it loose and letting the chips fall where they may.

“I know that everything happens for a reason, and in most cases, failure is your best teacher,” Brees added. “That’s the approach I’ve always taken, and that’s the approach this team has taken. And I feel like we’ve found a way to garner strength from each one of these moments over these last few years. And it’s only made us better.”

Brees has his top target back in Michael Thomas and the Saints added veteran pass-catcher Emmanuel Sanders in the offseason as well.

The Saints dealt with a brief spat of drama with running back Alvin Kamara this offseason, with it being reported that New Orleans was at one point shopping the three-time Pro Bowler. However, cooler heads prevailed and the Saints are nearing an extension with Kamara, who has recorded 2,408 rushing yards, 2,068 receiving yards and 38 touchdowns through his first three seasons.

The Saints have some added competition within the AFC South, with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers adding former Patriots quarterback Tom Brady in the offseason. He and Brees are No. 1 and 2 on nearly every all-time statistical list and now they’ll do battle for the division crown, starting in Week 1 when they kick off their seasons against each other.

“I’ve got a ton of respect for Tom (Brady) and all that he’s accomplished in his career. I know I’m sure he’s pretty rejuvenated, being down there and having the opportunity with a new team,” Brees said. “And obviously, he’s got a great team around him. A lot of great skill position players and a really good defense as well. So, man, they’re in the division now. We’re both fighting for the same thing.”
