Drew Brees wants to play until he's 45

<p> New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees wants to have an extremely lengthy career.</p> <p> The 36-year-old is hoping to play until he's 45 years old.</p> <p> Brett Favre played until he's 41 years old.</p> <p> “No doubt, there’s no question,” Brees said. “I’m not getting ahead myself, like it’s a pipe dream, at 45. I understand the challenges that come along with that. But why not? If I can stay healthy, and I’m having fun and playing at a high level, why wouldn’t I wanna do that? The biggest challenge is physically, the maintenance, the recovery, the way you train. You gotta hope that you stay healthy, but why not?”</p> <p> Follow me on Twitter: <a href="http://www.twitter.com/RavensInsider">@RavensInsider</a></p> <p> Aaron Wilson covers the Ravens for The Baltimore Sun</p>
