Former New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees has dismissed the speculation that he will be returning to the NFL to fill in for current Saints QB Jameis Winston, who is confirmed to be out for the season.

“Let me check,” said Brees during NBC’s Sunday Night Football broadcast. “I’ll be here Saturday to call the Notre Dame-Navy game and I’ll be here Sunday.”

After putting the speculation to rest, the 42-year-old expressed his admiration for backup QB Trevor Siemian, whom Brees had played with during his playing days. Siemian filled in for the Super Bowl XLIV MVP when he was injured last season.

“I think he’s going to do well,” Brees said on the NBC broadcast. “That’s exactly why he [coach Sean Payton] brought him in last year when I got hurt. He’s a cerebral guy who can pick up the system quickly. He can execute it. The bottom line is he has two really good running backs and a great defense. He’ll play within the system and I think Sean Payton has a lot of confidence in him.”

The Saints will be up against the Atlanta Falcons at Caesars Superdome for Week 9.
