drew brees doesnt want kids play football until teens

More and more, we’re seeing football players who are not letting their own sons play the sport.

Drew Brees is among this list, and talked about it on Wednesday. The New Orleans Saints quarterback has three sons — four-year-old Baylen, two-year-old Bowen and one-year-old Callen — and he wants them to wait until they’re TEENS to throw around the pigskin.

Brees explained:

"At a certain age, I think it's appropriate. I think you can be too young to go out there and strap on a helmet. As a parent, you have to know what those risks are, and the protocols that have to take place when things happen. When you get a concussion, you should be out for a certain period of time. You should be taking the baseline test. You go back and take that test again, get cleared by medical professionals before you ever play. For a kid, it should be at least a week or two, if not more."

Well at least he’s not saying “no” entirely!

With how many unnecessary deaths we’re seeing from teens playing football, we wouldn’t be surprised if Brees made his boys wait until their late teens, just to be on the safe side.
