Drew Brees is sticking with the Saints for the remainder of his career.

During his Tuesday appearance on Hardwick & Richards on XTRA 1360-AM, the 38-year-old quarterback said he has no intention of leaving the team he's spent the last 12 seasons with despite stalled contract talks.

"Hopefully, I know all of that stuff takes care of itself when it's supposed to. I have not approached them about any contract. We just have a great understanding here. Listen, we're going to go through this season and we'll revisit it in the offseason. Right now, I'm in the moment."

The Saints are riding a seven-game winning streak that has put them atop the NFC South after a 0-2 start to the season, which is a favorable moment for a squad that hasn't had a winning season since 2013 when they went 11-5 before falling to the Seahawks in the divisional round of the playoffs.

According to Spotrac, the Saints are estimated to have approximately $30 million in salary cap space for 2018. The numbers aren't ideal for an aging veteran who turns 39 in January, though negotiations can be made.
