quarterback Drew Brees has reportedly agreed to join a high-profile list of plaintiffs if the NFL’s players choose to file an antitrust suit against the league. Several media outlets, , have reported that Brees will join Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and Patriots guard Logan Mankins as named plaintiffs in the class-action suit, if it comes to that. There would be nine named plaintiffs, according to ESPN.
