Drew Brees, wife pledge $5 million to state during COVID-19 outbreak

METAIRIE, La. - Drew Brees and his wife, Brittany, announced a $5 million commitment to the state of Louisiana in 2020 to help "our communities get through this tough time".

"Let's all do our part, maintain hope, and get through this together", Brees said.

Drew Brees is an incredible football player, the greatest New Orleans Saint of all time, but he's a better human being. Most of those efforts have focused on improving learning and recreational opportunities for children as well as health and wellness for children and seniors. However, he instead changed his mind and signed a 2-year, $50 million deal with the New Orleans Saints to make another couple of run at a second Super Bowl title.

According to Brees' Instagram account, they will be donating $5,000,000 to the state of Louisiana. Brees is doing everything in his power to help children, seniors, and families in need to get through this situation. He's a beloved son in Louisiana.

Brees played a big part in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina and he is proving once again when his community needs someone to step up, he is ready. "And yet, my heart, my soul, the Lord is telling me that this is our calling, '" Brees told Sports Spectrum.

Biden: We've had enough debates, my focus is on coronavirus crisis
Biden holds a significant delegate lead over rival Bernie Sanders , but Sanders has not signaled that he plans to withdraw. Biden , quite notably, became vice president of the United States under President Obama when he left the Senate in 2009.

I know it wasn't his ideal scenario when he originally signed but, man, @drewbrees has been so flawless for New Orleans and Louisiana.

It's an admirable gesture for a player who has put down roots in New Orleans, since arriving in 2006. At least 83 people have died from the virus.

In his letter to Trump, Edwards included a chart that showed Louisiana had surpassed NY - by far the hardest-hit state during the outbreak - in terms of the growth in new coronavirus cases.

In other good news, Sean Payton, the longtime Saints coach, says he's feeling better after testing positive for cornavirus last week.
