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.

George Diaz: Chase Elliott, Jimmie Johnson in desperation drive in Phoenix

  George Diaz: Chase Elliott, Jimmie Johnson in desperation drive in Phoenix A trip to NASCAR's final race near Miami often has involved a coronation and a sip of champagne for Hendrick Motorsports. Riding on the dominance of the No .48 team and the dynamic chemistry between Jimmie Johnson and crew chief Chad Knaus, Johnson has won seven Cup titles under the Hendrick Motorsports banner since 2006.The dynamics in play as the team rides into Phoenix for the penultimate race before the Championship 4 run Nov. 19 at Homestead-Miami Speedway are very different. Johnson and teammate Chase Elliott are still in the playoff mix, but only as long-shot outsiders.

Brees did make it clear that his desire is to remain in New Orleans . “ I feel like we’ve got a great opportunity ahead of us and I don ’ t plan on leaving New Orleans ever ,” Brees said.

Saints’ Brees on contract situation : ‘ I ’m not worrying about it one shred’. Drew Brees has better things to think about while going through offseason workouts with the New Orleans Saints than his long-term future with the team.

"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. If the organization hopes to maintain its momentum, they'll need their franchise quarterback under center. But at what cost?

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.
