Days away from the NFL Draft, one accomplished quarterback announced his plans for the upcoming year. This season, Drew Brees, one of the most decorated and respected quarterbacks in the NFL, will wear the denim blue of the Wrangler® brand in addition to the black and gold of the New Orleans Saints.
Football favorite Drew Brees is comfortable in Wrangler.
The newest member of the Wrangler team is regarded as one of the best quarterbacks ever to play in the NFL, with a Super Bowl ring, the NFL’s single-season passing record (5,476 yards), and a reputation as a driving force behind the New Orleans Saints and the city of New Orleans since 2006. Brees has shown leadership and unwavering dedication to the sport since a young boy when he led his high school team to a perfect regular-season record and a state championship. The momentum continued as Brees stood out at Purdue University taking the team to a Big Ten Championship and a trip to the Rose Bowl. He was also honored as a two-time Heisman finalist.
"Both on and off the field, Drew has proven himself to be a determined, down-to-earth man that many people look up to and respect," said Craig Errington, Vice President of Wrangler marketing. "His dependability, work ethic and family values make him a natural fit for Wrangler. He epitomizes the core values of our brand, and we look forward to cheering him on during the 2013 season and beyond."
Brees' passion doesn't end when he walks off the field - he injects his strong work ethic and enthusiasm into everything he does, especially with regard to his family and charity, The Brees Dream Foundation. The Foundation's mission is to improve the quality of life for cancer patients as well as providing care, education and opportunities for children and families in need. Since 2003, Brittany and Drew Brees and the Brees Dream Foundation have collectively committed over $17,000,000 to worthy causes globally.
"When I'm off the field I just want to be comfortable," said Brees. "Wrangler jeans help me do just that. I've always admired Wrangler and what the brand stands for, and am honored to be a part of this partnership."
