David Blough trying to continue following in Drew Brees’ footsteps

Pro Football Talk

They both played high school football in Texas. They both played college football at Purdue. They both play quarterback. They both have the initials DB.

Drew Brees measured barely over 6 feet at the 2001 combine and weighed 213. David Blough measured 6-0 3/8 at the East-West Shrine Game and weighed 205.

“That’s why I went to Purdue,” Blough said during a break in his training at the Michael Johnson Performance Center. “Guys like Drew Brees who have come before. I wanted to be the next one at Purdue in that legacy. Now, I have that opportunity to take that next step, and he’s the best of the best, the most professional of the professionals. I think if I can learn from him, he’s the best to learn from. I’ve got a long way to go, and that’s the way I see it. But he’s definitely one to aspire to be like.”

Brees has become a mentor of sorts for Blough, meeting with Blough and communicating with him on multiple occasions. Blough wouldn’t mind that relationship becoming a daily one in the quarterbacks meeting room in New Orleans.

The Saints will need another backup quarterback with Teddy Bridgewater entering free agency.
