Brees will only worry about extension after end of 2017 season

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees reiterated that he won't be concerned about a prospective contract extension until the end of the 2017 season.

Brees is slated to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the 2018 season, although he's scheduled to be paid through 2020.

"I'm trying to put the (contract) conversation to bed just by saying ... we can worry about it at the end of the year. I think that's what's in the best interest of the team. It's what's in my best interest. It's in the best interest of everybody," Brees said via ESPN's Mike Triplett.

Brees said he wouldn't be upset if the Saints used one of their two first-round picks on a quarterback but noted that he wants the team to select a player that would contribute immediately.

More to come.
