And we haven’t gotten into free agency long enough to really know how these guys view me, and we’ll just handle it as it comes.

“There’s no denying that I loved my time in New Orleans. I love Coach [Sean] Payton. I love Pete Carmichael and Joe [Lombardi], the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach that I’ve worked with, the special teams. It has been an incredible experience for me. The fan base. I have loved every second of my time there. So do I want to leave? The fact of the matter is no, I don’t. But as you look at free agency, you have to find the right opportunity for you.

“You have to find the situation to take care of your family. Jy weet, I want to play quarterback in this league, and if New Orleans don’t view me that way, wel, then I have to leave. So that’s really where we’re at.”
