The second season of Mark Ingram and Cameron Jordan’s “Truss Levelz” podcast from the Players’ Tribune is starting off with a bang, and their biggest guest yet: Drew Brees, their former New Orleans Saints teammate.

Ingram welcomed “Drew Breezy” to their show, which you can listen to here.

“I’ve always wanted to do that,” Brees laughed. “I appreciate it. Finally, I get my chance.”

Last season’s guests included Alvin Kamara, Demario Davis, and opponents like Mike Evans, and that familiarity helps Ingram and Jordan casually guide surprisingly wide-ranging discussions. Brees spoke at length on his background in Texas high school football culture and his experience as a college recruit, and how that differed for him a generation or two removed from Ingram and Jordan’s own paths to the NFL.

Of course they also got some digs in at Brees’ beloved Jimmy John’s sandwiches, and reflected on locker room tournaments of Super Smash Bros. The Saints have enjoyed very tight bonds of friendship in recent years, and it’s because of the relationships Brees was able to cultivate with teammates like Ingram and Jordan.

It’s also easy to see how Brees could find success in broadcasting; his energy and expertise of the game shines in this interview, and it should serve him well calling Notre Dame football games for NBC Sports later this year. If he’s as comfortable in that role as he was chopping it up with Jordan and Ingram, he’ll do well. There’s a chance he could call the next Super Bowl in the Superdome, but that’s years away.
