    As soon as I read this all I immediately thought, 'her and Drew did not get along'. Sad. Wonder did they ever make up before she passed.

    Ah well, move along nothing more to see here..........

    Relations between Brees and his mother were strained at times, with the quarterback asking her to stop using his picture in TV commercials touting her candidacy for a Texas appeals court in 2006.

    Mina Brees said she had not anticipated upsetting her son and sent out replacement commercials omitting mention of her son.

    At the time, Brees called his relationship with his mother “nonexistent,” saying it crumbled six years earlier when he refused to hire her as his agent.

    Very sad that they couldn't make up before she passed away.
