Drew Brees has a sense of humor
But the Super Bowl MVP busted his hump to step up to the podium and thank the audience at Harrah's-Atlantic City, club executives Ron Jaworski and Ray Didinger, and the other award winners.
Including Nebraska defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, the Chuck Bednarik Award honoree.
"I'm not even going to try to pronounce his first name," Brees said. "But I am going to be nice to him. He's going to be chasing after me pretty soon."
Jaworski asked the audience to remember the late Tom Brookshier, who always attended the dinner. Jaws applauded the work of Bob Clark, retiring after 35 years of service to the club.
