Drew Brees drives NYC taxi to raise concussion awareness

Friday June 29th, 2012

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees passed out knowledge on concussions while driving a taxi in New York City.

In a video uploaded Wednesday, Brees surprises passengers when they realize the cab is being driven by a former Super Bowl MVP.

He lobs several trivia questions to the passengers attempting to raise awareness for concussions. Brees asks some tough questions (How many sports-related concussions happen every year in America?) and some softballs (Do concussions only happen in football?).

The quarterback also spoke with SI Video's Maggie Gray earlier this week about concussion awareness, and he also discussed his contract negotiations and the Saints bounty investigation.
