Brees Amazed By Reaction To Takeout Tip

[1]METAIRIE, La. (AP) — Drew Brees says he’s amazed his $3 tip on a $74 takeout order last month has become a talking point on national television and the Internet.

The quarterback says he was in the locker room at Saints headquarters Thursday morning when he noticed a discussion on a network morning show about tipping on takeout orders, referencing a photograph of his takeout receipt that was circulated online.

Brees says he figures the person who initially photographed the receipt did so innocently because he visits the San Diego-area restaurant regularly and poses for photos with staff.

The quarterback says it disappointed him that some portrayed him as cheap — without knowing all the facts — when the image became public.

Brees’ contract with the Saints pays $100 million over five years.
