Drew Brees: The Crocodile Hunter.
The Saints quarterback took some time off from preparing for the 2015 season by spending a few days with Bear Grylls. The episode of “Running Wild With Bear Grylls” aired Monday on NBC and Brees’ appearance did not disappoint.
Perhaps the best moment came when Brees literally pounced on and killed a crocodile, which he later ate.

He also jumped out of a helicopter. Because, well, why the hell not?

The Saints likely almost had a heart attack watching Brees perform these stunts, but it probably still wasn’t as bad as what Tom Brady put the Patriots through back in May.
