On Friday afternoon, the New Orleans Saints departed Louisiana en route to Philadelphia where they’ll take on the Eagles in temperatures that aren’t expected to get over 25 degrees.

Knowing this, I’m sure Saints quarterback Drew Brees packed heavily for the frigid weather – so heavily in fact that he was screened by TSA officials before the Saints team flight could take off.

Yes, even a former Super Bowl MVP on a chartered flight has to deal with the overly personal TSA.

Meg Farris captured Brees, who was the last arriving player to the tarmac attempting to get on the flight before he was stopped and screened. Brees had his bags searched and went through the metal detector, just like you and I.

Final player…Drew Brees arrives. Gets screened with metal detector like the rest of us. Now the engines can start.

Brees was cleared and was then quickly escorted off to the Saints awaiting United Airlines plane.

Hopefully they didn’t confiscate too much of his NyQuil.
