Allegedly, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees turned 35 years old earlier this year. But he’s not buying it.

In fact, he insisted that he truly believes he’s capable of playing another 10 years.

“I’m not in the decline like most guys maybe in their mid-30s. In my eyes, I’m not in my mid-30s, I’m 25,” Brees said after the first practice of his 14th NFL training camp Friday.

“I think it’s a mindset,” said Brees, whose rigorous offseason workout routine was chronicled in a cover story by Sports Illustrated this week. “Certainly there are things that come with getting a bit older. A bit more maintenance, a bit more recovery, some of these things. Maybe a little bit different in the way that you train, and I feel like I’ve evolved along with that. But I think so much of it is a mindset.

“If I tell myself I’m 25, I’m 25. And honest to God, that’s my mindset. I could play for another 10 years. And that would be my goal. I mean, I’m taking it one year at a time, but there’s no reason why I couldn’t do that.”
