Benson was asked about Brees at a press conference announcing that he will become the next owner of the NBA's New Orleans Hornets.
"I talked to Drew Brees this morning personally and told him what was going on... " Benson said. "He's due in next week and we (are) close. You know how those things work. It just takes a little more time, a little patience... We haven't forgotten about him."
