When the Drew Brees era for the New Orleans Saints ended earlier this offseason, fans wondered just how long it would take for the legendary quarterback to re-emerge. As it turns out, it didn't take that long after all.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson posted a video to his Twitter account on Thursday night, showing him working on offseason passing drills with Brees. Considering the storied career that the former Saints signal-caller had, you can't blame Seahawks fans for hoping that he might pass off some secrets to their quarterback.

From what the video shows, Brees didn't get too involved in the training. He was mainly snapping the ball to Wilson for what the latter calls "Trust Throws." The Seahawks QB would throw the football to a receiver who was obstructed by a gazebo, meaning Wilson had to "trust" where the pass-catcher would be without seeing them. It's not exactly an in-game situation by any means, but it's still fun, nonetheless.

Wilson had another impressive season under center for Seattle in 2020. The 32-year-old hit the 40-touchdown mark for the first time in his career, throwing for 4,212 passing yards along the way. Unfortunately, Wilson's season wasn't enough to help the Seahawks to a deep playoff run. They ended up losing in 30-20 to the Los Angeles Rams in the Wild Card round. Safe to say, Seattle hopes for better results in 2021.

The Seahawks currently have the 9th-best odds to win Super Bowl 56 at +2300, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. While they aren't favorites by any means, having top-10 odds is more than respectable.
