Watch J.T. Barrett Defeat Drew Brees in Throwing Competition

J.T. Barrett, Drew Brees

When the New Orleans Saints signed former Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett to a rookie free agent contract, they probably didn’t expect him to start making future Hall of Fame quarterback Drew Brees look bad so soon.

And yet here we are.

The New Orleans Saints Twitter account posted a video of a quarterback challenge between Brees, Barrett, and fellow quarterbacks Tom Savage and Taysom Hill, as well as a couple of coaches.

The challenge involved throwing a football onto “trampoline”, with more points award for getting the football to actually stay on the apparatus.

While Barrett struggled early, he came through in the clutch, just as his former Ohio State coaches and teammates would have expected him to.
