Saints’ Brees nominated for another ESPY

Drew Brees has been nominated for the “Best Record-Breaking Performance” at the 2013 ESPYS, an award he won last year, ESPN announced.

Brees received the ESPY nomination for breaking Johnny Unitas’ record of consecutive games with a TD pass last season and then extended the streak to 54 games.

Fans can vote online at www.espn.com/espys. The ESPYs will be televised live Wednesday, July 17, at 8 p.m. CT on ESPN from Los Angeles.

Brees won the “Best Record-Breaking Performance” ESPY last year for breaking Dan Marino’s record for most passing yards in a season. He won three ESPYs in 2011 — for Best Male Athlete, Best Championship Performance and Best NFL Player.
