Super Bowl 50 will honor New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees and other past MVP winners on Sunday, and the group will then gather to watch the game between the Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos together.

Brees mentioned the recognition while talking to ESPN Radio's "Russillo & Kanell" show Friday. He said the past winners, about 42 in all, will participate in a pre-game ceremony and will then go to stadium suite box for the game.

"I don't usually do that," Brees said on the radio show. "But this is one I want to see."

Brees has a passing interest in the game with the Saints competing against the Carolina Panthers twice as members of the NFC South Division. He won MVP honors in the 2009 Super Bowl against Peyton Manning the Indianapolis Colts.

Manning is now playing in his fourth Super Bowl as the starting quarterback for the Broncos.

Brees, 37, who is in the final year of his contract with the Saints, told ESPN that he plans to keep talks about his new contract negotiations private, but he did tell the sports network that no talks about an extension have taken place.

Last month, New Orleans Saints general manager Mickey Loomis told the New Orleans Times-Picayune that he expects Brees to stay with the team, but he also declined to give any details about a possible deal. Brees' contract, which is expected to be a $30 million hit against the team's salary cap, could be reduced if the quarterback signs an extension.

"I know this: Drew's going to be our quarterback," Loomis told the newspaper. "We'll figure out how we're going to handle the contract, whether it stays the same and just remains right in place, or whether we do something different. That's all part of what we've got to figure out in the coming weeks."
