Drew Brees isn't a cheapskate.


Feed your NFL addiction! Come feast on all the news in our updating blog.

A couple of days ago, a website posted a photo of a receipt from a dinner the Saints quarterback ordered at an establishment in Del Mar, Calif. And as the photo above illustrates, Brees tipped $3 on a $74.41 bill. Not quite 20 percent.

But wait, hold everything. Brees took to Twitter on Wednesday to clear up the issue:

I hope all of you who were calling for Brees' head will eat crow and apologize. If anything, Brees has proven that he's generous. It's not like he sat down and made a poor waitress do her job and then stiffed her.

While we here at Laces Out always tip a little bit for a takeout order because we don't know what the etiquette is, we know of several people who leave that area blank. If nobody is bringing you refills on your water and actually putting a plate in front of you, what's the need for a tip?

Good for you, Drew.
