NFL.com reports San Diego Chargers head coach Marty Schottenheimer said he "absolutely" wants QB Drew Brees (shoulder) back in 2006, even though Brees is going under the knife and is not under contract for next year. Brees traveled to Birmingham, Ala., Tuesday, Jan. 3, to get a second opinion on his injured right shoulder from noted orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews. Schottenheimer said there was "no involvement of the rotator cuff, which is important. When they go in there with the surgery, we'll be able to determine exactly where we are." Chargers' general manager A.J. Smith wouldn't say to what extent Brees' surgery clouds the decision on his future. The Chargers have said that they have the room under the salary cap to once again keep both Brees and QB Philip Rivers.
