J.T. Barrett and Drew Brees are two of the most-accomplished quarterbacks in Big Ten history. The QBs are actually No. 1 and No. 2 all-time, respectively, in total touchdowns.

Now, they're teammates in the NFL, as the New Orleans Saints signed Barrett as an undrafted free agent.

Brees, of course, will not be losing his job to Barrett this year, but he has lost a passing competition to him.

The Ohio State rookie topped Brees today.

It was kind of a wacky competition, but still, props to J.T. for coming out on top.

The Saints are currently in minicamp.

New Orleans opens its 2018 season against Tampa Bay.
