The odds that Drew Brees would leave New Orleans in free agency were extremely low, but Brees has made it clear, saying “Listen, I have no intention of going anywhere. I don’t care what the offer would be or what the situation might be, I am Who Dat Nation for life,” on The Greg Hill Show Thursday morning.
Brees will start his 20th season in 2020, looking for his second Super Bowl win and to continue stacking up stats in the record books. The Saints signal caller now has 77,416 yards passing (1st all time), 547 touchdown passes (1st all time), 281.5 passing yards per game (1st all time), 67.6 percent completion percentage (1st all time) and a lifetime QB rating of 98.4 (3rd all time). He has seen some decline toward the end of the season recently, but still has remained a top-tier quarterback despite being 41 years old.
The Saints are built to win now and Brees is their best chance, at least for this season. We’ll see what the team does contract-wise, but they aren’t going to let him go until he’s done or they are firmly in rebuild mode, which is likely to happen when Brees hangs up his helmet.
