Drew Brees, Saints agree to two-year, $50 million deal

Drew Brees agrees to 2-yr/$50 million deal to remain in New Orleans

NEW ORLEANS, La. (WLOX) - There was never any doubt we wouldn’t see number nine back in the “Black and Gold” after posting to Instagram a month ago with the caption, “Let’s make another run at it!”

On Tuesday, Drew Brees and the Saints agreed to a two-year, 50 million dollar contract to remain in the city he’s called home for 14 of his 19-year NFL career.

The deal is the same one, in terms of value, that Brees signed back in 2018 at 25 million per season, but with the inflation of quarterback salaries since then, it’s a discount for the Saints to continue to build for another Super Bowl run. The 41-year-old signal-caller and soon-to-be Hall-of-Famer has established himself as one of the greatest of all-time as the leagues’ passing leader in yards, touchdowns, completion and a number of other records.
