In news first reported by Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network on Tuesday morning, the New Orleans Saints have agreed to a 2-Yr contract extension with quarterback Drew Brees.
Details of the new deal have not yet been released, but it's said to be roughly $50 million dollars over two years according to Rapoport. The contract insures that Brees will return for his 20th NFL season, 15th with New Orleans.
The 41-Yr old Brees missed five games with a thumb injury in 2019 but returned sharp at midseason. Despite the missed time, he threw for 2,979 yards with 27 touchdowns and just 4 interceptions while leading the NFL in completion percentage.
