  • Saints Sign Drew Brees To 2 Years $50 Million

    Drew Brees has agreed to a two-year deal with the New Orleans Saints that is worth $50 million.

    The $25 million per year is the same value as the previous deal he signed with the Saints in 2018. The deal is even more team-friendly than last time, considering the inflation of quarterback salaries since then.

    In the meantime, Brees has also agreed to be paid "year by year" with a series of contracts that guarantee him only one year of salary at a time. The last time he was a free agent in 2018, he also accepted slightly less than market value with a two-year, $50 million contract that included just $27 million guaranteed.

    Since then, Brees has broken Peyton Manning's NFL records for both career passing yards (77,416 and counting) and career passing TDs (547 and counting). And he has actually posted the two best passer ratings of his career (116.3 in 2019 and 115.7 in 2018).

    Brees was playing some of the best football of his career before that, despite the thumb injury. He was named the NFC's Offensive Player of the Month for December, when he threw 15 touchdowns with zero turnovers and completed a NFL-record 29 of 30 passes in a Week 15 win over the Indianapolis Colts.
