  • Drew Brees Played Through Foot, Shoulder Injuries

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees' (foot, shoulder) wife Brittany revealed that the 42-year-old signal-caller was playing through a torn rotator cuff and a torn fascia in his foot. "He's as courageous and as tough a player as I've ever been around," head coach Sean Payton said, via The New Orleans Times-Picayune. Brees' injuries likely played a part in his struggles pushing the ball downfield, and he threw three interceptions in what will be the final game of his storied career in the Divisional Round loss to the Buccaneers. He has yet to make his retirement official, but it's expected to come eventually, especially after playing through other injuries that we didn't know about. If this is the end, Brees will go down in NFL history as one of the greatest to ever play the position.

  • Drew Brees Plans To Retire After Season

    According to Jay Glazer of Fox Sports, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees plans to retire after the season ends. With the Saints are getting ready to take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the Divisional Round of the playoffs on Sunday night, Glazer tweeted, "Today will be Drew Brees' last game in the Superdome" earlier in the day. If the Saints lose to Tampa Bay, it will close the book on a Hall of Fame career for Brees. If the Saints win, they will head to Green Bay to take on the Packers for a chance to go to the Super Bowl. With Brees out of the picture in 2021, there's a chance that the Saints to turn to Taysom Hill as the team's starting quarterback but they could bring in a veteran as several quality signal-callers will be available this offseason, either through free-agency or via trade. Either way, it will be the end of an era for the Saints and the NFL as one of the most prolific quarterbacks in league history hangs them up.

  • Drew Brees A Low-End QB1 Against Buccaneers

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is a low-end QB1 against the Buccaneers this week in the Divisional Round. Brees was decent against the Bears in the wild-card game last week, tossing for 265 yards and two scores. Overall, the QB has been decent overall since returning from broken ribs and a lung injury in Week 15 of the regular season. He has tossed for at least 200 yards in the past four contests dating back to the regular season. The Bucs are in the middle tier against opposing quarterbacks in fantasy, so Brees certainly has some fantasy value this week for this important matchup.

  • Drew Brees Likely To Retire After Season

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is expected to retire after the season, according to people close to him. Brees hasn't officially announced his decision, but it sounds as though this will be his last season. If he does decide to hang up his cleats, he has a contract with NBC waiting for him. If the 2020 season was indeed the 41-year-old's last, he'd finish his Hall of Fame career with 80,358 career passing yards on 10,551 attempts for 571 touchdowns and 243 interceptions in 287 regular season games with the Chargers and Saints. Brees has made the Pro Bowl 13 times in his 20 seasons, including a run of seven straight selections with the Saints from 2008 to 2014. He's led the NFL in passing yards seven times, had the highest completion percentage six times and has led the league in completions six different times. Brees will be a no-doubt first-ballot Hall of Famer and will be hoping his career doesn't come to an end in the wild-card game against the Bears on Sunday. The veteran signal-caller will be a midrange fantasy QB with running back Alvin Kamara and wide receiver Michael Thomas (ankle) back in the fold against Chicago.
