As Tom Brady nears the end of his career, the 42-year-old quarterback seems genuinely unsure of where he’ll play in 2020. The same cannot be said for Drew Brees, who plans on suiting up for the New Orleans Saints in 2020.
Back in February, Brees announced on Instagram that he would return to the NFL for his 20th season. Despite already saying he would return to the Saints, there were people wondering if he’d consider signing with another team.
Well, the future Hall of Famer put any questions about his future to rest this morning. Brees made it very clear that he’ll be playing for the Saints next season.
“Listen, I have no intention of going anywhere,” Brees said on WEEI’s The Greg Hill Show. “I don’t care what the offer would be or what the situation might be, I am Who Dat Nation for life.”

There isn’t much left for Brees to accomplish. After all, he owns almost every passing record in the NFL.
Brees didn’t show any signs of slowing down this past season, throwing for 2,979 yards and 27 touchdowns. He did miss time due to a thumb injury, but he looked sharp when he returned.
New Orleans hasn’t reached an agreement with Brees up to this point. It does sound like a deal will happen sooner than later.
After suffering heartbreaking losses for three-straight seasons, we’ll see if Drew Brees can finish his career in style.
