The long wait is officially over. After a couple months of speculation, veteran QB Drew Brees has announced he’s returning for the 2020 season.
There are plenty of staff members and players excited that Brees is returning to play next season. The Saints have high aspirations for 2020 after a heartbreaking loss to the Vikings in the NFL Wild Card Round of the playoffs last year. But the future is still bright considering the talent on the current roster.
Of all the players excited that Brees is coming back, it comes as no surprise one of the best receivers in the NFL – Michael Thomas – is thrilled that his quarterback is returning. After all, Brees helped the All-Pro receiver haul in 149 catches for 1,725 yards and nine touchdowns.
The Brees-Thomas connection is just about as good as it gets in the NFL. The Saints WR had an awesome reaction following Brees’ announcement on Tuesday morning. Check out Thomas’ reaction below:

Let’s be honest – it’s awesome that Brees is returning to play next season.
The NFL won’t be the same without the veteran passer in the game. Eventually, Brees will hang up his cleats – but there’s still plenty left in the tank for the 41-year-old.
The Saints will once again be a NFC team to watch in 2020.
