Saints | Drew Brees retiring after Super Bowl win?

Fri, 17 Aug 2018 10:21:16 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees will retire after this season if the Saints win the Super Bowl, former teammate Reggie Bush said in an on-camera interview released Friday, Aug. 17. If not, Bush said Brees will keep playing.

Fantasy Tip: Brees will turn 40 in January, and even though his passing yards (4,334) and TDs (23) hit 12-year lows last season, other metrics -- including an NFL-record 72.0 completion percentage and a league-leading 8.1 yards-per-attempt average -- show the QB is still going strong. He's a solid candidate to bounce back into mid-level QB1 territory, even if it does prove to be his final season.

Saints | Meeting for Drew Brees deal expected soon

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 21:19:41 -0800

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees' representatives are expected to meet with the team at the upcoming NFL Scouting Combine "to try to hammer out what is potentially a short-term deal," according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. It is expected that the two sides find "common ground" on deal that will fall between $20 million and $25 million annually.

Fantasy Tip: Brees has already stated his desired to remain with the Saints, whom he wants to end his career with, so this isn't a surprise. The future Hall-of-Fame quarterback is still very much at the top of his game after registering a 103.9 passer rating last season. He ultimately finished with 4,334 yards, 23 touchdowns and just eight interceptions, while completing an NFL-record 72 percent of his passes. He's a no-brainer QB1.

Saints | Drew Brees has hard deadline

Fri, 16 Feb 2018 07:48:39 -0800

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees would become an unrestricted free agent March 14 if he doesn't reach a new deal. The final three contract years would void at the start of the new league year, and the Saints will have to pay $18 million worth of signing bonus prorated on this year's salary cap in addition to whatever salary they end up paying Brees for 2018.

Fantasy Tip: Brees' touchdowns took a big hit from 37 to 23 due to the running-game surge. He also threw for almost 1,000 fewer yards. You can expect those numbers to improve a little bit, and he falls right on the edge of that upper-tier fantasy quarterback.

Saints | Drew Brees to sign short-term deal?

Wed, 31 Jan 2018 23:41:06 -0800

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees is expected to sign a one- or two-year contract to return to the team, in the opinion of ESPN's Mike Triplett.

Fantasy Tip: Brees is apparently cut from the same cloth as Tom Brady and willing to keep his contact demands reasonable in an attempt to win another ring. Now 39, Brees remains one of the NFL's top quarterbacks, though the emergence of a powerful running game led to his worst statistical showing since he left San Diego after the 2005 season. He looks like more of a midrange QB1 moving forward.
