Drew Brees’ contract with the New Orleans Saints revealed

The quarterback will earn over $25 million a year with the Saints

When the NFL enters the free agency period, one of the most changing markets is the one for quarterbacks. It was clear that the New Orleans Saints were not going to let Drew Brees go to any other team, so the franchise reached a deal that satisfied both parties. According to Albert Breer, Brees will earn over $50 million on his two-year contract deal with the Saints. Additionally, contract details revealed a $23 million and a $2 million roster bonus are set for this upcoming fall.

Also, under Brees’ new contract, there is a no-trade clause and no franchise-tag provision, which is very similar to what the Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed with Tom Brady. In comparison with other quarterbacks in the league, the value of Brady’s contract and duration is very similar to Brees’. On the other hand, Dak Prescott just rejected a $33 million a year deal for the long term with the Dallas Cowboys. The Indianapolis Colts signed Philip Rivers on a one-year deal for $25 million. For some analysts, it doesn’t make much sense that Prescott would have rejected a contract for $8 million more annually than Brees. 247Sports’ Kevin Flaherty states, “That’s why Brees taking $8 million less per year is such a huge deal — there aren’t many who would put Prescott in Brees’ league as a quarterback.”

Brees finished as the leader in league completion percentage for the third year in a row last season, a feat that was made more impressive due to his absence from the field because of a thumb injury.
