Brees might stay with the New Orleans Saints
By Bob Garcia
The quarterback might give it another go next year, but nothing is for certain
It’s been discussed for days already that Drew Brees’ retirement from the New Orleans Saints is around the corner. Just right after the loss the New Orleans Saints took against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the playoffs, these rumors started to take new legs and they were pointing in the direction of the quarterback leaving the NFL forever after being part of it for over 20 years. However, now there is talk that he could stick around for next season.
There have been comments that the 42-year-old future first-ballot Hall of Famer had “fair-enough” participation during his entire career. However, that might not be the case after the Saints were eliminated weeks ago. Mickey Loomis, the Saints’ GM, said, “I don’t think it’s a lot different from last year. We’ll wait for him. We’ve got a lot of other planning to do. There are more unknowns right now than there are knowns in the sense that we don’t yet know what the cap’s going to be.”
Back in the 2019 season, Brees decided to take some time off after the season to think if he was returning or not, but anyway, the situation is not the same on this occasion. Over the past two seasons, Brees has missed nine games due to multiple injuries, and he’s also failed to throw at least 3,000 yards or 30 touchdowns during that same time. He has had some struggles getting the ball down the field, but, at this moment, his future is uncertain, so it’s just a matter of time to see what is coming next for him.
