After not selecting a quarterback in the 2017 draft, the New Orleans Saints still have a significant question mark for their future.

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees might just be ageless.

The 39-year old quarterback has not shown any signs of slowing down. He has five seasons of 5,000 or more passing yards, putting him number one in that category (no other QB has more than one). There doesn’t appear to be any wear-and-tear on Brees, as he’s stayed healthy for almost all of the ten seasons he’s been in New Orleans. He is surrounded by young studs such as Michael Thomas, Willie Snead, Mark Ingram, and now has Adrian Peterson as the SECOND best running back behind him, making his job even easier. Brees has even gone on record saying he could play for many more years to come.

Unfortunately, Father Time always wins. Brees will retire eventually, the Saints, organization and fans alike, will have to move forward with a new man under center. After not selecting a quarterback in the 2017 Draft, the biggest question is this: how will the Saints plan on replacing the future Hall of Famer?
