The decade-long partnership between the New Orleans Saints and Drew Brees should come to an end at the end of the 2020 season.
Drew Brees came to the New Orleans Saints in 2006 after spending a few years with the San Diego Chargers. As a fresh, young quarterback, no one knew the heights that Brees would reach in the next decade with the Saints.
He was immediately a Pro-Bowl and first-team All-Pro selection in his very first year with the New Orleans franchise. He would go on to win the organization’s first Lombardi trophy during the 2009 season.
Drew Brees has set almost all the Saints passing records and even broken a handful of NFL records. He even went as far as to break his own records multiple times. He has been amazing for the city.
Brees is a sure-fire Hall-of-Famer in New Orleans and in the NFL yet somehow managed to rank 16th in Chris Simms’ rankings of the best quarterbacks in the league.
That said, it is sad to see such a luxurious career come to a close, but the partnership that has lasted for fourteen years needs to come to a close after the 2020 season, and here is why.
