1. Drew Brees

There was never a doubt who rounded out the top five quarterbacks in Saints history. Of course, it's Drew Brees. As one of the all-time NFL greats, Brees came to the Saints after spending his first five seasons with the San Diego Chargers.

In his first year with New Orleans, Brees was voted an All Pro. From there, the rest is history. Brees would go on to make 12 Pro Bowls with the Saints while leading the league in passing yards on seven occasions, along with being the NFL's touchdown leader four separate times. Brees would also lead the league in completion percentage six different times.

In both 2008 and 2011, Brees was named the AP Offensive Player of the Year, yet never won an MVP, shockingly enough. In 2010, of course, Brees and the Saints won Super Bowl XLIV when they beat Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts.

Brees heads the all-time passing list in New Orleans by a mile, throwing for 68,010 yards, 491 touchdowns and 190 picks. His yardage and touchdowns are more than three times that of the second place Manning.
