Saints and QB Drew Brees Agree on Two-Year Deal Worth $50 Million

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

After a moment where there was chatter that the Minnesota Vikings put a call into him, the thought of the Saints losing Drew Brees was never really on the table, and today it was cemented he would be with the Saints for at least the next two seasons.

Brees and the Saints have agreed on a two-year deal worth a reported $50 million – a deal that will keep him flinging the ball down the field for the Saints till at least through the 2019 season.

The deal includes $27 million guaranteed. The news was first reported by NFL Network.

Brees’ deal will be written as a two-year deal, but in actuality it will be a one-year deal with a team option after the first year, he confirmed to ESPN. It also will include a no-trade clause, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports, virtually ensuring that Brees finishes his career in New Orleans.

“I think that provides certainly the team with the most flexibility when it comes to being able to anticipate the future and the ability to acquire free agents and re-sign players on our existing roster that will build a championship team,” said Brees about his willingness to only take one year guaranteed.

Brees, who turned 39 in January, insisted all along that he wants to be a “Saint for life” and didn’t plan to let any other teams in on a bidding war — even though had he done so, he possibly could have become the highest-paid player in NFL history for the second time in his career.
