New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees will be the active career leader in passing yards and tied with Tom Brady for the active lead in touchdowns once Peyton Manning announces his retirement.

The retirement announcement is expected to come Monday, ESPN reported.

Manning has thrown for 71,940 yards and 539 touchdowns -- both are NFL records -- over 18 seasons, including one he missed to recover from multiple neck procedures.

Brees has thrown for 60,903 yards and 428 touchdowns over 14 seasons, the first four with the San Diego Chargers and the last 10 with the Saints.

The Manning retirement also will make Brees the active career leader in completions (5,365), attempts (8,085) and interceptions (205).

The passing title is well within Drew's reach, a few good seasons and it's his.
I wonder if he'll get the recognition he deserves then....

If Drew has time in the pocket he'll get the yards......sooner rather than later.

Drew Brees to be active leader in passing yards once Peyton Manning retires

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees will be the active career leader in passing yards and tied with Tom Brady for the active lead in touchdowns once Peyton Manning announces his retirement.

The retirement announcement is expected to come Monday, ESPN reported.

Manning has thrown for 71,940 yards and 539 touchdowns -- both are NFL records -- over 18 seasons, including one he missed to recover from multiple neck procedures.

Brees has thrown for 60,903 yards and 428 touchdowns over 14 seasons, the first four with the San Diego Chargers and the last 10 with the Saints.

The Manning retirement also will make Brees the active career leader in completions (5,365), attempts (8,085) and interceptions (205).

For Brees to surpass Manning in career yards and touchdowns is not out of the question.

Brees could reach both yards mark by 2018 if he played the next three seasons at his current rate of production, having topped 4,300 yards in each of his 10 seasons with the Saints.
