Will Drew Brees retire?

If Drew gets his second ring, and plays like he did against Carolina for the rest of the playoffs do you think he retires?

His contract is up, and with 3 more MVP playoff games it would be hard for him to not contemplate retirement. In my opinion he comes back even if this scenario occurs and competes for another 2-4 years.

Nope, he's too competitive.

He will play until they cart him off the field.

Brees will not retire if he wins his second Super Bowl this year.

Agree with this.

However, if I were him I would retire. Finish right on the top of your game and auto hall of famer.

Brees is already a 1st ballot HOFer even if he never plays another down of pro football. There's nothing he can do at this point to change that, good or bad.

He said he will play into his 40's.
If not in Nola, then whoever else will have him.
I get the feeling he and Brady will play until 42 or 43 then they will slow down.

Drew's arm is strong and his touch is still touch.
I think Drew will be in Nola so long as Sean Payton is here, until Drew retires.

Re: Will Drew Brees retire?

Considering how he has been disrespected by the sports media’s love affair with Manning, Brady and every rising star rookie, I thing Brees is going to play -

1 - as long as he continues to perform to his own standards
2 - until he owns about every QB record in the books
3 - until the majority of his record numbers are "untouchable" by mortals

I think Brees needs a 2nd ring, hoping they get the **** together and win it this year.

Re: Will Drew Brees retire?

He will be back next season for all of the reasons stated above Plus... You dont make it to 1485 yards, 78 completions, and 51 TDs shy of all time records and call it a day.

At minimum he plays two more seasons to break Manning's Passing TD record, then his previously mentioned competitiveness kicks in and he tries to outlast Brady to retain the titles.
