Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints have agreed to a new two-year deal worth $50 million, with $27 million guaranteed, a source confirmed to ESPN, keeping the future Hall of Famer off the free-agent market as expected.

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, per source. It also will include a no-trade clause, virtually ensuring that Brees finishes his career in New Orleans.

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.

The #Saints and QB Drew Brees have struck a 2-year deal worth $50M, sources tell me and @SlaterNFL. He gets $27M guaranteed.

Hes back and everyone can breathe.

Re: Drew Brees Deal is Done!

No reason why anyone should have been holding their breath. As I've been saying all along there was always a ZERO percent chance a deal wasn't going to be made. Anyone who thought different doesn't understand the dynamics involved with Brees, Payton, Loomis and the Saints.

Re: Drew Brees Deal is Done!

Does that 50ml include the 18ml signing bonus that he was owed then?

If so he has effectively agreed a 32ml 2 year deal

That Im not sure about. Im under the assumption that the $18 million dead cap hit is just being kicked down the road and will hit when hes officially done.

Re: Drew Brees Deal is Done!

Winning and making the playoffs last year was critical to renewing with Brees. As was last year's draft and the success of Kamara and Lattimore. There's a reason to keep the window open and try to win now. If Saints had finished with 6 or 7 wins it would have been a different story.
