At 30+ million a year... why not play until 50.

It's not like the newer protect-the-QB-at-all-costs rules won't help him or something.

Re: FYI On Drew

OK. Brees is going to be Brees for a few more years. Any estimates as to his final numbers? I say 90k is well within his reach, especially if the Saints can be a consistent Super Bowl contender with long play-off runs for the remainder of his career.

I personally think that Brees sees the current roster as something really special. Solid O & D lines. Talent at corner and safety positions. The best receiver he's ever played with, and solid at #2 and #3. Possibly one of the best running backs to ever play.

That, along with a mighty big pay check, is awfully hard to walk away from.

Re: FYI On Drew

He's got too many records to break to retire. That includes all of his own records that he is still breaking. He has a couple of more good years in him before he even would be considered as a game manager, which could still win us a Super Bowl.

Re: FYI On Drew

That’s good for all the obvious reasons, but also because if he retired after this season we’d have $21 million in dead cap for 2019 just from Brees alone.
