Drew Breesí retirement talk isnít idle chatter

Saints quarterback Drew Brees will return to the team for a 15th season or retire. Whatever he ultimately does, this isnít an effort to generate attention or spark discussion. Brees, unlike plenty of other quarterbacks who from time to time have talked openly about retirement with no real intention of ever doing so, is and will be genuinely and seriously considering retirement.

As one source explained it to PFT, the Saints wants Brees back for what would essentially become a transition year, from Brees to Taysom Hill with Hill becoming the starter in 2021. Even if Brees comes back, Hill will be used much more extensively as part of the teamís offense in 2020 ó especially in light of some private regret that, if Hill had been utilized just a little bit more in the wild-card loss to the Vikings, the Saints quite likely would have won the game.

Honestly, 1 more year of Drew sounds fair. Would be even better if he announces it's his last year before the season.

I just feel every year it will be the same. He does not want to retire before Brady

He's not retiring. Only QBs playing today that would have had a chance in that game with how bad our O line played are Russel Wilson or Deshaun Watson.

Wilson or Mahomes, in my book. I'd much rather have Brees than Watson.

Brees is doing this all for stats. I can’t believe how selfish he’s gotten over the years

Bull****. You haven't a clue. There's probably not a less selfish player in the game. He loves to complete, loves the game as a whole and wants to win. The only stats he wants are wins.

I've very often felt comfortable with the ball in Brees hands and the decisions he makes. The offseason is no different. Take your time Drew, it's cool. There probably is no wrong decision.
