As long as he continues to play at an elite level (which he is still doing), I expect him to approach the 2021 off-season in exactly the same manner as the previous four seasons and return, once again, to start in 2021.
He has only committed to one more season so the title is accurate for now. No need to overanalyze.

Definitely need to draft/trade for O-line and WR/TE.

The fact that fans are more concerned over dead money than the clubs themselves speaks volumes. Under the next CBA the cap is likely to skyrocket as there are several new revenue sources that will be factored into the new calculation, as well as an increase in the percentage of revenues allotted to the players. As it sits now the 2020 cap looks to be just north of $200 million. By 2025 that figure could easily be approaching $300 million. By pushing that previously expensed cap in the future it becomes a far smaller percentage of the overall cap.

You can also look at dead money in two totally different ways. The most common form of dead money is in the form of unearned capital. This is the case where a player fails to perform to the club's expectations and is cut or traded with guarantees remaining on their contract. The other form is earned capital which is restructured into future years as in the case of Drew Brees. This money has been earned, but is simply being accounted for in a future period. Because of the inflation of the cap is actually results in savings for the club's books.

I wasn't being critical of the title, I was pointing out that things simply appear to be status quo as compared to the previous three off-seasons. I was playing off the word "one" to make that point. Literary licence.

As to committing to one more season, that isn't known at this time. True, his last few contracts have been multiyear with everything after year one voided. That is most likely going to be the case again, but until the contract is finalized there's no way of being absolutely sure of how many seasons Brees has indeed agreed.

Yup. Unless your mail carrier gave him a call.

I never had a doubt he would be back for next season, and I doubt many of you did, either.

Re: Drew Is Coming Back For The 2020 Season

Like I have previously stated; I wouldn't have minded change at the position but I am happy that he is our QB now
