New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees will retire after this season if the Saints win the Super Bowl, former teammate Reggie Bush said in an on-camera interview released Friday, Aug. 17. If not, Bush said Brees will keep playing.
The New Orleans Saints are releasing tight end Coby Fleener on Monday, according to a league source. This doesn't come as a big surprise after Fleener disappointed in his two seasons with the team, playing in just 11 games last year due to concussion issues. Fleener caught 72 passes for 926 yards and five touchdowns in his two years with the Saints, and the writing was on the wall when they signed Benjamin Watson in free agency. Watson has low-end TE1 upside with quarterback Drew Brees still under center.
The New Orleans Saints have made calls about potentially moving up from the No. 27 pick in the first round of Thursday's draft, according to sources. They could be interested in moving up if a certain quarterback that they like falls. Quarterback Drew Brees is getting long in the tooth and is only under contract through next season, so securing a quarterback for the future is high on their list of priorities. New Orleans may have to give up a lot in order to move up from late in the first round, though.
The New Orleans Saints are pushing hard to secure free-agent wide receiver Jordy Nelson away from the Raiders, according to a source. The Seahawks are another team in the mix for Nelson. Nelson appears to be close to making a decision one way or another, and Oakland may be the front-runner. In New Orleans, a pairing with future Hall of Fame quarterback Drew Brees would be appealing as well. He's play alongside receivers Michael Thomas and Ted Ginn, although the Saints appear to be transitioning towards more of a run-first team. Nelson would likely be more of a WR3 option wherever he lands in 2018.
Updating previous reports, New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees receives a $10.5 million signing bonus, a $10.2 million salary and $3.3 million in potential incentives in 2018. His cap number is $24 million.
New Orleans Saints impending free-agent QB Drew Brees agreed to a two-year, $50 million deal Tuesday, March 13, with the Saints. He'll receive $27 million guaranteed.
Free agent quarterback Drew Brees signed a two-year deal with the New Orleans Saints, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. The deal is reported to be worth $50 million (with $27 million guaranteed), as the Hall of Fame quarterback returns to New Orleans. Rapoport said earlier today that the two sides made progress yesterday, as Zach Streif's retirement opened up money, and now Brees will return to New Orleans (where he has played since 2006). Brees is still a top-10 quarterback, but the offense appears to be more focused on the rushing attack of Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara.
New Orleans Saints impending free-agent QB Drew Brees made significant progress on a two-year deal Monday, March 12, and it could be finalized Tuesday, March 13.
New Orleans Saints impending free-agent QB Drew Brees' agent has been contacted by the Minnesota Vikings, according to a source.
New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is set to be a free agent, but Saints GM Mickey Loomis confirmed the team's plans to re-sign Brees. He met with Saints brass Thursday night at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis to discuss a new contract. When asked about the meeting, Loomis said, "I think the important thing is Drew wants to be a New Orleans Saint and we want him to be a New Orleans Saint, so he's going to be a New Orlean Saint." Brees has said he has no plans to play for another team and it looks like he will be back for a 13th season in New Orleans. Even with the Saints featuring a more balanced last season, the 39-year-old was still among the league leaders in quarterback rating (103.9), passing yards (4,334) and completion percentage (72.0). This could be Brees' last contract.
