Drew Brees is set to return for his 20th NFL season and during an appearance on WEEI's The Greg Hill Show, the Pro Bowl quarterback said he's unsure of his plans beyond 2020 but said he'd only play any future seasons with the New Orleans Saints.
"Listen, I don’t have any intention of going anywhere," Brees said. "I don’t care what the offer would be or what the situation might be. I’m Who Dat Nation for life.
"And so, as long as they’ll have me and as long as I want to play, that’s where I’ll be."
Brees turned 41 in January made the statement when asked about fellow all-time great Tom Brady's potential departure from the New England Patiots. Brees said on the show his goal is to win another championship much like Brady.
The quarterback made it clear he's planning to return to the franchise which went 13-3 last season. He passed for 2,979 yards and 27 touchdowns while nearly matching a career-best by completing 74.3 percent of his passes in 2019. He missed five games with an injured thumb, but was still able to become the NFL’s all-time leader in touchdown passes last year. Brees is currently the NFL's all-time leader in yards, completions and completion percentage as well.
