Drew Brees plans to 'think about a lot of things' before making decision on retirement


Reports have circulated for weeks that this would be New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees’ final season.

The future Hall-of-Famer was asked bluntly if Sunday’s 30-20 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the NFC Divisional Round would be his final game and declined to say whether or not it would be.

“I’m going to give myself an opportunity to think about the season, think about a lot of things, just like I did last year, and make a decision,” Brees said.

The NFL’s All-Time leader in passing yards said he wouldn’t share what would go into that decision but did say that Sunday’s game which saw him throw three interceptions and the Saints turn the ball over four times would not be a factor.
