Is Drew Brees coming out of retirement to play for the Saints?

Drew Brees has been the epitome of the city of New Orleans since being traded there from the (then) San Diego Chargers in 2006. In addition to bringing a Super Bowl trophy to the bayou in the 2009-2010 NFL season, Brees is best known for being a vital member of the community post-Hurricane Katrina.

His work in the New Orleans community is well documented and Brees was part of the reason why the Saints were so instrumental in lifting the spirits of fellow residents.

With the recent season-ending ACL injury to Saints quarterback Jameis Winston, the world wants to know if Drew Brees will come out of retirement and once again save the city of New Orleans and the Saints?

The retirement of Drew Brees was always going to lead to an interesting season for the New Orleans Saints. However, as New Orleans placed their second-and third-string QBs on the COVID list this week, they reportedly turned back to their former QB to see if Brees could be lured out of retirement. Let’s take a look back at Brees’ career and whether he might be tempted to return for the Saints.

During Brees’ time in San Diego, he started 58 games with a 30-28 record while completing 62.2% of his passes for 12,348 yards, 80 touchdowns, and 53 interceptions. As a free agent in 2006, Brees moved to the New Orleans Saints, where he would spend the next 15 years.

Brees helped turn the fortunes of the Saints around

Brees arrived in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina had devastated the city and left the team homeless the year before. He would play 228 games for the Saints over his 15-year career there. During that time, he completed 68.8% of his passes for 68,010 yards with 491 touchdowns and 190 interceptions.

When Brees arrived, the team was coming off a 3-13 season and had just one winning season in their last five. They had been to the playoffs just once in 13 seasons and had finished at the bottom of the division four times in that span.
