Deal is done !

The New Orleans Saints said they wanted Drew Brees to remain a New Orleans Saint.

Drew Brees will remain, and likely will finish his Hall of Fame career, as a New Orleans Saint.

Brees, the best player in franchise history, and the Saints agreed to a two-year contract Tuesday that will push Brees to 19 NFL seasons, 14 with the Saints. During the next two years, among the NFL records within Brees’ reach is passing yards (he has 70,445; Peyton Manning’s record is 71,940) and touchdown passes (Brees sits at 488; Manning’s record is 539).

“I think that provides, certainly, the team with the most flexibility when it comes to being able to anticipate the future and the ability to acquire free agents and re-sign players on our existing roster that will build a championship team,” Brees told ESPN.

However, when the Saints were on the clock, another player they’d given a first-round grade was still available, Utah safety Marcus Williams.
