New Orleans, other teams are reaching out.


What it also ensures is that Brees will break a host of National Football League and franchise records, including Peyton Manning's National Football League all-time passing yardage mark and the team's all-time games played record, among others.

Brees has thrown for 70,445 yards with 488 touchdown passes and 228 interceptions in 248 career contests since being made a second-round selection in the 2001 NFL Draft by the then-San Diego Chargers. Brees told reporters he expected to be back in 2018 following the 29-24 loss to the Minnesota Vikings in the divisional round.


So, why hasn't Brees signed a new contract yet? Brees was ranked No. 2 behind Kirk Cousins in NFL.com's Top 101 Free Agents of 2018. The Saints are going to be Super Bowl contenders next year.

Brees, who turned 39 in January, passed for 4,334 yards and 23 touchdowns, with eight touchdowns, previous year as the Saints posted their most balanced offensive numbers in several seasons. Per NFL Network's Tom Pelissero, the Vikings did that on Monday - and they weren't only team to do so.


Brees is 39. His chances to get to another Super Bowl are dwindling. Sure, Brees might find out definitively that one or more teams are willing to throw a monster contract his way - and it's a little risky for the Saints to leave that door open.
