  • Saints' Drew Brees: Agrees to restructure
    By RotoWire Staff

    Brees agreed to restructure his contract, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports. The move clears up $10.8 million in cap room as the Saints attempt to re-sign backup quarterback Teddy Bridgewater and add tight end Jared Cook. Kicking the can down the road with Brees' contract is an annual tradition, with the team presumably resigned to taking a large dead cap charge whenever the 40-year-old quarterback retires. Brees won't have Mark Ingram (Ravens) by his side in 2019, but the addition of Cook would more than make up for the loss in terms of pass-game value.

  • Saints' Drew Brees: Plans to play in 2019
    By RotoWire Staff

    Brees plans to continue his football career, Mike Triplett of ESPN.com reports. "I feel pretty positive," Brees said Sunday. "I plan on being here next year and making another run at it." Brees had a tough time against the Los Angeles defense in the late stages of the NFC Championship Game, but he still came within one blown call of reaching the Super Bowl for a second time. He enjoyed one of his better seasons in 2018, establishing a new career-high mark for passer rating (115.7) while breaking his own NFL record for completion percentage (74.4). The 40-year-old is still a reliable fantasy starter, though his utility has dropped off the past two seasons with the Saints often relying on their running game and defense to obtain victories. Backed by a strong offensive line as well as Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara, it's probably an easy decision for Brees to play another season. The team might rely on its passing game a bit more if Mark Ingram finds a new home in free agency.

  • Brees completed 26 of 40 passes for 249 yards with two touchdowns and one interception in the Saints' 26-24 overtime loss to the Rams in Sunday's NFC Championship Game. He also lost two yards on two rushes. Brees showered plenty of attention on Alvin Kamara, hitting his dynamic running back on 11 occasions for 96 yards. The Rams did an excellent job taking away Michael Thomas after the third-year wideout eviscerated them in their regular-season meeting, limiting Brees' downfield options overall. However, if not for one of the most controversial non-calls in recent postseason history -- a would-be pass interference on the Rams' Nickell Robey-Coleman against Tommylee Lewis that would have given the Saints a key first down deep in Rams territory late -- Brees may well have been the quarterback representing the NFC in the Super Bowl. The multi-time Pro Bowler ends what was yet another stellar season on a disappointing note, one in which he generated a 32:5 TD:INT and threw for 3,992 yards.

  • Saints' Drew Brees: Atones for early mistake
    By RotoWire Staff

    Brees completed 28 of 38 passes for 301 yards with two touchdowns and an interception during the Saints' 20-14 divisional-round playoff win over the Eagles on Sunday. He also netted zero yards on three rushes and fumbled twice, recovering one himself. The future Hall of Famer's day couldn't have started off any worse, as he was intercepted by Cre'von LeBlanc on a deep throw down the middle intended for Ted Ginn on his first pass of the day. However, it was much more trademark Brees from that point forward, as he completed 28 of his subsequent 37 attempts, with 12 of his completions and 171 of his yards going to Michael Thomas. Brees also connected with Thomas for a two-yard score to cap off an outstanding 18-play, 92-yard march that took up 11:29 of the third quarter, a throw that was preceded by a two-yard hookup with Keith Kirkwood in the second to begin the Saints' comeback from an early 14-0 hole. Brees will now look to repeat the feat in what could be an offensive showdown for the ages versus the Rams in next Sunday's NFC Championship Game.

  • Saints' Drew Brees: Officially inactive for Week 17
    By RotoWire Staff

    Brees (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Panthers, John DeShazier of the Saints' official site reports. It was revealed a couple days earlier that Brees wouldn't play in Week 17 with the Saints having secured the NFC's No. 1 seed in the postseason, but it wasn't known whether or not he would dress as the backup to fill-in starter Teddy Bridgewater. Brees' place on the inactive list ensures that Taysom Hill will work as Bridgewater's top understudy.
