  • Though Brees is slated to become an unrestricted free agent in March, when asked following Sunday's divisional-round loss to the Vikings if he considered himself a part of the Saints' future, he replied, "I do," Herbie Teope of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. Brees, who turned 39 on Monday, continues to play at a very high level, having passed for 4,334 yards this past season while logging a 23:8 TD:INT ratio. Meanwhile, top backup Chase Daniel is also slated to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and No. 3 signal caller Taysom Hill is signed through 2019. Expect the Saints to make re-signing Brees -- who has excelled as the franchise signal caller since 2006 -- an offseason priority. Given his desire to remain with the team, it would be surprising if the two sides aren't able to strike a deal.

  • Brees completed 25 of 40 passes for 294 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions during Sunday's 29-24 NFC divisional-round loss to the Vikings. Brees and the Saints looked to be on the wrong side of a potential blowout when they fell behind 17-0 by halftime, as a tough Minnesota defense stifled New Orleans' ground game while picking off two of Brees' passes in the process. However, the veteran gunslinger hit the ground running coming out of the break and picked apart the Vikings secondary throughout the second half. He came within seconds of securing the win after leading his team to a field goal to go up 24-23 with 25 seconds remaining, but the Vikings' offense took advantage of a Saints defensive blunder and got Stefon Diggs loose for a game-winning touchdown as time expired. On the bright side for Brees is the fact that all of his key offensive weapons are set to return to New Orleans for the 2018 campaign, though potential investors in the aging quarterback should keep in mind that the Saints' evident shift away from a pass-heavy offensive attack in 2017 seems likely to persist going forward.

  • Saints' Drew Brees: Tops 375 yards in victory
    By RotoWire Staff

    Brees completed 23 of 33 passes for 376 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 31-26 NFC wild-card win over the Panthers. Brees was excellent, extending his unbeaten home playoff streak to five games since joining the Saints. Both of the signal-caller's touchdown throws came during the first half, including a season-long, 80-yard bomb to Ted Ginn to close the first quarter. Overall, Brees found eight different receivers Sunday, posting a gaudy yardage total he topped just once during the regular season. Although he threw an interception on a critical fourth down in the game's closing stages, the veteran will still be pleased by his performance, which helped clinch a divisional-round matchup against the Vikings next Sunday.

  • Saints' Drew Brees: Throws for 245 yards in loss
    By RotoWire Staff

    Brees completed 22 of 30 passes for 245 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions in Sunday's 31-24 loss to the Buccaneers. He also gained two yards on his sole rush. Brees connected with seven different pass catchers, but he predictably encountered his greatest degree of success when throwing to Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara. The veteran gunslinger failed to eclipse the 300-yard mark for the sixth straight contest, however, and he managed just a single passing touchdown for the fourth time in the last six games. Brees did see an unfavorable three-game interception streak snapped and finished the contest with a 108.3 rating. With a 12th consecutive 4,000-yard campaign locked up, he'll turn his attention to an NFC wild-card home showdown against the division-rival Carolina Panthers next Sunday afternoon, a team that he generated a 4:0 TD:INT ratio against over two games this season.

  • Saints' Drew Brees: Held in check by Falcons
    By RotoWire Staff

    Brees completed 21 of 28 pass attempts for 239 yards, one touchdown and one interception during Sunday's 23-13 win over the Falcons. Brees completed an impressive 75 percent of his passes while averaging a healthy 8.5 yards per attempt. He connected with Ted Ginn on a 54-yard touchdown just before halftime, but he still finished with his fourth-lowest yardage total of the season as the team once again went with a run-heavy approach. Most importantly, Brees helped his team clinch a playoff berth and will look to jostle for positioning next week against a Buccaneers defense that's been quite generous to opposing passers this season.
