This may be the last season for New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees, our media partners at The Advocate/Times Picayune report.

Saints Head Coach Sean Payton said as much on Tuesday morning while appearing on ESPN's Get Up.

Despite agreeing to a 2-year, $50 million deal earlier in March, Payton called the Saints' quarterback situation unique because "with our quarterback Drew Brees, he's announced he's coming back for his final season," the newspapers report.

The 2020 season will be Brees' 20th season in the NFL and his 15th in New Orleans.
