Numerous outlets are reporting that Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints have agreed to a two year contract extension worth $50 Million.

This deal will most likely make Brees a "Saint for Life". Brees, 41 will stay in New Orleans through the 2021 season. Last season, he missed five games after a hand injury, but still led the NFL for the third consecutive year in completion percentage. He also led the Saints to an NFC South Division Title throwing 27 touchdowns and only four interceptions.

The announcement comes on the same day that Tom Brady, long time quarterback for the New England Patriots will not return for his 21st season becoming a free agent.
