Is this the end for Drew Brees?

The New Orleans Saints 30-20 divisional round loss to the Buccaneers may have not only marked the end of their season, but also the career of legendary quarterback Drew Brees.

Over the past 15 years, a few things have been certain; death, taxes, and Drew Brees being amongst the league leaders in passing yards. The future hall of fame quarterback won Super Bowl XLIV, was named Super Bowl XLIV MVP, is a 13-time pro-bowler, is a 7-time passing yards leader, and was named NFL Offensive Player of the year twice. he’s done it all! But, will he retire? 

After the game against the Bucs, Brees commented, “I’m going to give myself an opportunity to think about the season, think about a lot of things, just like I did last year, and make a decision.”

When asked if he regretted returning for the 2019-2020 football season, Brees said, “I would never regret it. Never.”

Off the field, Brees is known for his work in the community. Recently, he pledged $5 million to Louisiana to assist in Covid-19 relief, as well as funded a program to deliver 10,000 meals to those in need around the state.

 According to the Tampa Bay Times, the Brees Dream Foundation has donated more than $33 million to assist cancer patients around the world, and Brees has been an important contributor in helping rebuild New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. 

Despite recent backlash in 2020 for his “disrespecting the flag” comments, Brees has been an upstanding athlete on and off the field. If this was really his last go-round, one thing is for sure; the all-time leader in passing yards has had one hell of a career.
