Drew Brees re-signs with Saints

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting the New Orleans Saints and QB Drew Brees have agreed to terms on a two-year $50 million deal including $27 million of guaranteed money.

Fantasy Impact

Although Brees garnered interest from the Vikings, he re-signed with the Saints, as we all expected. It looks like Brees, who just turned 39, will finish his career in New Orleans. His contract expires in 2020.

Drew Brees drawing interest from Vikings

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero is reporting that the Vikings have reached out to free agent Drew Brees to gauge interest.

Fantasy Impact

It was a shocking development to see Brees and the Saints not strike a deal prior to the legal tampering period, meaning any team could make a pitch to Brees. The Vikings are a team built to win now and they know it, which is why they are reportedly willing to give Kirk Cousins a three-year fully-guaranteed deal. Whatever the hold up is, Brees would be an even better solution to win now, though he is now 39 years old. We'll continue to update any developments on Brees' contract status.

Drew Brees expects to return with Saints

Drew Brees told reporters after the team's playoff loss to the Vikings that he expects to re-sign with the Saints and return for the 2018 season.

Fantasy Impact

Brees talked about the team's window of opportunity, seemingly ending any thoughts that the 39-year-old would mull retirement this offseason. Brees was less effective as a fantasy quarterback as he saw less volume than previous years, but he will still be in the QB1 mix entering 2018.

Drew Brees solid in playoff defeat

Drew Brees completed 25 of 40 pass attempts for 294 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in the Saints' loss to the Vikings on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Brees started slow but picked it up in the second half to finish with three touchdown passes. While he fell just shy of the 300-yard plateau, his second half turnaround made up for a lackluster first half. Brees' fantasy season was disappointing for him, though fine for a mere mortal, and he should likely have another similar season next year.
