Drew Brees announces he will return for 2020 season

Saints quarterback Drew Brees announced he will return for the 2020 season, according to a report from ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter. Brees also posted a message to his personal Instagram account indicating that he was returning.

Fantasy Impact

Brees remains under contract with the Saints, but there was some talk about the veteran quarterback retiring. He turned 41 years old in January. Now, it appears he will return to the Saints for at least one more season after throwing for 2,979 yards with 27 touchdowns and four interceptions in 11 games in 2019.
