The New Orleans Saints are working on a new four year deal for Drew Brees. This deal would keep Brees with the team until 2020 and would pair him with Coach Sean Payton through the 2020 season. In 2020, Drew Brees will be 41 years old. Many times, Sean Payton has mentioned how well Brees maintains his body so the expectation seems to be that Brees will be a functioning quarterback during this time.
This news should give fans a level of confidence the deal is moving forward this year and Brees will be under center for the foreseeable future.
