Saints QB Brees Announces Retirement at 42Saints record-setting quarterback Drew Brees has decided to retire after 20 NFL seasons, including his last 15 with New Orleans.
The 42-year-old quarterback announced his decision on Sunday on a social media post.
It comes after Brees won nine of 12 regular-season starts while completing 70.5% of his passes in 2020.
He came back from multiple rib fractures and won a wild-card round playoff game before New Orleans’ season ended with a divisional-round playoff loss Tampa Bay.
Brees is the NFL’s all-time leader in yards passing with 80,358. Brees’ 571 career touchdown passes rank second behind Tom Brady’s 581.
