Drew Brees restructured his contract to open up some cap space for the Saints.

#9 apparently wants another shot.

This is weeks old and is not an indication one way or the other if he is going to play again.

But LaToya Cantrell putting out a video begging him to come by offering his wife the headline slot of Essence fest may indicate he’s not coming back :lol:

There is no mystery. He's not coming back.

There's a better chance China admits being complicit in the Covid pandemic than Brees suiting up next year.

He has reached the "get here quick, Daddy had a fall" stage of his career.

His retirement won't get announced officially until after June 1st. After that the Saints can spread his dead cap hit over the 2021 and 2022 season. If done now it all goes into 2021. The restructure was a pre-cursor to his retirement, it gave the Saints instant cap relief, that is why that got done at this point (have to be cap compliant by the begging of the 2021 season).

They can announce it at any time...the announcement isn't official and doesn't effect the cap (filing the paperwork is the key there).

My take is he's planning to announce on Mar 14th - the 15th anniversary of the day he signed here.
