The best Purdue quarterback of all time and quite possibly best quarterback ever, Drew Brees, is officially coming back for his 20th season in the NFL after he signed a two-year extension worth $50 million with the New Orleans Saints.

In February, Brees, who had been mulling retirement, announced that he would be returning to the Saints for the 2020 season after the team lost in the NFC Wild Card round against the Minnesota Vikings.

This upcoming season could very well be a send-off for the future Hall of Famer, as he is 41 years old and has been talking about retirement recently. Brees has also accomplished just about everything a player can in the NFL. Along with a Super Bowl win and he holds the record for most career passing yards with 77,416, career passing touchdowns with 547 and is 6th all-time in games played with 274.

Brees did tear a ligament in his thumb this past season which limited him to just 11 games, but he still played tremendously over those contests as he threw for 27 touchdowns and 2,979 yards while completing 74.3% of his passes and only throwing 4 interceptions. Clearly, Brees still has it and will continue his quest for another Super Bowl ring next season with a loaded New Orleans team.
