Saints quarterback Drew Brees has agreed to a 50-million-dollar, two-year-deal with the Saints. Sources says that Brees will receive 27-million-dollars guaranteed. The signing follows reports the Minnesota Vikings had contacted the 39-year-old's agent about going north.
Saints radio color analyst Deuce McAllister says there's a team option after the first year.
"For him it's really to see how he feels after this year and really see how the team feels after this year about much progress the team has made."

New Orleans Saints Quarterback Drew Brees has been with the team now for 12 seasons. His contract will expire in March as NFL free agency approaches. Saints GM Mickey Loomis says there’s no worry about getting Brees resigned in the Saints camp.
"Look, he's been our quarterback for a long time and been a great thing, a great thing for our city, great thing obviously for our team and I'm anticipating he's going to continue that."

There was no happy ending in Los Angeles for the Saints, who had their eight-game winning streak snapped by the up and coming Rams. New Orleans had trouble getting its offense going and the defense missed its top two cornerbacks, who are injured. Coach Sean Payton says LA was the better team in the 26-20 win.

The Saints nearly blew a 35-point lead, but an opportunistic Black and Gold defense preserved a 52-38 victory over the Detroit Lions. The Saints defense, which looked very bad at the beginning of the season, forced five turnovers and scored a franchise record three touchdowns in one game. Head Coach Sean Payton credits the pressure put on Detroit QB Matthew Stafford.
