Reports: Brees Headed to Saints

Reports: Brees headed to Saints

Free-agent quarterback Drew Brees has agreed to play for the New Orleans Saints, according to The Times-Picayune and WWL-TV, both of which cited unidentified sources in their reports.

Brees spent the last five seasons with the San Diego Chargers but reached a stalemate with them on a new contract. He had been in negotiations with the Saints and the Miami Dolphins. Terms of the new agreement were not available.

Assuming this goes through and combined with the Dolphins’ trade for Daunte Culpepper, the number of potential franchise caliber free agent quarterbacks on the market is now zero. Everyone else needing a new QB will have to try their luck in the draft or bring in the likes of Kerry Collins, John Kitna, or Patrick Ramsey and hope for the best.
