It's always sad to see the great one hang up their cleats. Especially ones who can still throw the ball and those we missed out on.

Saints QB Drew Brees announced his retirement from the NFL after 20 seasons.

Brees has been mulling retirement for the entire offseason but all reports indicated that he would be hanging up the cleats. Rumors of his retirement have been swirling for years but the Saints have been good enough for "one more season" to always apply to Brees and the team. After falling short in the Divisional Round versus the Bucs this year, Brees was finally ready to call it quits. At the time of his retirement, Brees holds the record for career passing yards at 80,358. His 571 passing touchdowns are second all-time, behind only Tom Brady, who will overtake him in the passing yards category in 2021. Brees was one of the most accurate passers in the league for two decades and also became a living legend in New Orleans sports history. The Saints will now look to Taysom Hill or Jameis Winston to lead their franchise going forward. Hill was made the starter when Brees missed time in 2020 but reports out of New Orleans indicate that they want to bring back Winston as the team's future.
