Brees(y) Back In The Big Easy

Brady will look to do something that newly re-signed New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees found success in earlier in his career, find a new team that you are the missing piece to. 14 seasons later and here Drew Brees is, still reaping the benefits from his decision to leave a situation where he felt he was being forced out of.

Today, Bridgewater was met with the realization of that come back with a 3-year, $60M contract to replace Cam Newton in Carolina and join new Panthers head coach Joe Judge in their mission to bring the team back to the place they were at just 4 seasons ago.

Today, they went all-in. The Colts paid the longtime Chargers QB Phillip Rivers, who spent 16 seasons with the Charger franchise (SD & LA), a 1-year, $25M contract to play this season in Indy.
