Few players in the era of NFL free agency can rival the impact that Drew Brees has made on the New Orleans Saints since arriving in 2006 from the San Diego Chargers. The franchise quarterback is entering his 13th season in the NFL and eighth with the Saints.
Brees is coming off another season of tremendous numbers after completing 422-of-670 passes (63.0 percent) for 5,177 yards with 43 touchdowns and 19 interceptions for a 96.3 rating.
He led the NFL in passing yardage, touchdown passes and completions of 25 yards or more (47) in 2012. The 43 passing touchdowns was the second-highest total (46 in 2011) of his career, making him and Dan Marino the only two players in NFL history with at least two seasons with 40 or more touchdowns.
