Drew Brees is returning for the New Orleans Saints 2020 season. Prior to this announcement, Drew was set to hit the market as a free agent with a bunch of other high-profile quarterbacks:

When NFL fans (not just Saints fans) were polled via SB Nation’s FanPulse on which quarterback they would want on their team next year, Drew Brees had the highest vote of any other potential option - including five-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady.

Of note, after Brees and a miscellanous catch-all “Other” option, the quarterback with the third-highest percentage of votes was pending free agent and fellow former New Orleans Saint Teddy Bridgewater.

But sorry, NFL fans: Drew Brees is officially off the market. Teddy is still likely available, though.
