Last dance? FOX NFL reporter says Drew Brees has made a decision for 2021
FOX’s Jay Glazer has hinted that Sunday night’s playoff game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be Drew Brees’ last at the Superdome in New Orleans. It’s expected that the legendary quarterback will announce his retirement after the playoffs.
Here’s the video where Glazer broke the news on FOX’s pregame show:

Coming into this game, Brees has over 80,000 yards passing during the regular season and 571 touchdown passes to 243 interceptions. For this season, he only appeared in 12 games due to an injury, but he still was electric. Brees threw for 2,942 yards with 24 touchdowns to six interceptions.
In the Saints first playoff game last weekend, Brees threw for 265 yards and two touchdowns against the Chicago Bears in a 21-9 win.
His lone Super Bowl win (as of right now) came in 2009 against the Indianapolis Colts and he was arguably the biggest reason why they went all the way. During that playoff run, he had 732 yards passing with eight touchdowns to zero interceptions.
Sunday’s game also features plenty of history for Brees and his opposing quarterback in Tom Brady. The two stars rank first and second all-time in the NFL for passing touchdowns.
If he does announce his retirement after this postseason, it won’t be long until Canton comes calling.
