The rumors are no more. Sunday, Drew Brees announced with his family that he is retiring from the NFL.

On March 14, 2006, Drew Brees signed with the New Orleans Saints.

On March 14, 2021, Drew Brees officially retires. Pretty cool.

There will be days, weeks, months, and years to debate Brees’ legacy, but in short: he is one of the best QBs to ever live. More importantly, he is an even better person.

Thank you, Drew Brees.

  1. Brees basically said that standing and showing respect for the flag honors our military and promotes unity. Most would consider that a solid statement from a team leader. Then LeBron and Michael Thomas slam him and he folds like a wet noodle. Brees apologizes with…”It breaks my heart to know the pain I have caused”. So much for all the stats, I’ll always remember him as Kneel Brees.

  2. He should have done it a year ago….before he had the chance to piss everyone off (and then end up pissing all over himself). First he angered his childish woke teammates and the sports media zombies. Then he backpedaled and came off as a spineless weasel to half of American sports fans. All he had to say was “I respect their opinions, and I would hope they’d respect mine…end of story”. But he didn’t.

    He was one of the greats on the field, but he lost a lot of respect from many…selling all the goodwill he’d earned for a post-career analyst gig.
