Is This The Last Time We Will See Drew Brees?

The New Orleans Saints enter their fourth straight postseason Sunday afternoon when they host the Chicago Bears. For quarterback Drew Brees, it could be his last.

According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the leaguewide expectation is that Brees will retire after this season, though he has not yet formally announced it.

“I have yet to talk to one person who believes that Drew Brees will play in 2021,” Rapoport said Sunday morning. “He has not made clear his decision, he has not announced definitively that he is retiring after the playoffs, but certainly that seems to be the way this is headed.”

The future hall of famer is completing his 20th NFL season and approaching his 42nd birthday on January 15. He led the Saints to a 12-4 record and their fourth-straight NFC South championship this season.

Brees, who missed four games this season with fractured ribs, still has one year left on his current contract. He reportedly contemplated retirement last offseason but decided to give himself one last shot at another Lombardi Trophy. Brees was named MVP of Super Bowl XLIV after beating the Colts, 31-17.

When Brees does retire, he reportedly has a job lined up at NBC to become an on-air analyst. Until then, he has a playoff meeting with the Chicago Bears Sunday afternoon in what could be his final NFL game. The Saints enter the contest 10.5-point favorites.

You can watch the game at 4:40 p.m. ET Sunday on CBS.
