Drew Brees named finalist for NFL 100 All-Time Team

New Orleans Saints starting quarterback Drew Brees was named a finalist for the NFL 100 All-Time Team on Monday, Dec. 23 on ESPN.

The process to select and celebrate the NFL 100 all-time team began in early 2018 with the appointment of a 26-person blue-ribbon voting panel made up of coaches, team and front office executives, former players and members of the media with a deep appreciation for the history of the League, its teams and players, as well as a commitment to research.

Brees became the NFL's all-time leader in touchdown passes on Monday night in the Saints' 34-7 rout of the Indianapolis Colts. He set the all-time mark for passing yards in NFL history on a "Monday Night Football" contest against the Washington Redskins last season.

The 10 quarterbacks who will be on the team will be announced Friday, Dec. 27.

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees celebrates setting the NFL record for touchdown passes with 540, surpassing Peyton Manning.
