NFL CAREER – Few players in the era of NFL free agency can rival the impact that Drew Brees has made on the Saints since arriving in 2006 from the San Diego Chargers – leading the team to victory in Super Bowl XLIV and being named the contest’s MVP, earning league Offensive Player of the Year honors after three seasons, Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year and Associated Press Male Athlete of the Year in 2010, being named to the Pro Bowl ten times and shattering league and team passing records. He ranks among the league’s elite quarterbacks, becoming the first player in NFL history to pass for over 4,000 yards in 12-straight campaigns – including an NFL-record five 5,000-yard passing seasons. Brees has also set single-season NFL records since joining the Saints in 300-yard passing games (13, 2011), completions (471, 2016) and completion percentage (72.0%). His streak of 54 consecutive games with a touchdown pass from 2009-12 shattered a mark that had stood since 1960. In 2017, he completed 386-of-536 passes (72.0%) for 4,334 yards, 23 touchdowns and a 103.9 rating with only eight interceptions over 16 starts. He set the NFL single-season mark for completion percentage. He owns the three of the top five completion percentage totals in NFL record books. Brees’ record as a starter for the Saints is 112-78 (.590) in the regular season and 7-5 (.583) in the postseason, easily making him the winningest signal-caller in all-time team annals. Brees also has thrown for over 300 yards in a league-record 109 games, including a league-best 15 contests with over 400. Overall in his 17-year NFL career, he’s completed 6,222-of-9,294 passes (66.9%) for 70,445 yards, 488 touchdowns and a 96.7 rating. He’s the NFL’s all-time most accurate passer, is ranked second in completions, tied for third in touchdown passes and ranked third in passing yardage while he’s sixth in passer rating. A pillar of the community, he’s also received numerous accolades and awards for taking a leadership role off the field in the Gulf South community.
