Brees Will Reportedly Be NFL’s Highest-Paid
Mike Triplett of the Times Picayune says he'll be "stunned" if the deal falls apart now, with the deadline less than a week away. Over the past six seasons, Brees has completed more passes for more yards, touchdowns, and a higher completion percentage than any other quarterback playing during that time. He's led the Saints to four playoff appearances, three division titles, two trips to the NFC Championship game, and a Superbowl Championship. He was named MVP of Superbowl XLIV. Brees holds single season records
for passing yards, 300 yard passing games in a season, completions in a season, and completion percentage. He's one of only three players to pass for 5,000 yards in a season, and the only player who's done it twice. Media speculation has been rampant about the delay in getting a long -term deal in place.
