Drew Brees First To Pass For 75,000 Yards
Every time Drew Brees completes a pass, he breaks 2 records. The Saints future Hall of Fame quarterback set NFL records for pass completions and passing yards last season. Brees completed a 19 yarder to tight end Dan Arnold late in the first half of the Saints blowout win over the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. That put the Saints signal-caller over the 75,000-yard mark. That’s almost 43 miles!
He completed his first NFL pass against Kansas City in 2001, while playing for the San Diego Chargers. If Drew continues on this pace, he will pass the 80,000-yard mark in the ninth game of the 2020 season.
A few years ago, Brees was drug tested twice in one week after publicly stating he wants to play till he’s 45. Vinny Testaverde and Warren Moon both played 'til they were 44. Who knows? He may just pull it off!
