NFL Records Drew Brees Holds And Records He Can Still Break
Last night, New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees made history as he became the all-time leading passer in NFL history. That's right, Drew Brees is the G.O.A.T. However, he's far from done collecting NFL records. I thought we'd take a look to remind ourselves just how many NFL records Drew Brees currently holds, and take a look at the records he can still break.
Sbnation.com has collected a lot of this information on Brees and has plenty more that you can checkout HERE.
The crazy thing is, Drew Brees is still playing at as high of a level as he ever has since becoming a Saint in 2001. He looks as good this season as ever, if not better, so who knows how many more seasons he still has left.
Oh, and Drew Brees is also one the most accurate Quarterbacks in history as well.
