NFL Rumors: Saints Quarterback Likely Leaving New Orleans In 2020 Free Agency

Drew Brees’ decision to return to the New Orleans Saints for the 2020 NFL season likely means at least one of the team’s quarterbacks is headed elsewhere. Teddy Bridgewater and Taysom Hill are both unsigned with free agency set to officially begin on March 18.

It would be a surprise if Bridgewater is still on the Saints roster in Week 1 of next season. Unlike Hill, Bridgewater has proven that he can be a winning starter in the NFL.

New Orleans probably won’t be able to match the best offer that Bridgewater will get on the open market. Even if the 27-year-old doesn’t get a deal worth close to $30 million a year as some have speculated, he’s likely to get an offer that will greatly exceed the Saints’ price range for a backup signal caller.

What could Drew Brees' next Saints contract extension look like?

Drew Brees intends to play in the 2020 NFL season, which is great news for the New Orleans Saints. Starting Brees at quarterback presents their best opportunity to win another Super Bowl title, but getting both parties to the negotiating table is the easy part. Now that both sides are interested in keeping this relationship together, they must hammer out a contract extension.

It’s gone easier in past years, thanks to the rising salary cap and Brees’ willingness to take team-friendly contracts. His last extension was a two-year, $50 million deal that paid out nearly $10 million below the price Brees could command on the open market; six other passers currently make $30 million or more per year, and the best quarterbacks are earning $35 million each season they suit up. Brees accepted a lower rate to help out the team, but it actually runs deeper than that.

In addition to a depressed salary, Brees also structured his contracts to run year-to-year, rather than tying the Saints to him over four or five years. That acknowledged the possibility that he could fall off a cliff at any time, much like other aging passers did before him (see: Brett Favre and Peyton Manning). While Brees will leave sizable dead money hit behind once he retires, it won’t set the Saints back for a decade.

Earlier Tuesday afternoon, star quarterback Drew Brees gave New Orleans Saints fans something to cheer for. Brees announced his decision to return to the gridiron for the 2020 NFL season.

His decision comes early enough in the off-season for the Saints to plan accordingly. New Orleans now has a full month to address free agency concerns before the new league year kicks in. The team also has two months to figure out its future through the draft.

After Brees announced his decision to return, his Saints teammates made it clear they’re fired up for the 2020 season. Star wide receiver Michael Thomas took to Twitter with a message for his quarterback.

Peat is set to potential test the market in free agency this year, and that begs the question: should the Saints attempt to re-sign him? If not, are there any other options for a...
