Drew Brees said Monday that he plans to play out the final year of his contract with the New Orleans Saints in 2017.
The 37-year-old quarterback said he'll then consider his future one year at a time in order to put forth his "absolute best effort" toward winning the NFC South and a second Super Bowl title with New Orleans.
"Listen, so I signed a one-year extension, so that was this year and then next year," Brees said. "And so I plan on playing that out and just allowing things to take form and take shape here for next year and putting forth my absolute best effort to help us win a division championship and then a world championship.
"And then, again, just one year at a time, and that's not a lack of commitment or anything like that. It's just, I just want to focus on what's right in front of me."
Brees spent much of last offseason discussing his contract before agreeing to an extension in September that prevented him from becoming a free agent until after the 2017 season.
