Drew Brees has 2-3 more years says former Saints teammate
Drew Brees is coming off of an MVP-caliber 2018 campaign, but at the age of 40, just how much time does he have left?
Well, former New Orleans Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma thinks that the quarterback has two or three more years remaining.
“I think that Drew has, in my objective opinion, about another 2-3 years left,” Vilma told TMZ Sports. “If you ask Drew, he’s got like another 10 or 15 years left.”
Brees’ future with the Saints has become a big topic of discussion after Teddy Bridgewater turned down the Miami Dolphins’ starting job to return to New Orleans as a backup, an indication that Brees might not be playing for much longer.
Of course, that could just be Bridgewater’s logical opinion more than anything else, because you wouldn’t think a 40-year-old would have that more more time left to play professional football.
Then again, you have Tom Brady, who just led the New England Patriots to their sixth Super Bowl title, so who knows?
Brees threw for 3,992 yards, 32 touchdowns, and just five interceptions while completing an NFL record 74.4 percent of his passes and registering a passer rating of 115.7 en route to a Pro Bowl appearance.
The Austin, Tx. native has spent the last 13 years of his career with the Saints, making 11 Pro Bowls and earning a First-Team All-Pro selection. Most importantly, Brees led New Orleans to a championship during the 2009-10 campaign.
The Saints won 13 games and captured the NFC South division title this past year, finishing with the best record in the league. However, they suffered a devastating loss to the Los Angeles Rams in the NFC Championship Game.
