By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Drew Brees may be willing to take a hometown discount. The New Orleans Saints free agent quarterback would like to play the 2020 season.

It’s basically a lock that he will return to the Saints. However, the price is up in the air right now.

Rapoport believes that Brees will re-sign with the team for a number around $25 million. He was previously paid $25 million in the two-year deal that expired with the 2019 season.

Brees has already said that he intends to re-sign with the Saints.

He is is expected to be the team’s starter in 2020, before the reigns get transferred to Taysom Hill, who is a restricted free agent. The Mr. Do Everything (Hill) will see a lesser role in the upcoming season, as he focuses primarily on a quarterback role.

The team is expected to let Teddy Bridgewater walk as a free agent later this month.

The 41-year-old Austin, Texas native is a 13-time Pro Bowler, who is one of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history. Brees has several NFL records, including being the league’s all-time passer with 77,416 yards.

He has spent the last 14 years with the Saints after spending the first five years of his career with the San Diego Chargers. Brees has been with the Saints since before the 2006 season.

This past season, he appeared in 11 games, including 11 starts. He went 8-3 in those games.

He went 281 of 378 for 2,979 yards with 27 touchdowns and four interceptions.

The 2,979 yards were the fewest passing yards in a season since the 2003 season with the Chargers when he had 2,108 yards.

In his playing career, he has appeared in 275 games, including 274 starts. As a starter, he has gone 163-111.

He has also gone 6,867 of 10,161 for 77,416 yards. He has also thrown 547 touchdowns and 237 interceptions.
