Considering Brees rethinks about his retirement plans, there will be many teams ready to sign a deal with the former Saint’s star player. On the other hand, the New Orleans Saints’ quarterback positions seem full, with Jameis Winston and Andy Dalton on their side. Also, Taysom Hill and Ian Book are on the roster as well. So, there is a probability we see him wearing a different jersey.

The 43-year-old, left the game last year as the NFL’s all-time leader in career passing yards and completions. He has been awarded the MVP in Super Bowl XLIV and has an overall 5 All-Pro honors and 2 Offensive Player of the Year Awards.
