Will he or won’t he?
That is the question for the New Orleans Saints this offseason.
Will the future Hall of Fame quarterback Drew Brees return for a 16th season with the Saints?
Will the Big Easy icon ride off into the sunset before the start of the 2021 NFL season?
Let’s examine the NFL special odds surrounding both questions.

Will Drew Brees Retire?
There’s rampant speculation that Brees is going to hang up his cleats. The good news for New Orleans is that the franchise will find out sooner rather than later just what Brees decides.
Saints general manager Mickey Loomis said recently that the franchise is awaiting Brees’ decision, much like last year.
“I don’t think it’s a lot different from last year. We’ll wait for him,” Loomis said Wednesday.
Brady vs. Mahomes Super Bowl 55 analysis.
Personally, I’m leaning toward Brees hanging it up. The former Purdue star looked like a shell of his former self in New Orleans’ 30-20 NFC Divisional round loss against Tampa Bay.
The future Hall of Famer went 19-for-34 for 134 passing yards with three interceptions and one touchdown. More importantly, Brees clearly lacked the arm strength necessary to complete any deep throws.
Brees went 9-3 while completing 70.5% of his passes. Brees threw 24 touchdown passes and six interceptions while passing for 2,942 yards. Still, reports say the most likely scenario is that Brees will retire.

Will Drew Brees work as a TV analyst?
If you didn’t know before, now you do. Drew Brees already has a contract awaiting him to become an analyst at NBC. The network was set to hire Brees if he called it quits prior to last season and that deal is still in place. If Brees does call it quits, I’m expecting the future Hall of Famer to make a smooth transition to the TV booth.
