The New Orleans Saints and record-setting quarterback Drew Brees agreed to a new deal on Friday reportedly worth $100 million over five years.
Brees confirmed the signing on Twitter “Deal is done! Love you, Who DatNation. See you soon.”
The six-time Pro-Bowl quarterback’s contract is worth $40 million in the first year and includes $60 million in guaranteed money, according to a report on NFL.com.
Last season, Brees broke Dan Marino’s record for passing yards with 5,476 and completed 71.2 percent of his passes, breaking his own record.
“Now we must turn our focus to getting ready for the start of training camp and to keeping with our goal of being the first team in NFL history to host and play in a Super Bowl,” Saints owner Tom Benson stated in a press release.
