The New Orleans Saints have finally did what they needed to do for months now. Sign Drew Brees. Today both sides have come to an agreement on a 5-year $100 million contract, making him the highest paid player in NFL history. Brees will receive $60 million of that money in the first three years of his contract, $40 million in the first year alone and a $37 million signing bonus.
When the deal was done Brees wrote on Twitter:
“Deal is Done! Love you, Who Dat Nation. See you soon!”
Jimmy Graham wrote:
“Congrats @drewbrees…very happy for you, your family and all the Whodat Nation….let’s go get the trophy”
With the Brees deal done the Saints only focus now is representing the NFC in their own home in Super Bowl XLVII this year.
