If Drew Brees decides to suit up for a team in 2020, he only will put on the black and gold uniform of the New Orleans Saints, he told NFL Network. The 41-year-old is a free agent and must choose whether to retire or to return for his 20th NFL season, which would be his 15th in New Orleans.

"I have never been in the situation where I was mulling over the thought of ," said Brees, a 13-time Pro Bowl selection. "To me, each one of these contracts, I don't know how many it's been with the Saints, I've played with them 14 years. It's not a matter of if it gets done, it's when. At this stage of my career, it's not a given that I'm coming back every year, but when that time comes, I'll always be a Saint." General manager Mickey Loomis said earlier this week that the Saints would welcome his return.

Brees led the Saints to the Super Bowl championship following the 2009 season and could want another chance, even though he reportedly is being pursued for a television analyst role. The Saints lost in overtime to the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC wild-card game this season and dropped a controversial NFC championship game to the Los Angeles Rams in 2018.

"I feel like we have all the pieces in place," he told NFL Network. "We have a great foundation. Great culture. We have all the makings of a championship team." Brees is the NFL's all-time leader in several statistical categories, including passing yards (77,416), touchdown passes (547) and completions (6,867).
