Bio

Drew Brees is the starting quarterback for the New Orleans Saints. Brees is an eight-time Pro-Bowler and led the Saints to their first Super Bowl Victory in 2010.

EARLY YEARS

Brees was born on January 15, 1979 in Austin, Texas. He attended Westlake High School, where his record was 28-0-1 in the two years as a starter, including a 16-0 record and a state championship in 1996. Brees threw for 5,461 yards and 50 touchdowns in his high school career.

PURDUE UNIVERSITY

When he left the Big Ten Conference, Brees was the record holder in career passing yards, touchdown passes, total offensive yards, completions, and attempts. He finished fourth in voting for the Heisman Trophy in 1999 and third in 2000.

SAN DIEGO CHARGERS

Brees was drafted in the second round of the 2001 NFL Draft by the San Diego Chargers and became a full-time starter by the beginning of the 2002 NFL Season. After struggling his first few years, he was thought to be on his way out of San Diego when the team acquired Phillip Rivers during the 2004 NFL Draft. In that season, Brees led the team to a 12-4 record and was named the 2004 NFL Comeback Player of the Year.

He was franchise tagged before the 2005 season, but in the last game of the year tore his labrum.

NEW ORLEANS SAINTS

After interest was shown by the Saints and the Miami Dolphins, Brees signed a 6-year, $60-million deal with the Saints in March 2006.

Since joining the Saints, he has led all QBs in passing TDs and 300-yard passing games. Since 2008, Brees has thrown no less than 33 TDs and 4,300 yards in any season, including 2011, when he threw an NFL-record 5,476 yards to go along with 46 TD passes.

In 2009, Brees led the Saints to the franchise’s first Super Bowl victory over the Indianapolis Colts.
