Brees Worth the Money?

Updated: May 29, 2012

On July 13 2012, the New Orleans Saints and Drew Brees finally came to an agreement regarding his future with the team – and the answer came in the form of a $100 million, five-year contract. Out of the entire agreement, $40 million will be the sum he takes home in the first year of the contract – and the remaining $60 million will be paid throughout the rest of the agreement should Brees stay with the Saints.

Fans everywhere are astounded by the amount of money Brees is being paid – and many are wondering if the Saints just made a huge financial mistake. Sports reporters are the first to point out that Brees had the advantage in the contract talks – and it is apparent that the Saints place much of their value in the quarterback.

According to the Bleacher Report, 33-year-old Drew Brees is the highest paid player in the NFL’s history. However, looking at his stats on ESPN, he set plenty of records for the 2011 season – including 7 consecutive 300-yard games, 13 300-yard games and a 71.2-completetion percentage. Still, with his record-breaking season and talent, is he worth $100 million?

Let’s hear your thoughts!
