Drew Brees has reportedly agreed to a two-year, $50million deal with the New Orleans Saints.

Brees, 41, has been with the Saints since 2006 and next season is set to be his 20th in the NFL.

NFL Network reported on Tuesday that Brees had agreed to a two-year contract with the Saints worth roughly $50m.

Brees led the Saints to the playoffs last season before they fell to the Minnesota Vikings in an NFC wildcard clash.

The quarterback threw for 2,979 yards and 27 touchdowns in 11 games, having been sidelined with a thumb injury.
