Unlike Adrian Peterson (returning from knee surgery), Peyton Manning (neck surgeries) and Kenny Britt (knee surgeries), Drew Brees inking a $100-million dollar contract (getting paid) fails to drastically impact his fantasy football value.

Quarterback Drew Brees has agreed to a new five-year deal with the Saints worth $100M, according to Chris Mortensen of ESPN. $60M is guaranteed, with a jaw-dropping $40M coming in the first year.

The Drew Brees – Saints negotiations have finally come to an end. According to Chris Mortenson, the deal is for 5 years/$100 million. We all figured this was inevitable, I am still surprised by the $60 million guaranteed considering his injury history and age. The two factors that pushed the negotiations to this point.
