Is this the end of his career then?  Sean Peyton said in training camp that it would be Brees final year, but then had to walk that all the way back.  I suspect, unless he can return for the playoffs, that this just might be it.  However, realizing how competitive Brees is, I also wouldn't be surprised if he came back in 2021.

I think that depends on how serious the Saints are about Taysom Hill being an actual Quarterback. I think he comes back next year (barring a deep playoff run) to try to go out on "his terms." However, at his age, "his terms" aren't necessarily realistic.

Unless. Brees is going to play for free, I have no idea how the Saints can bring him back next year. It already looks like they’re going to have purge their roster next year. 

Will be one of the more entertaining teams to watch this offseason and how they handle their cap situation.

The Broncos are heading into tomorrow’s game against the Saints with an unprecedented challenge: They don’t have a single quarterback.

All of the quarterbacks on the Broncos’ roster have been ruled out of Sunday’s game because they were exposed to COVID-19, according to multiple reports. Broncos backup quarterback Jeff Driskel has tested positive for COVID-19, and the report says all of the Broncos’ other quarterbacks have been in close contact with Driskel, with no one wearing masks.

It’s unclear what the Broncos will do. It’s not feasible to bring in a quarterback from the outside in less than 24 hours. So unless the NFL postpones the game, the Broncos would have to have a position player line up at quarterback. Broncos running back Royce Freeman appears to be the leading contender.

The NFL has cracked down on the Saints after viral videos showed them celebrating in their locker room without wearing masks. The Saints have been stripped of their seventh-round draft pick and fined $500,000, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

The violations took place after the Saints beat the Buccaneers 38-3 in Week 9. Videos, including at least one posted on the Saints’ official social media outlets, showed Saints players and coaches yelling, laughing and hugging each other in the locker room without masks afterward.

All of the Broncos’ quarterbacks are out of today’s game because one tested positive for COVID-19 and the others had close contact with them, and so Denver is taking drastic measures. Kendall Hinton, a wide receiver on the practice squad, will be the Broncos’ starting quarterback today against the Saints.

Hinton was a high school quarterback who started two games at quarterback for Wake Forest as a true freshman in 2015. After that he spent three seasons primarily as a backup quarterback before moving to receiver in 2019.

For his entire college football career, Hinton had 1,504 passing yards, a 53 percent completion rate, eight touchdowns and seven interceptions. The 6-foot, 195-pound Hinton has never played in an NFL game at either quarterback or wide receiver. His first game today will be in most unusual circumstances.

If they play poorly enough in their final three games, the Jets can set an NFL record for futility.

After falling to 0-13 on the season with a 40-3 loss to the Seahawks on Sunday, the Jets have now been outscored this season by a total of 393-183. Their -210 point differential is by far the worst in the NFL this season.

But it’s not yet the worst of all time. That distinction belongs to the 1976 Buccaneers, who were outscored by 287 points that season. That was the first season in Buccaneers franchise history, and that expansion team is often named as the worst team in NFL history.

Can the Jets break the record? They’d need to be outscored by 78 points over their final three games. That won’t be easy — it’s an average of 26 points a game, and the Jets have only been outscored by 26 or more points three times all season. But the Jets just might be bad enough to do it. They can get started with a blowout loss to the Rams on Sunday, when they’re 17-point underdogs.
