The rest of the NFL can dispense with any notions of luring
Drew Brees away from the team 鈥?and city 鈥?where the star quarterback has
flourished for more than a decade now.

Two people familiar with the contract say Brees has agreed to a
two-year Justin
Verlander Jersey
, $50 million extension with the New Orleans
Saints. The people say $27 million is guaranteed in the first year.

The people spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity on Tuesday
because the agreement has not been announced.

Brees, who turned 39 in January, was due to become a free agent on Wednesday.
But he has said he wanted to finish his career in New Orleans, where he has
played since 2006, won a Super Bowl and led what has been one of the most
productive offenses in the NFL since he and coach Sean Payton arrived.

"I'll be here as long as they'll have me," Brees said after last season ended
in January.

Now his return is assured to a team that came within one play of advancing to
last season's NFC championship game, falling at Minnesota when the Vikings
scored an unlikely Panthers Game
Jerseys
, 61-yard touchdown on the final play of their
divisional-round NFC playoff game.

Last season, Brees completed an NFL-record 72 percent of his passes for 4,334
yards and 23 touchdowns against eight interceptions. He ranked fourth in the NFL
in yards passing and the Saints ranked second in the NFL in total offense.

A second-round draft choice by San Diego in 2001, Brees has passed for 70,445
yards and 488 touchdowns in 17 seasons 鈥?58,097 yards and 408 touchdowns in 12
seasons with New Orleans.

He has passed for more than 5,000 yards in a season five times Authentic
Ronald Jones II Jersey
, most recently in 2016. In 2011, Brees was
at the helm of an offense that gained an NFL-record 7,474 yards.

By the time Brees' new contract expires, he could very well be the NFL's
all-time leader in yards and touchdowns passing. Currently, Peyton Manning holds
those marks with 71,940 yards and 539 touchdowns. Brett Favre also is ahead of
Brees 鈥?for now 鈥?with 71, 838 yards and 508 TDs passing.

Brees has been New Orleans' franchise player during the franchise's greatest
era Sampo
Ranta Blackhawks Jersey
, which has been highlighted by a Super
Bowl championship in the 2009 season and five other playoff seasons.

He arrived when his NFL future was uncertain, as was the future of Hurricane
Katrina-ravaged New Orleans. Coming off throwing-shoulder surgery, Brees led the
Saints 鈥?who had gone 3-13 the year before he arrived 鈥?to their first NFC title
game.

In the process, Brees and the Saints became a symbol of New Orleans'
resurgence after the storm that flooded 80 percent of the city, flourishing
together during the past decade-plus of recovery.

"Certainly, the relationship with this city will always play a strong role in
me wanting to be here and ... wanting to finish my career here," Brees
said.

Jamar Taylor’s trade to Arizona is official.

Cleveland traded another of their starting quarterbacks to the Cardinals on
Saturday for a sixth-round draft pick in 2020. The teams agreed to the swap on
Friday and had to work out final details before it was announced.

The Browns previously shopped Taylor and finally worked out a deal with the
Cardinals Connor
Williams Jersey
, who will likely start him opposite star Patrick
Peterson.

Taylor’s departure seemed destined when the Browns signed several defensive
backs in free agency and selected Ohio State cornerback Denzel Ward with the No.
4 overall pick in the draft.

Taylor started 15 games last season on the other side of the field from Jason
McCourty, who was traded to New England in March for a 2018 seventh-round
pick.

The 27-year-old Taylor was acquired by the Browns in 2016 from Miami. He had
three interceptions in 2017.
