Drew Brees has made it official. He'll be back with the New Orleans Saints for the 2020 season.

My feelings about the 2020 season! I look forward to the grind and the journey, for the reward at the end will be worth it!!! Love you #WhoDatNation. Let’s make another run at it!

Brees, 41, will return for his 20th season in the NFL. He was set to become an unrestricted free agent when the new league year started on March 18.

The Saints and Brees have not agreed on a new contract yet. Additionally, they'll also have to make decisions on their other two backup quarterbacks, unrestricted free agent Teddy Bridgewater and restricted free agent Taysom Hill.

So what does this mean for the Atlanta Falcons? After back-to-back 7-9 seasons, does the NFC South still run through our greatest rival Saints?
