When it becomes official, it will be the third deal that the QB has inked with the Saints. He signed with the Saints in 2006, and after his first six-year, $60 million contract ran out, the team gave him the franchise tag and then that became a five-year, $100 million contract. Brees has played four of the five years of that deal.
