Drew Christopher Brees is an American football quarterback for the New Orleans Saints of the National Football League.
After a prolific college football career at Purdue University, he was chosen by the San Diego Chargers with the first pick in the second round of the 2001 NFL Draft.
He left college as one of the most-decorated players in Purdue and Big Ten Conference history, establishing two NCAA records, 13 Big Ten Conference records and 19 Purdue University records.
He remains the Big Ten record-holder in virtually every passing category, including completions, yards and touchdowns.
Brees started his career with the San Diego Chargers, earning the starting job in 2002 and making the Pro Bowl in 2004.
Nine months after suffering a bad dislocation in his shoulder joint and a 360 degree tear of his labrum and rotator cuff, Brees signed with the New Orleans Saints as a free agent, where he met immediate success, earning eight trips to the Pro Bowl and leading the Saints to their first Super Bowl.
Since joining the Saints in 2006, he has led all NFL quarterbacks in touchdowns, passing yards and 300-yard games.
