(WVUE) - The deal is done. Drew Brees has reportedly signed a two-year deal worth $50 million win $27 million guaranteed, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapaport and Jane Slater.

Brees met with Saints management while in the building for Zach Strief's retirement.

The two-year deal is worth $50 million, with $27 million guaranteed, according to reporter Ian Rapoport.

In 2017, Brees led the Saints' resurgence to the playoffs with an NFL-record 72.0% completion mark, 4,334 yards, 23 touchdowns and 8 interceptions. The team's first playoff berth in 4 years was highlighted by the first home postseason win in 6 years before a last-second loss to the Vikings ended the run a week later.

2018 will be Brees' 13th season in New Orleans. He turned 39 on January 15th.
