(WVUE) - As if there was any doubt who our No. 1 player on the countdown would be.
Drew Brees may be 39, but he's still the straw that stirs the drink for the New Orleans Saints. The best to ever don the Black and Gold, signed a two-year contract this offseason with the club. Extending his career just a couple of more seasons.
2018 could be historic year for Brees. He sits just 1,495 yards away from passing Peyton Manning on the NFL all-time leading passer list.
The team he leads, is also a legitimate Super Bowl contender. One more ring, would be the icing on the cake of this Hall of Famer's career.
