Saints | Drew Brees doesn't reveal plans (Mon Jan 18, 01:19 AM) - Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees did not officially announce his retirement following the team's loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, Jan. 17, instead indicating he'd take 'an opportunity to think about the season' and make his decision later.

Our View: Jay Glazer had reported on Sunday that Brees was going to retire when the Saints season was done. They lost to the Buccaneers in the Divisional Round which means Brees may be retiring later this year. He'll take some time to come to a decision but things appear like he's leaning towards hanging his cleats up.
