Over the weekend, Drew Brees made the tough, expected call, and announced that he's retiring from the NFL after 20 season. Of those 20 years, he spent the last 15 in New Orleans running the offense for the Saints.
New Orleans has been so special for Brees and that will never change. You can tell just how much the city means to him and his family, with the quarterback sending his official goodbye to the fans in an emotional video.
If you're a Saints fan, we don't blame you at all if you've got some tears rolling down your face. In the clip above, Brees himself was overcome with emotion. How in the world can you say goodbye to not only the game you love, but the city that welcomed you in with open arms.
Saints fans will always love Brees, especially after he helped the team win the Super Bowl back in 2010. Next stop for Brees? Canton, Ohio.
