2. New Orleans Saints
With Drew Brees turning 42 this January and dealing with the injury pang in 2020, it’s only a matter of time before the legendary quarterback says goodbye to NOLA.
Sean Payton. Dak Prescott. Need I say more?
Though Prescott grew up a Dallas Cowboys fan, the Louisiana native grew up closer to the Saints and played high school ball at Haughton, Louisiana. Could the hometown kid be marching back home?
The New Orleans Saints are known for their high-octane offense. Dak Prescott has proven he can launch the football and pull up big numbers on the stat sheet. Head coach Sean Payton isn’t shy about landing a top-tier quarterback, rolling the dice back in 2006. Payton and Brees took the Super Bowl prize in 2009.
Prescott, who figures to make a full recovery, is entering his prime NFL years. For his career so far, he owns 106 touchdown passes, 17,634 passing yards, 24 rushing scores, and a quarterback rating of 97.3.
If Brees retires and heads to the NBC booth for 2021, the Saints and Prescott pairing is a sound option for both camps. Remember, the city of New Orleans almost landed Tom Brady. The quarterback was interested, but Brees wasn’t retiring. Clearly, TB 12 approves what the Saints are all about.
