The San Diego Chargers drafted Drew Brees out of Purdue during the second round of the 2001 NFL Draft. He did not play much at all during his rookie season, but was named the Chargers starting QB for Week One of the 2002 NFL season. Unimpressed with Brees' play, the Chargers acquired Philip Rivers during an Draft-Day-Trade with the New York Giants. This seemed to have lit a fire inside Brees as he threw for 3,159 passing yards, 27 touchdowns and led the Chargers to a 12-4 record and the AFC West Division Title. He followed that up with another outstanding year in 2005 (3,576 passing yards and 24 TD passes) but a severe shoulder injury late in the year led to the end of his time in San Diego. Despite still recovering shoulder surgery, the New Orleans Saints decided to give Brees a shot and signed him to a six-year deal. The deal turned out to be quite a bargain for the Who Dat nation. Since joining the Saints in 2006, Brees has developed into one of the most prolific passers in NFL history. He has led the NFL in passing yards six times and touchdown passes four times. He has eclipsed the 4,000 yards mark in every year and the 5,000 yards mark four times. On February 7, 2010, Brees led the Saints to a 31-17 victory over the Colts in Super Bowl XLIV. It was the first Super Bowl Championship in team history. Brees was named SB XLIV MVP. Brees has been selected to play in eight NFL Pro Bowls. He holds every Saints passing record and is the fastest quarterback in to reach 40,000, 50,000 and 60,000 career passing yards. His 60,903 career passing yards is the fourth highest total in NFL history.
