Former New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees recently made an unfortunate admission about his health that has football fans feeling sorrow.

It’s been three years since Drew Brees announced his retirement following an illustrious playing career that spanned 20 years (2001 to 2020). The Super Bowl 44-winning quarterback retired in 2021 as the all-time leader in passing yards (80,358) and passing touchdowns (571), though Tom Brady shattered both those records before his 2023 retirement.

On Thursday, Brees stated that he “probably would’ve played another three years” if it weren’t for a right shoulder/arm injury that forced him to retire. He even considered coming out of retirement, per ESPN’s Katherine Terrell:

“Honestly, man, if my right arm was still working, I probably would’ve played another three years. My body feels great. My body can play. My right arm can’t. Unfortunately that’s what kind of forced me to step away. And it was time too.”

“At the end of the day, it’s like, how capable…am I to do the job, right? I would’ve run QB draws. I would’ve done whatever. I would’ve done some veer option. We would’ve pulled out all the stops. I was ready. Pull out the high school playbook.”
