Saints, Drew Brees agree to $50M deal


Meanwhile, Drew Brees is set to end one of the finest careers in National Football League history with the team where he made his name.

The veteran quarterback has agreed to a two-year, $50 million contract to remain with the Saints, NFL Media first reported Tuesday. But a deal had been expected in February and the two sides were unable to quickly complete a contract after Tom Condon, Brees' agent, met with the Saints at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Air Canada says computer issues have been resolved
At around 11:15 a.m., Victoria Airport reported that Air Canada self-serve check-in kiosks were once again operational. The issues were resolved shortly after 2:00 p.m., but customers were left reeling from the technical meltdown.

This is now the second time that Brees has signed a short-term extension with New Orleans, after he signed a one-year, $24.25 million extension before the start of the 2016 season.

"I'll be here as long as they'll have me", Brees said after last season ended in January. He is coming off a productive campaign where he hauled in 57 catches for 520 receiving yards with 10 touchdown receptions, which marked the fourth time in his career that he has tallied 10 or more touchdown receptions.

A reunion with Graham seems like a very realistic possibility, with several reports surfacing over the past week that New Orleans is a serious contender for him now that his contract has expired with the Seattle Seahawks. Brett Favre also is ahead of Brees - for now - with 71, 838 yards and 508 TDs passing. All of that money would have hit this year's salary cap if Brees hadn't signed a new deal by March 14.

Add in a young, improved defense (42 sacks, 20 interceptions, five fumble recoveries, 336.5 yards and 20.4 points allowed per game), and the Saints appear poised to make another push with Brees.
