The New Orleans Saints will enter the 2021 NFL season without a familiar face under center.

Quarterback Drew Brees, who spent 15 out of his 20 seasons in the NFL with New Orleans, retired at the end of last year as arguably the greatest player in franchise history. A five-time All-Pro and 13-time Pro Bowler, Brees led the league in passing yards a record seven times and in passing touchdowns a record four times. Brees, the MVP of Super Bowl XLIV, led the Saints to their first and only Super Bowl title in a 31-17 victory over the Indianapolis Colts in 2010.

Last season, Hill served as Brees’ backup and even played in eight games, four of which were starts. He threw for 928 yards and four touchdowns and led the Saints to a 3-1 record.

Winston, on the other hand, was a starter for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 2015-19. He made four appearances, but only attempted 11 passes during his first season with the Saints.

New Orleans brought up Winston on a one-year deal for 2021. The Saints also gave Hill a one-year extension earlier in the offseason.

The team is expected to report to training camp sometime during the last week of July.
