  Five NFL players who have played their way into the franchise tag The 2019 NFL regular season is now one month away from its conclusion, which means free agency and all that comes with it is not too far away. It also means teams have to begin to determine who will get their franchise designation should they be inclined to hand out the tag. © Kim Klement-USA TODAY SportsMost NFL players are not fans of the franchise tag, and they could make an effort to get rid of it, but at least in 2020, it will remain.

With his third touchdown pass on Monday night against the Indianapolis Colts, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees became the NFL’s all-time touchdown king. Breaking Peyton Manning’s all-time record of 539 touchdown passes, Brees reached 540 with a five-yard strike to Josh Hill in the third quarter.

The excitement built as Brees connected with Michael Thomas in the second quarter to put the Saints up 10-0.

Finally, Brees passed Manning, moving into first on the all-time touchdown list with 540.

  Tom Brady sending message with ‘whole team about to figure it out’ quote? If nothing else, the optimistic quote from Brady should be well received by his teammates.

Brees, 38, has talked about playing well into his 40s, so by the time he’s finished this record will be even more ridiculous.

Heck, he already holds NFL records for career completions, passing yards, completion percentage and is bearing down on Brett Favre’s record for most passing attempts in a career.

Even if he never threw another pass, Brees is an all-time legend.

After he became the new NFL record holder for most career touchdown passes, Brees received high praise from the NFL community.
