Drew Brees has given the New Orleans Saints a valuable parting gift ahead of his expected retirement.

Brees recently renegotiated his Saints contract to the league minimum for 2021. That will allow the team to carry him on the roster past June 1 and would spread out the salary-cap impact upon his retirement.

Brees has not officially announced his retirement yet. However, it’s been widely reported that he will, and his actions after the Saints’ playoff exit provided further evidence of that.

While this is pretty straightforward administrative business, it’s important in that it shows Brees is moving ahead with his plans to retire. He’s also making it easier for the Saints to have roster flexibility when he does, which makes sense given how tightly knit he is with the city and organization.

The *real* reason this latest Senate retirement announcement matters .
Alabama is, um, not a swing state. Former President Donald Trump won the state by more than 25 points in 2020 and Tommy Tuberville (R) crushed Sen. Doug Jones (D) by 20. © Provided by CNN So, the not-all-that surprising news Monday that Alabama Sen. Richard Shelby (R) would not run for a seventh-term next November doesn't really change the overall battle for Senate control. Democrats just aren't likely to win an open seat race in Alabama -- particularly if Roy Moore (R) is gone from the scene. But that doesn't mean Shelby's retirement doesn't matter, or won't have an impact on the Senate landscape going forward.
