We now know where at least one future Hall-of-Fame quarterback will be playing in the 2020 NFL season. Drew Brees took to Instagram to announce he'll be playing another season this fall, but surprisingly, this news hasn't impacted the New Orleans Saints' odds to win Super Bowl LV, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's Live Super Bowl Odds.

New Orleans was available at +1200 as of February 3rd, and despite Brees' announcement, the Saints' odds to win Super Bowl LV haven't budged as of the afternoon of Feb. 18.

Saints Super Bowl Odds

The Saints currently have the fourth-best odds to win it all, trailing the Kansas City Chiefs (+650), Baltimore Ravens (+700) and San Francisco 49ers (+900).

They are ahead of the New England Patriots (+1400), who are still awaiting a definitive decision from their own future Hall-of-Fame passer, Tom Brady.

While this news almost certainly means Teddy Bridgewater will be playing elsewhere in 2020, the Saints should be getting a full, healthy season from emerging pass-rusher Marcus Davenport, who went down in Week 14 and missed the rest of the 2019-20 year.

These odds will likely continue to shift as we approach free agency and the 2020 NFL Draft, but if New Orleans makes the right moves, Brees should be firmly in contention for his second Super Bowl ring.
