Drew Brees becomes fourth player in NFL history to throw at least 500 TD passes

If the Los Angeles Chargers would have known this, Drew Brees would likely still be playing in the state of California, rather than in Louisiana with the New Orleans Saints.

Brees was the second quarterback taken in the 2001 NFL Draft by the Chargers and spent five years with the franchise. Then, Brees went to New Orleans and he got a jolt in his career, which has now led him to a historically great achievement: 500 passing touchdowns.

Brees accomplished this on Sunday when the Saints defeated the Green Bay Packers, 26-17. The win pushes the Saints’ record on the season to 4-2, as the former Purdue Boilermakers signal caller completed 27 of 38 passes for 331 yards and his 500th career touchdown pass.

Brees has proved his naysayers wrong coming out of college throughout his career and this is just the icing on the cake. He’s likely to be a future Hall-of-Famer, as he has won numerous awards throughout his career already, including a Super Bowl victory, in which he earned Super Bowl XLIV’s MVP.
