New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees has no plans on leaving to play for another team at the end of the season, the future Hall of Famer told Hardwick & Richards on KLSD-AM in San Diego on Tuesday.

"I'll handle 2018 when 2018 gets here. But right now I'm in the moment. I'm in 2017," Brees said. "... I don't plan on leaving New Orleans ever."

Brees, who is making $24.5 million this season, is in the final year of a deal that voids automatically after the season, but he has repeatedly said he plans to play out this year and worry about it after the season.

"We just have a great understanding here. Listen, we're going to go through this season, and we'll revisit it in the offseason," he said on the show. "Right now, I'm in the moment."

Detroit quarterback Matthew Stafford's received a five-year, $135 million deal with $92 million guaranteed -- the biggest contract in NFL history -- in late August.
