Twice during the 2012 NFL regular season, we took a look at just how pass-happy the current state of affairs are in the NFL. Thanks to NFL.com’s milestone tracker we found out just how aired-out of a league this is, and while a million quarterbacks didn’t throw for 4,000 yards, 11 of them did, and that’s the most ever in a single season.

Drew Brees Agrees To A Five-Year, $100 Million Contract With The Saints, Is The New Salary King Of American Pro Sports
It was only a matter of time between the Saints and Drew Brees agreed to a contract extension, and today was finally that time. The staggering details of the deal, after the jump.
