The NFL Network has run its top 100 players of 2012 and Saints quarterback Drew Brees was ranked No. 2.

Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers was ranked by his peers as the top overall player in the NFL at this time.

Brees set an NFL record for passing yards in a season, surpassing Dan Marino’s 1984 mark of 5,084 yards. New Orleans’ signal-caller finished the year with 5,476 yards with 46 touchdowns to just 14 interceptions.

He has set more than 50 NFL records and led New Orleans to its first-ever Super Bowl during the 2009 season.
