Drew Brees ENDS WAR WITH EX-TEAMMATE After Losing $160k In Bad Investment

Drew Brees -- ENDS WAR WITH EX-TEAMMATE ... After Losing $160k In Bad Investment

EXCLUSIVE


Drew Brees is finally calling off the dogs on a former Saints teammate who allegedly screwed him out of $160k ... more than a year after battling the guy in court ... TMZ Sports has learned.

Brees had sued former Saints longsnapper Kevin Houser -- claiming the guy (who became a licensed security broker) duped him into buying $160k worth of tax credits from a defunct movie studio that turned out to be bogus and worthless.

Houser had fired back -- saying he NEVER had a deal to represent Brees in the transaction and says Drew simply made a stupid investment and should just take his loss like a man. 

Now, we've learned ... the two sides have struck a settlement -- and though the terms are confidential, it's pretty safe to assume Houser probably had to kick over some cash.

We reached out to both sides for comment -- so far, no word back.

For the record, Brees signed a $100 million contract in 2012 ... so clearly, this wasn't about the money -- it was personal. Watch TMZ Sports on FS1 Get the new TMZ Sports app!
