New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees has reportedly received interest from at least one network looking to add him as a game analyst. Brees recently completed his nineteenth season in the league, but has not decided to officially retire yet. ESPN has reported that they were not the network in question, but they have reached out to the future NFL Hall of Fame quarterback.
“Drew has not spoken with them or anyone about any new opportunities,” one source told ESPN.
“Until such time as a decision is made about next season, he will not be engaging in any conversations regarding or considering any new opportunities,” the source added.
Saints Coach Sean Payton also told ESPN’s Sunday NFL Countdown that he thinks Brees will return to the team for another season. He also noted that he plans to meet with Brees today.
Brees and Payton’s season ended earlier this month with an overtime loss to the Minnesota Vikings at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. The New Orleans Saints became both the first 13-3 team to have to play during wild card weekend and the first 13-3 team to lose a wild card game. Moving forward, the San Francisco 49ers will host the Green Bay Packers for the NFC Championship on Sunday.
