KEY POINTS

  • Drew Brees ends his brief NBC stint and may return to NFL action
  • Brees reveals through social media that he has multiple options on the table
  • A reunion with the New Orleans Saints doesn't make sense at the moment

Drew Brees may not be entirely done with football even at the age of 43.

He called it a career last March and accepted a job to work as an analyst for NBC.

However, it appears his stint as a studio and game analyst has come to an end.

Brees and the network reportedly had a mutual agreement to part ways with NBC unable to offer the former Super Bowl champion many NFL games to cover, the Post reported.

It seems that Brees’ potential soured after NBC initially thought that he could develop into the heir apparent to Cris Collinsworth on “Sunday Night Football” games.

When word got out that the Super Bowl XLIV would no longer be working for NBC, Brees responded on social media with a curious response.

“Despite speculation from [the] media about my future this fall, I’m currently undecided,” Brees said. “I may work for NBC, I may play football again, I may focus on business and philanthropy, I may train for the pickleball tour, senior golf tour, coach my kids or all of the above. I’ll let you know.”

From the tweet of Brees, it is clear that he has options moving forward.

As far as returning to the NFL, it remains a possibility. However, this may depend on whether any team would be open to taking him in.

There are several teams in need of a play-caller, but an area of concern on the part of Brees is his age and the fact that he sat out the past months doing commentary for NBC.

Brees last played for the New Orleans Saints, but the team has since filled the quarterback position.

The Saints signed Jameis Winston to a multi-year extension and took in Andy Dalton to serve as the former’s backup.

Furthermore, the Saints have Taysom Hill and Ian Brook on the roster–meaning a reunion with the 2004 NFL Comeback Player of the Year is unlikely.

Should he return, Brees may suit up for another NFL team.
