Well that escalated quickly.
Former New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees and NBC have reportedly parted ways one year into their contract:
NEWS: Drew Brees done at NBC after one year as an NFL TV analyst, The Post has learned.https://t.co/jKFmfAtoKQ— Andrew Marchand (@AndrewMarchand) May 15, 2022
The Saints weren’t lacking for news with the team formally announcing and finalizing the contract for WR Jarvis Landry earlier this afternoon. When the team posted a portion of Landry’s first press conference as a member of the Saints, Brees commented on Instagram, “Man..signing [Jarvis Landry] and [Tyrann Mathieu] makes me want to come back and play again!!! Great additions…leaders and players!”
Only minutes later, Brees took to Twitter to throw all of Who Dat Nation into a tizzy:
Despite speculation from media about my future this fall, I’m currently undecided. 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— Drew Brees (@drewbrees) May 15, 2022
There it is straight from the horse’s mouth: Brees is undecided about his 2022 future and may play football again.
Could that be for the New Orleans Saints? Could he be Jameis Winston’s backup? Would he be a starter? Would he play somewhere else? What is going on? What is Drew Brees going to do? WHY CAN’T WE JUST HAVE A NORMAL MONTH OF SAINTS NEWS.
