Report: Drew Brees to join NBC Sports at completion of NFL Career
New Orleans Saints Quarterback Drew Brees just signed a new two-year contract last month worth $50 million and it appears that’ll be the last contract he ever signs with the Saints.
According to the New York Post, Brees has agreed to join NBC Sports in the booth at the completion of his NFL career.
The report says Brees will be groomed to be the potential replacement for Cris Collinsworth on Sunday Night Football.
Prior to that, Brees is expected to start as a game analyst on Notre Dame football and as a studio analyst for Football Night in America before eventually taking over for Collinsworth.
Whether he starts his life after football following this season or next remains to be seen.
Brees reportedly picked NBC over a $6 million offer from ESPN who ironically televised both Monday Night Football games in which he broke the league records for all-time passing yards and touchdowns.
