Drew Brees Responds to Claims
Drew Brees Responds to Claims He’s Leaving NBC.
Hours after reports emerged that Drew Brees would not return to NBC in his role as a studio analyst.
Brees took to Twitter to set the record straight that his media—and football—future remained up in the air.
The New York Post‘s Andrew Marchand reported earlier Sunday that NBC and Brees had mutually agreed to part ways, with some discrepancy about what Brees’s role with the network would be.
Brees apparently envisioned a role as a color commentator, while the network wanted him as an analyst for Football Night in America.
Marchand’s report also notes that the network once saw Brees as the heir apparent to lead play-by-play analyst Cris Collinsworth as the color commentator for Sunday Night Football.
