Saints' Drew Brees rejects ESPN, selects NBC for future broadcasting career

Share

According to Andrew Marchand of New York Post, Brees is set to sign with NBC Sports over ESPN that will make him part of the National Football League telecast team 'far after he finishes playing'. He is now 41 years old and recently, he signed a massive deal with the New Orleans Saints that will keep him in the league for two more years.

The 41-year-old Brees selected NBC over ESPN.

Drew Brees is a sure-fire Pro Football Hall of Fame member the second he becomes eligible but is yet to retire.

At the end of March, it was reported that Drew Brees had a massive offer on the table from ESPN to join the "Monday Night Football" crew after he made a decision to retire. Marchand wrote that according to sources, Brees will be "groomed as the potential replacement for Cris Collinsworth". NBC is reportedly planning to have Mike Tirico take over for Al Michaels as its play-by-play announcer following the Super Bowl in 2022, and Brees could partner with Tirico at that point.

OPEC+ formulates a two-year oil cut deal to be implemented gradually
The OPEC+ plan yesterday was to cut 10M BPD in May and June with calls for the USA and other producers to cut a futher 5M BPD. Opec said the cuts would be eased to eight million barrels a day between July and December.


Brees won't join the Sunday Night Football broadcast out of the box, though.

Brees is expected to begin with NBC as a game analyst for Notre Dame football and a studio analyst on "Football Night in America".

ESPN was seeking Brees as it tries to overhaul its "Monday Night Football" team.

ESPN is reportedly considering in-house candidates Dan Orlovsky, Louis Riddick, and Brian Griese, along with external options including Kurt Warner and Nate Burleson, for the analyst role. Not to mention, with Tony Romo getting massive amounts of money every year, we can just imagine how much Brees could stand to make.
