New Orleans Saints Quarterback Drew Brees already has his post-playing career lined up.
The longtime Saints quarterback has signed a broadcasting deal with NBC, sources told Andrew Marchand of the New York Post.
It was just a few days ago that ESPN was chasing Brees, and apparently NBC had a more appealing offer.
Brees will be “groomed as the potential replacement for Cris Collinsworth” on ‘Sunday Night Football’ broadcasts, sources told Marchand.
Of course, this deal won’t take effect until after Brees decides to hang up his cleats.
He’s back in New Orleans for at least one more season. Saints coach Sean Payton recently let slip that Brees was “coming back for his final season,” although it’s possible he misspoke.
