Drew Brees says he 'may play football again:' former QB Saints 'currently hesitant' about his future

Drew Brees says he ‘may play football again:’ former QB Saints ‘currently hesitant’ about his future

New Orleans Saints Legend Drew Brees hung up his boots last March and accepted a job as an analyst for NBC. End of this week , The New York Post reported Brees will not be working with NBC in 2022, which prompted the former quarterback to take to Twitter and talk about his future. Although he said the reports were inaccurate, he added that a return to the field was a possibility.

Despite media speculation about my future this fall, I am currently hesitant. tweet press. “I might work for NBC, I might play football again, I might focus on business and philanthropy, I might coach a pickleball, or an adult tour, or coach my kids or all of the above. I’ll tell you.”

On Monday morning, New Saints coach Dennis Allen was asked about Brees’ tweet, and said he thought the comment was a joke.

“It was my wife who told me that because I don’t follow social media,” Allen said, via WDSU. So I thought, ‘Okay, that’s interesting. That’s going to raise some questions tomorrow at the golf tournament. “Yes, but sure, I think it was a joke comment and we certainly haven’t had any conversations about it.”

If we’re going to take Brees’ comments about returning to football seriously, we’ll have to do the same with his thoughts about joining the Pickleball Tour. The 43-year-old sure misses playing football, but where would he play if he were to come back? Saints signed James Winston On a multi-year extension this off-season Andy Dalton To serve as his reserve and still have it Tsum Hill And Ian Book In the list as well. Could Bryce come back wearing a different outfit?

It’s hard to tell if Brees is serious about a potential return to football, but now that he’s brought it up in his tweet, questions will continue to be asked. If he returns to the field, Brees is probably best suited to wait until a spot opens in the middle of the season.

When Bryce announced his retirement last year, he did so as the NFL’s all-time leader in career yards passing, completion and completion percentage. He has five All-Pro Awards to his name, two Offensive Player of the Year and MVP awards from Super Bowl XLIV.
