After one 12 months at NBC, Drew Brees has reportedly left the network on the lookout for a special opportunity in broadcasting. Nonetheless, Brees himself didn’t confirm the news with a really strange tweet nearly two weeks ago, which left the chance open of him returning to the Saints.
Nonetheless, Saints coach Dennis Allen pumped the brakes on any potential Brees return, saying the 2 sides haven’t spoken.
Meanwhile, two former NFL players are skeptical about Brees’s version of the events. On his Fox Sports Radio show, Brady Quinn acknowledged Brees appears to be in a difficult position attempting to work out his next move.
“It looks like this report got out initially that he had to answer because someone leaked it,” Quinn said. “So he’s not likely wanted by NBC, he’s not likely wanted by the Saints, possibly he’ll find yourself with Fox, but that’s a troublesome pill to swallow when you’re a first-ballot future Hall of Famer and also you’re not getting any love right away.”

Quinn’s radio partner LaVar Arrington took a more direct stance on Brees’s situation.
“Or possibly he’s acting out because that’s what he’s used to feeling,” Arrington said. “He’s just not as popular as he thinks he’s, he’s not as loved as he thinks he’s, and he acts out when it doesn’t go the way in which he would love for it to go. He’s reaching out and he’s crying out for attention.”
For now, Brees is currently in limbo waiting to see where he might be next 12 months. It is perhaps at Fox, which might appear to make for an ungainly co-worker pairing with Quinn and Arrington.
