Welp, that was quick.

The decision seemed mutual as Brees preferred doing games over the “Football Night in America” studio show, and NBC didn’t have many NFL games to offer him. NBC soured on Brees’ potential after originally believing he could develop into the heir apparent to Cris Collinsworth on “Sunday Night Football” games.
The New York Post added that there is still a possibility that Brees ends up heading to Fox as they have yet to fill all of their analyst positions for the upcoming season.
Of course, even if Brees does go to Fox, it could be a one-and-done for him there too as Tom Brady will be taking over as the head analyst after he decides to retire.
Nation, did you like Drew Brees as an NFL analyst?
