Saints legend Drew Brees seems to be at an early crossroads as he enters his second year of retirement following a decorated playing career.
Drew Brees was not as much of an instant television success as many anticipated he would be last season, and one former Pro Bowler who played against him is not surprised. Brees worked as a studio analyst for NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” last year, but he is not expected to continue in that role. Former Washington linebacker LaVar Arrington discussed Brees’ future during a recent episode of his FOX Sports Radio show “2 Pros and a Cup of Joe,” which he co-hosts with Brady Quinn. Arrington ripped Brees for what Arrington perceives as a big ego.

Drew Brees did the wrong thing this week. He tweeted something. Then everyone lost their minds and speculated and some of that was about the Seahawks. OK, it’s unfair to say “everyone” lost their minds. But a lot. And it was all based on Drew Brees not returning to NBC as a studio and game analyst. The decision for Brees not to return seemed mutual and not like Brees was fired. According to Dan Patrick, Brees might have decided to leave NBC because the gig Brees had “wasn’t fun.”

If the NFL offseason has taught gamblers anything, it's that there's never too farfetched a bet to make on where a player might land next. From Tyreek Hill leaving the Chiefs for the Dolphins to Tom Brady retiring and then unretiring to return for his third act, almost anything seems possible in this unpredictable league.
