Drew Brees will not return to NBC after just one season as a studio and game analyst, The New York Post reported Sunday.

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.

Brees took to social media Sunday evening in response to the report, stating he has yet to make an decision on his future with the network. He also said he may play football again, presumably tongue-in-cheek.

The Saints legendary quarterback served as game analyst with Mike Tirico on Notre Dame home games with NBC Sports during the 2021 season, his first since retiring from the NFL. When the two paired up to call the Raiders-Bengals Wild Card matchup, the review were not good for the 43-year future Canton inductee.
