According to Andrew Marchand of New York Post, Brees is set to sign with NBC Sports over ESPN that will make him part of the National Football League telecast team 'far after he finishes playing'.
The 41-year-old gunslinger signed a 2-year deal with the Saints this offseason, this after he threw for 2,979 yards and 27 touchdowns during the 2019 season.
Andrew Marchand of the New York Post reports Brees has chosen NBC Sports over Monday Night Football and ESPN.
Not that he was ever going to lack options, but Drew Brees doesn't have to worry about his post-playing career anymore.

Collinsworth and Al Michaels (play-by-play) now call NBC's "Sunday Night Football" games but NBC appears to have a succession plan in place for the famed duo. The network could potentially secure multiple National Football League packages in the next media rights contract, which would allow it to utilize Brees and Collinsworth as color commentators on separate broadcast teams. The NYP does point out that NBC recently signed Collinsworth's son, Jac, who is set to be a big part of the network's future so perhaps Mr. Collinsworth could be persuaded in taking a studio job sitting next to his son.
This is another big hit for ESPN, which is attempting to move on from its current duo of Joe Tessitore and Booger McFarland and refine its National Football League broadcast team prior to upcoming broadcast rights negotiations with the NFL.
That's a blow to ESPN, which has failed to land Romo, Peyton Manning and now Brees in attempt to change out a "Monday Night Football" booth that has struggled since Jon Gruden returned to coaching.
