“I may work for NBC, I may play football again, I may focus on business and philanthropy, I may train for the pickleball tour, senior golf tour, coach my kids or all of the above. I’ll let you know.”

Brees announced his retirement last March after the 2020-21 season, which included a message to fans that he would transition into the broadcast world as an analyst for NBC Sports.

He retired as the NFL’s all-time leader in career passing yards (80,358).
