Sorry kids daddy has a new job that will keep him a bit busier than the NFL. But no worries he won’t be gone like he was with the NFL. He will be home every night from now on.
The image is awesome, but it may be short-lived since Drew Drees has already INKED a HUGE deal with NBC Sports.
Drew Brees Duties with NBC Sports:
Brees’ duties will also include game analyst for NBC’s coverage of Notre Dame football.
NBC notes Brees will also work Super Bowl LVI and be included during its Olympics coverage. No word on which sports Brees will focus on — but he’s got a talent for breaking down film, so put him anywhere!
Brees said on “Today:”
I’m excited about that journey. I’m excited to stay very closely connected with the game of football, it’s been such an important part of my life.
I continue to be able to talk about it, show a passion for it, and be able to bring my kids along for the ride there as well, and let them be part of those special moments.

Brees also says a huge part of his “retirement’ life will include philanthropy — especially in the city of New Orleans where he spent 15 seasons of his NFL career.
I’ll be honest, I’m excited because [philanthropy is] where we can make the biggest impact and there’s still so much need in this country and this city.
Drew and his wife, Brittany, donated $10 million to help various areas in need in Louisiana in 2020 — money that earmarked to build healthcare facilities and to help feed the hungry.
