NY POST: Drew Brees is signing with NBC Sports over ESPN in a move that will make him a fixture on NFL telecasts far after he finishes playing, The Post has learned.
In a contract that will begin after Brees retires from the Saints, the 41-year-old will be groomed as the potential replacement for Cris Collinsworth on “Sunday Night Football,” according to sources.
“Like all NFL fans, we look forward to watching Drew continue his Hall of Fame career this fall, and we are confident his post-playing career will be just as successful,” NBC Sports spokesman Greg Hughes told The Post.
That’s now 0-3 for ESPN. Romo said Nope. Peyton Manning said nah. And Drew Brees said No Thanks. Which is weird no body wants this Monday Night Football gig. What’s next for ESPN? Maybe they’ll go after Eli Manning?
