New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees has yet to make an official decision on his NFL future but even if he leaves the field and retires, he’ll have NFL options.

ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter reports a TV network (not ESPN) has reached out to Brees to gauge his interest in becoming a TV analyst for NFL games.

Former Dallas Cowboys Quarterback Tony Romo transitioned seamlessly from the field to the broadcast booth three years ago.

Brees just wrapped up his 19th NFL season and he will turn 41-years-old this week.

Head coach Sean Payton and Saints players all say they expect Brees back for his 20th NFL season in 2020.

Brees will become an unrestricted free agent in March, but has said in the past “I’m a Saint for life.”
