Report: Drew Brees linked to another network after Troy Aikman news
Troy Aikman’s reported departure from FOX Sports to ESPN for “Monday Night Football” could lead to some major moves among NFL broadcasters, including Drew Brees.
Brees, who joined NBC as a “Sunday Night Football” analyst after his retirement from the NFL, is mentioned in Andrew Marchand of the New York Post’s updated report about the Aikman news:
Meanwhile, Fox suddenly has a hole atop its No. 1 broadcast team with two Super Bowls in the next three years. Fox, however, has added depth to its NFL analyst group in recent years.
It will consider its No. 2 analyst Greg Olsen, McVay, Sean Payton and, in a twist, could try to trade for NBC’s Drew Brees, according to sources.
Marchand notes that he reported in January that Brees is also a candidate to be part of Amazon’s “Thursday Night Football” coverage. Brees, who turned 43 last month, appears to have a bright future in broadcasting.
