The media has been speculating a lot about Drew Brees coming out of retirement, but the legend hasn’t confirmed his comeback yet
Drew Brees, the legendary QB for the Saints recently made a tweet about his indecisiveness towards making a return to Football. He said he might play football again, work for NBC or just focus on his business.
Brees announced his retirement in March 2021, after a 20-season NFL career. The announcement was made over social media and came after a long wait following the Saints’ season’s conclusion. It may have been a family affair, according to his Instagram post, where his children exclaimed in unison that their father is announcing his retirement so that he could spend more time with them.
“After 20 years as a player in the NFL and 15 years as a Saint, it is time I retire from the game of football. Each day, I poured my heart & soul into being your Quarterback. Til the very end, I exhausted myself to give everything I had to the Saints organization, my team, and the great city of New Orleans.” Brees quoted.
Drew Brees’s Medical Condition and his unretirement
The question now arises, “will he really unretire?” As it relates to future Hall of Fame quarterback Drew Brees, who hinted at perhaps coming out of retirement in 2022, this has become the burning question in the NFL. The “currently unsure” broadcaster is reportedly battling his own competitive instinct these days and “may play football again,” according to reports from across the league. What Brees didn’t say is that his body might not be cooperating with his head.
According to ESPN, the 43-year-old recently had surgery on his left shoulder two weeks ago and won’t be physically ready to play for any team until October. This would prevent him from practicing until the middle of the season.
After Drew’s tweet, the NFL world went into an uproar about the veteran coming back to the fields, while Saints head coach Dennis Allen responded to the athlete’s tweet, admitting that the remarks were not meant to be taken seriously.
“My wife’s the one that told me about it because I don’t follow social media,” Allen said to WDSU. “So I thought, ‘Well that’s interesting. That’ll bring up some questions tomorrow at the golf tournament.’ Yeah but certainly, I think it was a comment made in jest and we certainly haven’t had any conversations in that regard.“
While we all wish for Drew’s good health and well-being, it wouldn’t be too bad for him to actually return to the fields for a while. Brees’s career has been an inspiration to many and maybe he could show the newcomers a new trick or two
