According to ESPN’s Ed Werder, free agent quarterback Drew Brees ‘isn’t serious about returning to the NFL.’ Brees retired following the 2020 season.
“Knowing Drew Brees over the years, I do not take seriously his recent social media posts about unretiring to play QB in the NFL,” Werder said in a Tuesday Twitter post.
The veteran reporter also reported that Brees had surgery recently. This procedure was done on his left surgery and he may not be able to play until September or October, Werder reported.

Brees is 43-years-old and spent last season with NBC Sports as a commentator. He recently parted ways with the company as reports suggest he wanted to be an analyst and call more games.
He was also contacted by former New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton last season when the team was in a quarterback dilemma. However, he opted to remain retired.
The future Hall of Famer spent 15 seasons with the Saints in his career. He spent the first five seasons of his career with the San Diego Chargers (now the Los Angeles Chargers).
As an NFL player, he made 287 appearances with 286 starts. He was 172-114 as a starter.
Brees went 7,142 for 10,551 for 80,358 yards. He also had 571 touchdowns and 243 interceptions.

The Saints are expected to have Jameis Winston as the team’s starting quarterback again this season. He was the team’s starter last season until he suffered a season-ending injury against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
