Drew Christopher Brees is a name to reckon with in the world of the NFL. The former star quarterback played on the biggest stage for as many as two decades and achieved a lot in his illustrious career. Brees dedicated most of his playing days to the New Orleans Saints.
Brees won the Super Bowl title once in his career. Moreover, he was also named the Super Bowl MVP in 2010 as he played a crucial role in guiding his team to the ultimate glory. In addition to all this, he has played the most number of consecutive matches with a touchdown pass and he has also got the highest percentage record for a single game. Indeed, the man has done so much for football through the years.
“He’s not as important as he thinks he is”: LaVar Arrington on Drew Brees
Brees made the transition from the field to the television last year where he worked for NBC. However, not long ago, rumors about him leaving NBC and joining FOX started surfacing. The nypost.com had reported that Brees might go on to replace Aikman as Fox’s No. 1 game analyst. After that, what came as another twist to the tale, Brees took to Twitter to claim that he might take the field again in the near future.
He sure seems incredibly confused at this instance. Reflecting on what he has said and done recently, LaVar Arrington, on FOX Sports Radio made a few points. Brady Quinn suggested that Brees is probably not wanted by NBC and the Saints also don’t look too keen to rope him in.
He added that Brees might end up working with FOX but it’s tough to see him like this. LaVar responded by saying, “maybe he’s acting out because that’s what he’s used to feeling. He’s just not as popular as he thinks he is, he’s not as loved as he thinks he is, and he acts out when it doesn’t go the way he would like for it to go.”
“He’s reaching out and he’s crying out for attention,” LaVar further added. Clearly, Arrington didn’t hold back in letting everyone know what he thinks about Brees. It will be interesting to see where Drew finally ends up.
