It’s been just over a year since Drew Brees retired from the NFL. The former San Diego Chargers and New Orleans Saints quarterback is second all-time in: completion percentage, touchdown passes, passing yards, completions and pass attempts.

He also still holds the record for most-consecutive games with a passing touchdown with 54.

Since retiring, Brees has been plenty busy. He worked as a color analyst next to Mike Tirico on NBC’s Sunday Night football throughout the 2022 season. Brees’ broadcasting career had relatively mixed reviews and he left the position after NBC reportedly “soured” on him as a color analyst. That led to speculation that Brees might make a return to the NFL. But ESPN’s NFL Insider Ed Werder quickly shot down any chance of a return.

So, what’s next for the future Hall of Fame quarterback? Brees sat down with with CBS Sports reporter Cody Benjamin and discussed just that.

One quote in particular about what Brees plans to do next jumps off the page.

“Well I don’t think I’ll be taking a — well, how about this? How about I take a snap under center, but in a movie?” Brees said to Benjamin. “How about that? Then I can accomplish both.”

Benjamin then asked if there was a movie in the works, to which Brees gave a pretty cheeky answer.

“I don’t know. I don’t know. Maybe so. We’ll see. It’s a teaser here,” he said

Both Kurt Warner and Tom Brady have recently had movies about their career. Could Brees be next? I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
