New Orleans SaintsDennis Allen, coach, tweets cryptic message by Drew BreesThe suggestion of a return to football by Germain was probably made in jest.
Brees stirred social media when he tweeted that he “may play soccer again” as part of a response to “speculation” regarding his future.
Brees, 43 years old, retired from football in 2021. He spent the last season working as an NFL analyst at NBC. In apparent response to the New York Post's report that Brees would not be returning to NBC in 2022, the 13-time Pro Bowl quarterback took to Twitter Sunday.
Despite speculation in the media about my future, I'm still undecided. I could work for NBC, play football again, focus on business, philanthropy or train for the senior golf tour, pickleball tour, coach my children, or all of these. Let me know.

Allen said Monday that there has been no discussion about Brees returning to New Orleans.
Allen stated that he thought it was a joke, and they have not had any conversations about it.
Brees is second in NFL history in passing yards (80.358) and touchdown passes (571), only behind only Tom BradyBoth categories.
Allen was asked if he believes Brees can still perform well in the NFL despite Brady's brief retirement.
Allen stated, “I don’t want to live in these hypothetical worlds right at the moment.” “We'll wait to see how it all turns out, but he caused quite a bit of interest that's for certain.”
Saints went 9-8 last season, but were unable to reach the playoffs because of injuries and inconsistency at their quarterback position.
