Saints’ Drew Brees to appear on ESPN2’s Manning


Legendary New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees will make an appearance on Peyton and Eli Manning’s “Monday Night Football” simulcast this week, via John Ourand of Sports Business Journal. ESPN’s Mike Triplett adds that Brees will be joining them for some time “in the second half”, so plan accordingly. It’s an appropriate guest venue with the Saints visiting the Seattle Seahawks in front of a national audience.

Brees retired from the NFL earlier this year to pursue a career in broadcasting with NBC Sports, where he found immediate success in the studio segments on Sunday nights while calling Notre Dame games on Saturday alongside by Mike Tirico. It will be fun to have his point of view during a Saints game given his unique closeness to the team.

And maybe we’ll get some good-humored reviews about Brees beating Peyton and the Colts in Super Bowl XLIV or his 6-2 record against Eli’s Giants teams. Either way, it’s worth logging into ESPN2.
