As he retires from the NFL after 20 seasons, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees tells TODAY’s Hoda Kotb, “You don’t just wake up one day and say, ‘hey, I’m going to retire.’ It’s definitely a process.” He says, “I want to be able to look back … knowing I gave it my absolute best.” He also announces he’ll be joining NBC Sports as an analyst.
