Are you looking to have some things cooked on a hibachi grill for you? A certain cook named Drew Brees is busy taking orders right now.
Brees, who might have played his last game in the National Football League as the New Orleans Saints lost to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in an NFC divisional-round contest, is showing off his culinary skills.
He posted a photo on Instagram of some rather tasty breakfast food. Just looking at it probably will make you hungry, too.
Just imagine Drew Brees working that hibachi grill for some good Cajun-style food, too. Anyone for some boudain and grits? I’m sure Brees would put on his chef’s hat for that meal, too.
Drew Brees Remains A Hero In Eyes of Saints’ Fans
Now Drew Brees reportedly has a lot of extra time on his hands after a stellar NFL career with the Saints and then-San Diego Chargers. He has received credit for helping to lead New Orleans into the Super Bowl months after Hurricane Katrina destroyed much of the Crescent City.
The Saints lost to Tampa Bay 30-20, sending the Buccaneers into Sunday’s NFC Championship Game against the Green Bay Packers. After the loss in New Orleans, Brees and his family spent time on the Superdome field themselves. Tampa Bay quarterback Tom Brady came out of the locker room to join them for a bit, too.
Drew Brees almost decided to retire in 2019, yet thought he’d have one more season in him to lead the Saints into the Super Bowl.
It was not to be, though, and the Austin, Texas native and Purdue Boilermaker standout is reportedly looking ahead to life without pro football.
Brees, Saints Give New Orleans Hope After Katrina
His name is tied to the Saints because he provided help and support to the community after Katrina hit. Brees, along with his teammates, kept their focus on playing football while helping others clean up, too.
In their first game back at the Superdome post-Katrina, the Saints defeated the Atlanta Falcons on a memorable “Monday Night Football” clash. Safety Steve Gleason blocked a punt early in the game near the Falcons’ end zone. It was recovered by the Saints for a touchdown, setting the crowd into a fevered pitch.
Gleason, who announced in 2011 that he’s suffering from ALS, has his block immortalized on a bronze statue just outside the Superdome.
What does Drew Brees do in life after football? Right now, no one knows as Brees is still recovering from the past season. He missed four games due to a punctured lung and 11 broken ribs.
“No complaints,” Brees said in a post-game interview after the loss to Tampa Bay. “No regrets. Man, I’ve always tried to play this game with a great respect and a great reverence for it. And I appreciate all that this game has given to me.”
Whatever Brees does next in life, he’ll probably pour the same amount of heart and dedication in it as he did throughout his football career.
