Drew Brees won't be part of FOX' 2022 NFL broadcast team


FOX released their full broadcast teams for the 2022 NFL season Monday, and there's a noticeable lack of star power.

- No. 1 team: Kevin Burkhardt, Greg Olsen, Erin Andrews and Tom Rinaldi
- No. 2 team: Joe Davis, Daryl "Moose" Johnston and Pam Oliver
- No. 3 team: Adam Amin, Mark Schlereth and Kristina Pink
- No. 4 team: Kenny Albert, Jonathan Vilma and Shannon Spake
- No. 5 team: Kevin Kugler, Mark Sanchez and Laura Okmin
- No. 6 team: Chris Myers, Robert Smith and Jen Hale

While there had been some buzz about Drew Brees potentially joining FOX's No. 2 team after a one-year stint at NBC, things apparently didn't come together for the two sides.

Meanwhile, Joe Buck and Troy Aikman departed for ESPN, where they will call Monday Night Football. Kevin Burkhardt will become the network's top football play-by-play voice. Former Pro Bowl tight end Greg Olsen will jump up to the No. 1 team with Burkhardt, but he's only keeping the seat warm until Tom Brady retires and becomes the top game analyst for the network.
