Business initiative has Drew Brees, several others well-prepared for life after football

No matter what transpires over the rest of his NFL career, Drew Brees will be forever known as a Super Bowl champion.

And there’s one more title with which the New Orleans quarterback could retire.

Savvy businessman.
Thanks to the NFL Business Management and Entrepreneurial Program, an initiative of the NFL and the NFL Players Association that began earlier this week at the Harvard Business School and the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, Brees is considerably better-prepared for his life after football.

“It gives you a great foundation for that eventual transition [into the business world],” said Brees, who one day will turn his acumen for reading coverages into a knack for deciphering profit-and-loss statements.
