NFL Network national reporter Albert Breer, formerly of the Globe, has been conspicuously absent during coverage of both conference championship games as well as this week’s buildup to the Super Bowl. He also has not had a column published on NFL.com since Jan. 4. A network spokesperson told Sports Illustrated.com’s Richard Deitsch last week that Breer was on “a temporary leave of absence from NFL Media.” I got the same response, with the addendum, “As this is an internal matter, we will have no further comment.” Breer, who has been at the NFL Network since October 2010, responded to a message but said he could not comment.
From Chad Finn this morning.
Something odd's going on with Breer. Not that he's a big loss, he's a useless pustule who retweets Schefter like they're his own insights. But it sure looks like he's been suspended/about to get fired by the NFL network. He showed up on 98.5 today and it sounded like he was presenting himself as still working for the network, but it sure seems otherwise.
Breer, BTW, is a favorite BB target for pointing out all the stupid questions he asks.
