The 'Today' host suddenly became emotional following an on-air segment on Friday morning.
NFL Schedule Makers, TV Networks Are Likely Giddy About These QB Matchups if Tom Brady Goes to Tampa Bay
Tom Brady would face Drew Brees twice and get Patrick Mahomes at home. There are other intriguing matchups if Brady eventually signs with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
NFL Network analysts say Tua Tagovailoa, Joe Burrow, Dak Prescott and one NFL backup are more sought-after than Tom Brady, one of the all-time greats in the league.
Brees has indicated he will use the month after the season to decide on his future, according to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk on NBC.

Brady can still pass Brees, but the chase is close as the all-time touchdown passing record is now in the hands of Drew Brees, who passed Peyton Manning on Monday.
Brees connected with Josh Hill early in the third quarter to give the Saints a 27-0 lead, and it made Brees the league's all-time leader in touchdown passes.
Manning, who played mostly for the Indianapolis Colts and then the Denver Broncos from a span of 1998-2015, still holds the record for most passing touchdowns in a career with 539. Drew Brees is third on the list with 537, and the Saints play at home Monday night.

The veteran signal caller was injured on Sunday in the loss against the Los Angeles Rams and is expected to be out for six weeks.
The veteran quarterback was replaced in the first quarter with a thumb injury and will see a hand specialist in Los Angeles.
Seth Dunlap, host of New Orleans station WWL-AM's "The Last Lap," wrote an essay about the recent controversy over Saints quarterback Drew Brees' relationship with Focus on the Family.
Focus on the Family founder James Dobson has argued gays and lesbians can be cured and find "wholeness in their newfound heterosexuality."
Patrick Mahomes could become the first player since Peyton Manning in 2009 to win back-to-back MVP awards.
Brees has averaged just under 180 passing yards over the last three games as the Saints have struggled offensively.
The Chiefs have been one of the teams of the season and lead the AFC with an 11-3 record.
Patrick Mahomes could reach Peyton Manning's 55 touchdown passes in a season and how many QBs will pass for 5,000 yards?
