NFL GOAT Tom Brady scores gig with major network upon eventual retirement

When you’re the GOAT everything just seems to have a way of falling in line for you, just ask NFL star quarterback Tom Brady.

Brady is widely seen as the greatest quarterback to ever play the game and is still playing at the ripe old ago of 44. He called it quits at the end of last season, but that didn’t last long as he came out of retirement earlier this year to play another season for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. And should he retire again after the 2022 season, Brady already has his next gig lined up.

Fox Corp CEO Lachlan Murdoch announced Tuesday that the network has signed Brady as their lead analyst in a series of tweets.

“We are pleased to announce that immediately following his playing career, 7-time Super Bowl Champion Tom Brady will be joining us at FOX Sports as our lead analyst,” Murdoch said.

“Over the course of this long-term agreement, Tom will not only call our biggest NFL games with Kevin Burkhardt, but will also serve as an ambassador for us, particularly with respect to client and promotional initiatives,” he added. “We are delighted that Tom has committed to joining the Fox team and wish him all the best during this upcoming season.”

Brady responded to the announcement with his own message… surely directed at Tampa Bay fans: “Excited, but a lot of unfinished business on the field with the @Buccaneers.”

There’s no signs that age is a factor for Brady, who won a Super Bowl with the Buccaneers during the 2020 season, as he threw for 5,316 yards with 43 TDs and 12 INTs last year — impressive numbers only a handful of QBs in the league can duplicate.

The signing fills a big hole for Fox Sports, having lost its number one broadcasting duo when play-by-play man Joe Buck and color commentator Troy Aikman moved to ESPN earlier this year. Buck and Aikman, a Hall of Fame quarterback who won three Super Bowls with the Dallas Cowboys, were together for more than 20 years at the network.

Aikman and CBS Sports lead analyst Tony Romo, another former Dallas Cowboys quarterback, are the high paid announcers and NBC Sports speculated on the salary Brady might command.

“The question isn’t whether he’ll exceed their annual compensation, but by how much. Could it be $30 million per year. Could it be more than that?” the network asked. “When considering everything Brady will bring to the table — Fox said Brady will ‘serve as an ambassador for us, particularly with respect to client and promotional initiatives’ — $30 million would be a steal. Hell, $40 million would be a bargain.”

The New York Post reported Tuesday that Brady is getting a “monster 10-year, $375 million deal” from Fox Sports.
