During a recent discussion with People, Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback and ageless wonder Tom Brady explained he would like to “continue to educate people in different ways to take care of themselves so they can continue doing the things they like” as part of his next career whenever he decides to commit to retiring as an active player.
That, of course, was before the news broke Tuesday morning that Brady will join Fox Sports as its lead NFL analyst. He will call games alongside Kevin Burkhardt after the 44-year-old retires from competing for good.
Later in the day, Andrew Marchand of the New York Post provided more information and explained the seven-time Super Bowl champion put pen to paper on a 10-year deal worth $375 million. Marchand notes Brady’s contract more than doubles what Tony Romo received from CBS and what Troy Aikman earned to make the jump to ESPN.
Fox Sports declined to comment when asked about Brady’s agreement, but Marchand reports the signal-caller will also serve as “a company ambassador who will help in sponsorships and promotional activities” outside of his game-day obligations.
As Mike Florio noted for Pro Football Talk, Brady’s contract with the Buccaneers expires after the upcoming season, and he hasn’t yet confirmed his plans for the 2023 campaign. Not for nothing, but Brady now has millions upon millions of reasons to ride off into the sunset in January or, as he’d probably prefer, as an eight-time champion in February.
