Tom Brady says football runs in his blood so accepting a broadcasting deal was a no-brainer for him. Last month, Fox announced Brady would join the network as the lead football analyst once his career is over. Brady, 44, retired on February 1 but announced he was un-retiring on March 14.
While reflecting on his decision to accept a broadcasting deal, Brady stated he feels he has a lot of football knowledge. Also, Brady praised his Bill Belichick, describing his former coach as "the most amazing coach." "I love football and I care a lot about football, too.
I'm always going to be involved in it one way or the other," Brady said during a roundtable interview with TNT's Ernie Johnson that aired after "The Match" golf event. "I was thinking about the opportunity to travel around and see these guys on different Friday afternoons and watching them practice and saying, 'Hey, here's a couple of things that worked for me.'
"[Talking to] different coaches. I was around the most amazing coach, in Coach Belichick, the most amazing coaches over a period of time. I played with Hall of Famers, Randy Moss to Ty Law to Richard Seymour. I feel like I have a lot of knowledge."
Brady indicates it is all good between him and Belichick
After the 2019 season, Brady decided to leave the New England Patriots and sign with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
At the time, it was reported that there was a rift between Brady and Belichick. In his first year in Tampa, Brady won the Super Bowl. On the other side, the Patriots have started new chapter as Mac Jones is now the team's starting quarterback.
Jones, who was the 15th overall pick in the 2021 NFL draft, led the Patriots to a 10-7 record and a playoff appearance last year. In a thrilling Week 4 matchup - which marked Brady's return to Foxboro - the Buccaneers claimed a 19-17 victory.
