Tom Brady has a 10-year, $375 million contract with Fox Sports, as reported by Andrew Marchand of The New York Post. On Wednesday, 45-year-old Brady announced he was retiring after 23 seasons in the NFL. Last May, Brady agreed to sign a 10-year contract to join Fox Sports as lead NFL analyst once his career is over.
Now that Brady is officially a former NFL player, many are wondering when and if we will see Brady in the booth. Brady could make his debut in the booth as soon as next Sunday, when the Kansas City Chiefs meet the Philadelphia Eagles in the Super Bowl.
However, the general expectation is that Fox Sports won't rush with introducing Brady and putting him in the booth for the Super Bowl. When Brady agreed to join Fox Sports, it was reported he would join Kevin Burkhardt in the booth.
But since Greg Olsen has been absolutely impressive alongside Burkhardt this season, Fox Sports may soon find themselves in a tricky position. Also, there are those who do not believe that Brady will indeed soon be in the booth, commentating on NFL games.
Brady kept it short and direct this time
12 months ago, Brady announced his retirement via a lengthy essay. This time, Brady released a short video announcing his retirement. "Good morning guys. I'll get to the point right away.
I'm retiring for good. I know the process was a pretty big deal last time, so when I woke up this morning, I figured I'd just press record and let you guys know first. I won't be longwinded. You only get one super emotional retirement essay, and I used mine up last year, so really thank you guys so much to every single one of you for supporting me.
