Tom Brady To Become Fox Sports’ Lead NFL Analyst Once He Retires From Playing

Tom Brady is yet to officially retire from the NFL, but he already has his next gig lined up. The record-breaking quarterback and seven-time Super Bowl champion is set to become Fox Sports’ lead NFL analyst once his playing career comes to a close. Fox CEO Lachlan Murdoch broke the news, saying that Brady will join Fox Sports and call the biggest NFL games alongside Kevin Burkhardt, but it’s entirely up to him to decide when he wants to make this major career shift. “We are delighted that Tom is committed to joining the Fox team, and we wish him the best in this upcoming season… It is entirely up to him for when he chooses to retire and move into what will be an exciting and stellar television career,” said Murdoch in a statement. Brady tweeted that he’s excited about the news, but added there’s still “a lot of unfinished business on the field with the Buccaneers." He’ll join the team for the 2022 season after backtracking on his decision to retire in March. It’s been reported that Brady's deal is worth $375 million over 10 years, but Fox stated this isn’t an accurate description and that they haven’t released any financial details. If the numbers were correct, this would make Brady the highest-paid sports commentator in history.
