Fox Sports announced that following Tom Brady’s retirement from football, he would join the network as its lead analyst.
Brady will be paired with play-by-play announcer Kevin Burkhardt to call games.
The New York Posts’ Andrew Marchand reports Brady’s deal will be for ten years and $375 million. It will be the largest contract in sportscasting history, more than double CBS’ Tony Romo’s and ESPN’s Troy Aikman’s salaries of $17 million per year.
Brady has had an eventful offseason, to say the least. He retired, then un-retired, and he was also rumored to be heading to the Miami Dolphins while being upset with his former head coach Bruce Arians.
The seven-time Super Bowl winner responded to the announcement by saying he still has a lot of unfinished business on the field. In 2021, he led the league with 485 completions, 5,316 passing yards, and 43 touchdowns. He’ll be 45 years old in August.
