Super Bowl Champion Tom Brady reached a $375 million deal with Fox Sports making it the most lucrative deal in the history of broadcasting. Brady’s addition to Fox sports arrived as multiple former announcers switched networks in the past few months.
He will be joining as a lead analyst once his career playing ends. The superstar briefly took a break during the off-season, but in March he announced that he will be returning to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for the 2022 season. “We are delighted that Tom has committed to joining the Fox team and wish him all the best during this upcoming season,” CEO of Fox Lachlan Murdoch stated. According to Spotrac Brady has only made $333 million during his career as a quarterback.
It is entirely up to Brady when to begin this 10-year contract after retiring from football.
Brady went on to play for 20 seasons to win six Super Bowls with coach Bill Belichick, leading the super bowl title in the 2020 season. He also won the NFC South title last season.
“But it’s the way he sees football. That’s what I love. That’s what makes our relationship unique,” stated Buccaneer’s offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich on Tuesday. He continued on by saying he appreciates the way the former New England Patriots star “sees football.”
Leftwich called Brady “a football junkie and he has an interesting perspective of this position.” Adding that he thought “it would be great for everyone to hear that, everyone to hear it, to see/hear how [Brady is] wired.” The Buccaneer’s offensive coordinator referred to Brady as “the best ever, right?”
“The fact that you get the best ever to play the quarterback position, have an opportunity to listen to him talk about football — a year from now, two years from now, three years from now — is a great thing,” concluded Leftwich.
