Tom Brady will eventually retire from professional football.  That day will happen.  We’re pretty sure.

When it does, his public-facing football future has been decided.

Brady will join Fox Sports as the network’s lead analyst, it was announced Tuesday.

Dollar figures for the agreement are mind-boggling, with The New York Post reporting the deal is for 10 years and $375 Million, the most lucrative contract in sports broadcasting history.

Fox recently lost its top broadcast pairing as Joe Buck and Troy Aikman inked deals with ESPN to call Monday Night Football.

Kevin Burkhardt replaces Buck as Fox’s lead play-by-play man, and Brady will join Burkhardt to call the top games on the network.

Fox has the rights to broadcast the Super Bowl this season (SB LVII in Feb. ’23) and the the 2024 season (SB LIX in Feb. ’25).

Brady turns 45 years old in August.  He is coming off a statistically fantastic 2021 season, his second with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, in which he threw for a career-high 5,316 passing yards and led the league with 43 passing touchdowns.
