Take that, Tony Romo and Troy Aikman. FOX Sports has reeled in the GOAT to be its lead analyst if and when Tom Brady decides to call it a career on the field.
FOX announced on Tuesday that it has signed Brady to a massive contract that will put him in the booth with Kevin Burkhardt when he retires.
The deal is for more than $20 million per year. The contract surpasses the $180 million over 10 years that Romo got from CBS and the five-year, $90 million contract that signed with ESPN. The New Yor Post is reporting Brady’s deal is for $375 million over 10 years.
Of course, there is no guarantee when Brady will actually leave the field and step into the broadcast booth.
He retired for 40 days in the offseason but audibled and decided to play in 2022.
Brady spends plenty of time in Super Bowls and FOX has the rights to two of the next three games. Brady hopes to be playing in the game with the Buccaneers after the upcoming season. If Tampa Bay is not in the game, it would seem likely he would have a role in the FOX broadcast.
