Tom Brady’s career might be over, but that does not mean he isn’t a sought after person in retirement.
According to Front Office Sports, TV networks are already pursuing Brady to join their various broadcast teams. Per the report, there are already bids as high as $25 million for a studio or booth gig.
“Brady would be worth his weight in gold. The opening bid would be $20 million a year — and it could go as high as $25 million,” per FOS sources. “That would be for either games or the studio. There’s no way in hell Brady would make less than (CBS’ Tony) Romo.”
Front Office Sports also cited sports marketing expert Bob Dorfman, who believes NFL teams will go on “an all-out blitz” to sign him.
“You’d see an all-out blitz by every company with an NFL interest to sign him. It would take 8 figures to get the GOAT to sign a multi-year deal,” Dorfman said.
The 44-year-old quarterback has already stated a desire to spend more time with his wife, supermodel Gisele Bundchen, and three children. He was under contract for 2022 with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and is coming off one of the best seasons in his 22-year career but still decided to walk away from the game.
Right now, Brady gives his time to his podcast, so he might not want to get into broadcasting and take on a heavy load of traveling right after freeing himself from the NFL.
Brady won six Super Bowls with the Patriots playing for coach Bill Belichick, and got better with age. He led the Buccaneers to their second Super Bowl title last year in his first season in Tampa.
