Tom Brady was a magician at times when he was on the football field, and he won a lot of Super Bowls as well as brought in a ton of cash at the same time.
Back in May of 2022, the former Tampa Bay Bucs quarterback signed an unprecedented contract. It was a 10-year, $375m deal to become the next in-game TV analyst for FOX. The deal seemed to come out of nowhere, and was a surprising announcement to many, primarily because it came mere months after he shockingly un-retired in order to rejoin the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as their quarterback.
Details began to emerge, stating that FOX was comfortable with Brady’s decision to play football, and the position would be waiting for him once he decided to retire ‘for real’.
His decision to sign that deal will be very lucrative for him because he’ll be making more money from here on out compared to his illustrious NFL career.
According to Spotrac, Brady earned $332,962,392 during his football tenure. The deal he got from Fox is the most lucrative ever handed out in sports broadcasting history. He won’t officially start broadcasting until the 2024 season as he’ll call games next to lead play-by-play announcer Kevin Burkhardt.

Greg Olsen, who is currently Burkhardt’s on-air partner, will be losing a ton of money and demoted as a result of Tom Brady taking his spot. If Burkhardt and Olsen continue to thrive as FOX’s top broadcast team in 2023, it will be interesting to see whether Brady still takes the No. 1 analyst role or slots in somewhere else.
In the meantime, Tom Brady has decided to take some time to focus on his family, and spend time with his children.
From a broadcasting perspective, many have questioned whether Brady has the right personality for the job. If you listen to him on his personal podcast, then you can get a taste of what is to come.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
