When it looked like this would be the first NFL season without Tom Brady in more than two decades, the legendary quarterback decided to run it back with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for at least one more year.
Nobody knows when his playing career will end, but we do know what will be next for him the day it does. Tom Brady has agreed to join Fox Sports as lead NFL analyst.
According to Andrew Marchand of the New York Post, Brady will make $375 million for calling games over the course of 10 years. Needless to say, a record-breaking deal for a TV sports analyst.

The bombshell news were announced on Tuesday by Fox Sports CEO Lachlan Murdoch. “Over the course of this long-term agreement, Tom will not only call our biggest NFL games with Kevin Burkhardt, but will also serve as an ambassador for us, particularly with respect to client and promotional initiatives.
“We are delighted that Tom has committed to joining the Fox team and wish him all the best during this upcoming season.” Brady quoted the tweet claiming to feel excited about it, but clarifying he still has “a lot of unfinished business” with the Buccaneers.
