Tom Brady played football for two decades and fans have a few reasons to believe that his NFL future holds many surprises.
The former New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback plans to be a FOX broadcaster in the next few years. However, Andrew Marchand from New York Post believes that it won’t happen in 2023. The quarterback signed a 10-year deal with FOX and will get $375 million to broadcast games. It’s interesting to note that Brady will start broadcasting games in 2024.
Here’s another question. Will Brady come out of his retirement again?
“It fluctuates. It was at 51% he’s going to do it to 49%, with the reasoning, it’s so much money, he’ll try it for a year,” Marchand said on “The Marchand & Ourand Sports Media Podcast” on Wednesday, May 3. “However, I talked to a couple people, recently, close to Brady. And I kind of feel like I’m going more 49% chance he does it, 51% chance he doesn’t. I don’t think he wants to travel that much. Obviously, he’s going to go private.
“And Brady’s a guy if he’s in, he’s all in, so he’s not going to be showing up day of games like Joe Buck and [Troy] Aikman do sometimes. He’s going to be there early if he’s going to do it. So it’s going to be a four-day event. Again, cry me a river, for that type of money for five and a half months. But he shares kids with Gisele Bündchen. I think that’s very important to him, and he can make money elsewhere.”
Tom Brady may have other plans for his NFL future
Brady made a decision and promised to stay retired. He signed a deal with FOX, but his broadcasting career may not start now. Joe Buck from ESPN discussed the same topic on the SI Media podcast with Jimmy Traina last year.
“Is there a chance? Yeah, I think there’s a chance. Who knows where his family life takes him, who knows if he plays one more year or he doesn’t,” Buck told Traina. “I know there are people at FOX who would say there’s a chance that he doesn’t call a game there.”
There’s another possibility for Brady. He could join the Miami Dolphins and stay home. He didn’t even turn down this possibility during a recent tech conference in Miami. It’s a pretty unrealistic scenario, but impossible is nothing.
