Just before the Super Bowl Tom Brady announced that he was going to retire from the NFL - but then shortly after he announced that he wasn't going to retire! So this coming season, we'll see Tom play again BUT when Tom does decide to hang up his helmet he will not be jobless!
Fox CEO Lachlan Murdoch announced on Tuesday that Brady agreed to a long-term deal with the network and will be Fox Sports’ lead NFL analyst when he retires.
Brady will work alongside Kevin Burkhardt whenever his NFL career ends
Fox Sports said in a statement.
“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."
I think this deal was probably in place when he initially retired but then it had to put it on hold because he went back to playing!
