There are some possibilities that Tom Brady may decline the idea of a 10-year broadcasting deal with Fox Sports.
After his retirement from the NFL, legendary former quarterback Tom Brady has recently agreed to serve as a game analyst for Fox Sports, covering the NFL from the booth. But there are some big updates that come from Brady about the Fox Sports game Analyst.
Recently, Fox Sports offered him a big $375 million deal for the next 10 years for serving as a game analyst for them. But it seems like former QB Tom Brady may be walking away from the deal.
During a podcast with John Ourand this week, Andrew Marchand of the New York Post described the future of Tom Brady with Fox Sports. According to Marchand, Brady is only 49 percent sure about Fox Sports broadcasting. Brady might go through with his broadcasting deal with Fox.
“It was at 51 percent that he’s going to do it to 49 percent, with the reasoning it’s so much money he’ll try it for a year,” Marchand said. “However, I’ve talked to a couple of people recently close to Brady and I kind of feel like I’m going more 49 percent chance he does it, 51 percent chance he doesn’t.”
Marchand later clarified that he was not sure that Brady wanted to make such a commitment.
“I don’t think he wants to travel that much — obviously he’s going to go private. I think Brady’s a guy who if he’s in, he’s all-in, so he’s not going to be showing up the day of games like Joe Buck and 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,” Marchand said.
It’s quite sad news for NFL fans, who hoping to hear Brady’s broadcasting in upcoming games in the future, and the NFL world had plenty of questions to say about it.
However, Tom Brady has previously made it clear that he won’t be calling games this upcoming season. Until we’ll have to wait to see if Brady ends up doing it at all.
