Tom Brady will join Fox Sports as its lead NFL analyst when his playing career ends.
Fox did not disclose terms of Brady’s deal, but the New York Post reported that the seven-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback has agreed to a 10-year, $375 million contract. This deal is the most lucrative in sports broadcasting history.
Via NY Post:
“Fox Sports’ deal to make Tom Brady its lead NFL game analyst after he retires is for 10 years and $375 million, The Post has learned.
It is the largest contract in sportscasting history, as it more than doubles both CBS’ Tony Romo and ESPN’s Troy Aikman in average annual salary of $18 million per season.
Fox Sports declined comment when asked about what Brady will be paid for the games.”

Fox CEO Lachlan Murdoch announced the news Tuesday during a corporate investor call. Brady will call games alongside lead play-by-play announcer Kevin Burkhardt and will work as an “ambassador” for Fox with a focus on “client and promotional initiatives.”
Brady is the NFL leader in career passing yards (84,520) and touchdown passes (624), and he led the league with a career-high 5,316 passing yards and 43 TDs in 2021, his second season with the Buccaneers.
Now he’ll hold the record for this enormous deal.
