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 — the most lucrative in sports broadcasting history.
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.”
“We are delighted that Tom has committed to joining the Fox team and wish him all the best during this upcoming season,” Murdoch said.

Brady tweeted that he is excited to eventually join Fox but noted that he still has “unfinished business” as a player.
Murdoch said it’s “entirely up to” Brady when he decides to retire from football and join Fox. Brady led the Buccaneers to a Super Bowl title after the 2020 season and an NFC South title last season. He teamed with coach Bill Belichick to win six Super Bowls during 20 seasons with the New England Patriots.
According to Roster Management System, Brady has made $302,674,250 in his career. The three-time NFL MVP is scheduled to make another $15 million in the 2022 season, bringing his 23-year career earnings to $317,674,250 through this coming season.
