“Last week I spoke with people from Fox Sports and we agreed that my participation will start in the fall of 2024. That will be great for me because I will have the time to learn several things to become good at it,” Brady said during his participation in the program. The Herd hosted by Colin Cowherd.
The six-time champion with the Patriots and one with the Buccaneers retired last Wednesday after 23 seasons in the NFL.
According to Brady, this will be a final goodbye, different from the one he announced in February 2022, which he regretted 40 days later to play one last season in Tampa Bay.
In May 2022, Fox Sports anticipated the final retirement of the 45-year-old ex-quarterback to have him in its talent pool.
He signed him to a 10-year contract in exchange for $375 million, an amount that will make the former Buccaneers star the highest-paid analyst in history.
“I’m happy because I have a lot of people who will support me in that growth, it will be a great opportunity for me to take this time before heading to my work on Fox Sports broadcasts,” added Brady.
With this decision, the native of San Mateo, California, erased the speculation about a possible appearance during the transmission of Super Bowl LVII on February 12 between the Eagles and Chiefs.
According to Brady, this period will take him to prepare adequately to be in front of the microphones.
“I want to be great at what I do. I always take time to strategize, learn, grow and evolve.”
Regarding the intention that Robert Kraft, owner of the New England Patriots, revealed last week to hire him for a game in the 2023 season to honor him for everything he gave to the team in which he was 20 years old, the former player said that he will analyze.
“I will take the time to catch up with other parts of my life that need energy, I also have to think about the opportunity that the Patriots offer me,” he concluded.
