Tom Brady announced today that he is retiring once and for all from football.
Of course he is a first ballot Hall of Famer and in my opinion The G.O.A.T (greatest of all time), I also think he could have easily played at least two more years and still be a top tier QB.
In his announcement he didn’t say why he’s retiring, only saying thanks to everybody he thanked last year when he retired for a month, what he didn’t say was he has a massive contract with FOX Sports to be the number one game analyst.
Big Time Money
Tom signed a contract with Fox last year that will pay him a guaranteed 375 Million Dollars over 10 years, or over 37 Million a year and not have to worry about being sacked literally or figuratively
He’s already getting ready to call games and seems like he is looking forward to it, saying:
“There’s so much to learn, there’s so much to teach, you know, it’s ever evolving,” Brady told guest Stephen A. Smith Monday on the latest episode of his Let’s Go Podcast. “Believe me, as much as you think I’m willing to teach people, I’m really looking to learn. I’m really looking to learn from all the people that I get to talk to. I get an opportunity to be in a job in the future where I get to travel around and learn from all the other people that I’ve looked up to and admired and different organizations and different people. So it’s exciting for me too. I feel like the opportunity to do that is something that I’m really looking forward to whenever that time comes.”
“I think the interesting thing about me is, in football, I have a very – it’s very black and white. It’s right or wrong. There’s strategies which are right or wrong,” Brady said. “You’re not gonna get them right all the time, but there’s the right approach to take. When I watch it, I see who’s winging it and I see who’s got really detailed plans.
