Tom Brady will not immediately move from the pitches to the TV booths.
Brady told Colin Cowherd last Monday during the episode of ” The Herd on FS1 and Fox Sports Radio that he will not begin his career with the Fox network until the 2024 season.
The seven-time Super Bowl winner – who retired last week after a 23-year career with the New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers – signed a 10-year contract with the Fox network last May to become the chain’s flagship analyst once he hung up his boots for good.
Brady argued the decision by saying he didn’t want to rush and wanted to catch up on other aspects of his life.
“I think there’s one thing that I’ve always followed in my career, whether it was when I got drafted by the Patriots or in my contract deals with the Bucs, is that I wanted to be fully engaged. in what I do and never let people down,” Brady clarified.
“I want to be great at what I do, and that always takes time and an action plan, learning, growing and evolving. I have so many people to count on, and who could support me in this growth”.
Brady is expected to eventually join Kevin Burkhardt on the number one team at Fox. Burkhardt and Greg Olsen will commentate on their first Super Bowl on Sunday when the Kansas City Chiefs take on the Philadelphia Eagles.
Fox, which airs its 10th Super Bowl on Sunday, also owns the rights to Super Bowl 59 in New Orleans at the end of the 2024 season. Brady is not expected to be part of Fox’s pre-game coverage on Sunday. .
