Chatting big names that Tom Brady can’t call a game for Fox
July 19, 2022
Hours after news broke that Tom Brady had agreed to a 10-year, $375 million deal with Fox to be a game analyst and network ambassador, Joe wrote — and spoke — about how the on / under on Brady keeping the job could be 2 1 /2 years.
If you believe Brady when he says he wants to spend more time with his family, why would he want to be on the road 100 days a year?
Plus, Brady can’t just travel like a regular guy without being completely mobbed. He’s not Cris Collinsworth or Drew Brees, or Al Michaels or Troy Aikman. He’s more Michael Jordan or Michael Jackson. It’s a tough life.
As for this over/under on Brady’s life after football at Fox, it looks like the under is becoming a great bet. NFL Network face Rich Eisen spoke yesterday on his Peacock show about a conversation former Fox NFL announcer Joe Buck had with Dan Le Batard’s show.
Buck is skeptical of Brady’s long-term interest in the Fox gig, and Eisen said Buck “isn’t so sure Brady will show up in Fox’s booth.”
Eisen went on to say that if there’s anyone who could look at a $375 million contract and pass, it’s Brady.
Joe isn’t surprised by any of this. Assuming Brady is doing something other than playing football, it’s like spinning a roulette wheel.
