No, he will not play for another franchise because he will suit up for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2022.
But once his playing days are over for good, the seven-time Super Bowl winner will be a part of FOX Sports’ broadcasting crew.
The 44-year-old quarterback will join Kevin Burkhardt as the duo that will call the games that the network covers.
Burkhardt is an experienced play-by-play guy who also has experience in covering Major League Baseball games.
While Brady is still playing, it’s still uncertain who will become Burkhardt’s analyst this season.
After all, Troy Aikman joins Joe Buck in ESPN’s Monday Night Football booth.
FOX needed some star power and impeccable football wisdom to continue their high-level coverage.
Therefore, getting Brady is a massive deal for the network because his effect goes beyond football.
FOX Sports: “Tom will not only call our biggest NFL games with Kevin Burkhardt, but will also serve as an ambassador for us, particularly with respect to client and promotional initiatives.”

ESPN’s Adam Schefter tweeted FOX’s latest message saying, “Tom will not only call our biggest NFL games with Kevin Burkhardt, but will also serve as an ambassador for us, particularly with respect to client and promotional initiatives.”
Putting him on advertisements or business calls will generate much interest from concerned parties.
In the end, the network earns a profit and any money that Brady helps bring in may help his salary increase.
How Much Compensation Will Brady Receive As FOX’s Analyst?
While the terms of the deal are not yet disclosed, seeing the annual salaries of other analysts gives us a ballpark of his payday.
Aikman receives $18 million annually while Tony Romo is within that rate.
Therefore, Brady wouldn’t settle for anything less than what those two former Dallas Cowboys quarterbacks earn.
Likewise, Brady’s star power should have FOX Sports offering him a more lucrative deal.
