He will continue to earn money from his business interests and endorsements.
The seven-time Super Bowl winner will add another revenue stream after joining FOX Sports as their lead NFL analyst.
Brady will join Kevin Burkhardt in the booth when he retires from playing football.
With this deal in place, Brady’s playing days are numbered.
There’s no sense signing a player to the broadcast booth if he will remain in the league for long.
Besides, Brady is set to earn money that is close to what he gets annually as a player.
Tom Brady’s deal with FOX will pay him $20M-$25M per year, making him the highest paid NFL TV analyst, per @MMcCarthyREV.
The agreement is believed to be a long-term deal (more than the typical 5 years) and will come in at the $190M to $200M range over the life of the contract.

Pro Football Focus’ Ari Meirov tweeted, “Tom Brady’s deal with FOX will pay him $20M-$25M per year, making him the highest paid NFL TV analyst, per @MMcCarthyREV.”
He added, “The agreement is believed to be a long-term deal (more than the typical 5 years) and will come in at the $190M to $200M range over the life of the contract.”
With the details now revealed, it’s no wonder that Brady didn’t refuse such an offer.
He gets to share his football wisdom after every play while earning a nice amount of money without getting sacked.
Brady beats everyone in terms of taking care of his body.
But at some point, Father Time will take over and he will leave the game for good.
Close To What He Earns As A Quarterback
Aaron Rodgers elevated the ceiling for quarterback pay when he signed a three-year, $150 million deal.
In contrast, Brady’s highest annual average value throughout his career is $25 million.
That relatively low salary allows his teams to sign more talent around him.
Since he will be getting the same amount of money with FOX, Brady will take that offer.
It gives him more time to become a businessman, a father, and a husband.
