Dolphins fans were hoping for the greatest quarterback ever to make his way to Miami.
It would be the first time since Dan Marino the Dolphins would have an elite quarterback.
However, something new may just blow those rumors and dreams away for good with Dolphins fans.
The seven-time Super Bowl winning quarterback will become an announcer when he retires.
The move might very well keep him out of Miami after examining all the details.
Brady signed a deal between himself and FOX Sports that is raising some eyebrows.
FOX offered him more money to become an announcer than he’s making as a quarterback.
The contract is said to be a ten-year deal worth $375 million, meaning $37.5 million a year.

Some people believe he’ll only be an analyst.
However, there’s more that the network has the greatest of all-time doing with them.
FOX Wants Brady As An Ambassador Of Their Brand
When everyone was buzzing about the rumors of Brady going to Miami, it was all about him being a player/part owner of the team.
However, FOX is offering something more to the MVP quarterback that is set in stone.
While the money is a substantial reason to kill the Miami rumors, there’s something else that kills it as well.
With the rumors focusing on Brady having power and control, the deal does those things.
FOX confirmed via Twitter the role they wish for Brady to serve as their newest employee.
Over the course of this long-term agreement, 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.

He’s not only set to be a lead announcer but also an ambassador for client and promotional initiatives.
With the FOX Super Six app using Terry Bradshaw for their promotions, Brady could be the next face of the app.
They could also use him with the FOX Bet app, the sport wagering app for the company.
So the possibilities of how they will use Brady are endless.
It gives him exposure and influence, something the Miami rumors had him seeking with the Dolphins.
He also gives them a better option to Troy Aikman, who is now with ESPN.
How Will Brady Fare Against Tony Romo From CBS?
We know how Brady is a competitive player on the football field.
However, could he bring the same type of competitive spirit to broadcasting?
The one person who has a great grasp on football while announcing games is Tony Romo.
It seems like Romo has a knack for predicting plays before they play out.
Imagine if someone could predict advance price action in the stock market the way Tony Romo predicts plays in real time BEFORE they happen.
At times, I'd swear he's calling the game on tape delay after he's already watched the live game action. pic.twitter.com/jylKJTWaQH

With Brady’s desire to be the greatest in everything he does, he might try to repeat what Romo does at CBS.
So while it won’t be an official competition, the MVP quarterback could make it into one.
While there’s no predicting how a competition between the two quarterbacks will turn out, it would be interesting.
Romo has already honed his skills as an announcer with CBS.
The world has to wait and see how Brady hones his broadcasting skills with FOX.
