The news the NFL world has been waiting for was finally announced today.
That is that Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady has officially retired from football.
After his 23 seasons of playing, it appears that Brady is finally ready to move on.
But, he will be staying close to the game for many years to come.
As many great quarterbacks before him have done, Brady will head to the booth and become a broadcaster for Fox Sports.
Throughout his playing career, Brady earned $333 million, but he is set to top that with his FOX contract.

The $375 million over 10 years just goes to show how sought-after Brady was in the broadcasting business.
He will have a unique perspective of the game, similar to what Tony Romo brings to CBS.
For Brady to jump right into broadcasting is quite surprising.
Many thought he would want to take some time off before deciding what to do.
But, a competitor like Brady can simply not stay away from the game.
You can be sure that money is not the reason Brady is doing this.
He wants to remain close to the game, and to all of the players he spent the last 23 years with.
This might even open the door for him to jump into coaching at some point if he chooses.
Ultimately, the NFL will be changed forever now that Brady is gone.
It seemed like each season his teams were in contention and he was one of the most feared players.
Now we get to see if Brady can leave a legacy in the broadcast booth as he did on the field.NEXT: The Entire NFL Is Chasing Tom Brady In Super Bowl History
