The seven-time Super Bowl champion quarterback is all the talk in the NFL for 2022.
It first started with him announcing his “retirement” from the NFL.
However, 40 days later, the veteran quarterback would make his NFL return to Tampa Bay.
But the news with him didn’t end there, as rumors about Brady would start going around news outlets.
Now we have something new with Brady.
The star quarterback took a job offer to become a broadcast announcer.

However, that only happens the day he finally calls it quits on the football field.
While this gives him every reason to retire next offseason, the question becomes if he will actually retire.
Brady’s Love For Football Might Keep Him Around A Little Longer
While he’s got a sweet job lined up when he retires, he might not quit so soon.
It took something deep down inside of him to tell everyone he wasn’t done with football.
Even at his age, he is still the best and continues to be the best NFL quarterback around.
As long as he keeps dominating defenses, he won’t quit.
One NFL fan believes Brady won’t quit until his arm falls off, calling for a response of there being a clone or cyborg Brady.
We'll allow the possibility it'll be a clone or a cyborg-Brady when it comes right down to it, sure. https://t.co/d8Hk674TiE

However, we know those two things will never happen.
But we know how determined the elite MVP quarterback is with football and winning championships.
So while some think clone or cyborg, we can say it’s going to be the real deal Brady still playing after 2022.
FOX Gives Brady 375 Million Reasons To Retire Next Offseason
While I see Brady playing beyond 2022, FOX gave him 375 million reasons to retire next offseason.
🚨🚨Tom Brady has signed a ten year – $375 million dollar contract with Fox sports to become an analyst once he retires. 🚨🚨

A ten-year, $375 million deal between FOX Sports and the elite quarterback is more than he makes playing football.
The former MVP quarterback takes pay cuts to keep the best players around him.
However, FOX is sparing no expense to lure the quarterback to an announcing gig.
It’s hard to turn down this kind of money, which is why he accepted the deal.
Seeing him move to the broadcast booth not only pays better, but protects him from the hits he’ll see in 2022.
It’s Not Just About The Hits With A Move To Announcing
While the move to announcing protects Brady from hard hits, it could protect him from something else.
Some fans believe it was his wife behind his retiring in 2022.
A move to broadcasting would mean less time away from her, if that were to be the issue.
While it’s an assumption with her having a hand in his retirement, broadcasting gives him more time with his family.
He’s already stated how he wanted to spend more time with family.
The move would allow for that, as there’s not as much away time to announce games versus playing for an NFL team.
That could make for the ultimate deciding factor for the star quarterback when the time comes to retire for good.
