Tom Brady, the former NFL quarterback, has denied rumors that he will be retiring from his role as a color commentator for FOX Sports during the 2024 NFL season. He refuted these allegations via the comment section of a Sports Illustrated post, which cited a New York Post report claiming the 45-year-old was considering walking away from his $375 million contract with FOX to pursue other ventures in retirement. However, Brady dismissed these reports as “FakeNews” and confirmed his intentions to stick to his initial plans of broadcasting NFL games for FOX Sports in 2024.
Preparations for the Role
According to sources from TMZ Sports, Brady has already begun preparations for his role as a color commentator for FOX Sports despite being 16 months away from starting the gig. The future Hall of Famer signed a 10-year deal with FOX in May 2022 but deferred starting the job to the fall of 2024 to focus on other aspects of his life in 2023. It seems that this plan remains unchanged, as Brady is gearing up to start his new role as a broadcaster in 2024.
Brady’s Future Plans
While Brady may have retired from the NFL, he certainly isn’t slowing down. In addition to his broadcasting career, he has also been actively involved in his TB12 brand, which promotes fitness and wellness. The brand offers a range of services, including personal training, nutrition coaching, and supplements. Furthermore, Brady has also expressed an interest in coaching and has even started mentoring younger quarterbacks in the league.
In conclusion, despite rumors to the contrary, Tom Brady remains committed to his plans of becoming a color commentator for FOX Sports during the 2024 NFL season. He has already started preparing for the role and is looking forward to starting his new career as a broadcaster. Alongside his broadcasting career, he will continue to promote his TB12 brand and has expressed an interest in coaching younger quarterbacks.
