Tom Brady retires: Networks reaching out about broadcasting jobs

February 3, 2022

Tom Brady has plenty of time to focus on family and his many business interests now that he is officially retired from the NFL after 22 years. It seems unlikely that he wants to jump into the broadcast booth, but if he does, he’ll have no shortage of opportunities—and giant contract offers—to call games.

Tony Romo made the immediate jump from the Cowboys to the top CBS NFL team, alongside Jim Nantz in the booth. He quickly landed a mammoth deal worth upwards of $18 million per year.

Front Office Sports quotes one source as saying that a hypothetical Brady deal would “blow Romo’s out of the water,” with an opening bid of $20 million per year. An annual contract for Brady could get as high as $25 million.

The question of whether or not Brady is interested in calling games may not be hypothetical for too long. According to the report, multiple networks are making overtures to the seven-time Super Bowl winner.
