Tom Brady Reportedly Signs Historic Sports Broadcasting Contract

American NFL legend, Tom Brady, has signed the largest sports broadcasting contract in history with Fox Sports, reportedly worth $540 million over 10 years.

Post-retirement, the 44-year old quarterback will join Fox Sports as the network’s NFL lead analyst.

When Brady will retire is unknown, with the player making a last-minute call to play his 23rd season, reversing a retirement decision announced back in February. 

The deal well surpasses both CBS’ Tony Romo and ESPN’s Troy Aikman’s average annual salary of $26 million per season. 

Fox Corporation chief executive, Lachlan Murdoch, said in a statement: “We are pleased to announce that immediately following his playing career, seven-time Super Bowl Champion Tom Brady will be joining us at FOXSports as our lead analyst.”

“Over the course of this long-term agreement, Tom will not only call our biggest NFL games with Kevin Burkhardt, but he will also serve as an ambassador for us, particularly with respect to the client and promotional initiatives,” Murdoch said.

The original report detailing Brady’s contract was posted by the New York Post, owned by Murdoch’s News Corp.

However, Fox Sport said no figures will be officially released by the network and has since disputed the original claim. 

The company stated through Sports Business Journal reporter, John Ourand, “What has been reported isn’t an accurate description of the deal and we have not released details beyond what was disclosed on our quarterly earnings call.”
