Brady was reportedly torn between the two careers this offseason, and almost ended his playing career for good in the process.
“During his brief retirement, Tom Brady was deciding between either returning to playing football or joining FOX immediately as a broadcaster,” NFL reporter Dov Kleiman tweeted Thursday. “The trigger for FOX pursuing him strongly was Troy Aikman making it known that he’s talking to Amazon and ESPN.”
Brady has committed to playing in his 22nd season in the NFL as a 45-year-old quarterback. His football future is up in the air following the 2022 season. That said, at some point, we now know he has another lengthy career in front of him.
