Tom Brady is 23 years in the game and running strong. But off the game, the QB has several ventures making progress. Brady has a massive deal with Fox Sports, solidifying his future in the organization for the next ten years. The contract would only become valid after the Buccaneers QB retires from the sport. However, a prominent broadcaster showcases uncertainty to see Brady as an analyst.

Joe Buck sat down with Jimmy Traina on Thursday’s episode of the Sports Illustrated Podcast. The broadcaster’s comments over Tom Brady and his future with Fox Sports were among the prime topics. Buck made a bombshell claim to Traina and looks skeptical of seeing TB12 joining the booth soon.

Joe Buck mentioned, “I think he could play next year. I think he’s the least of Tampa Bay’s worries. There’s so much up in the air in his life right now. For anybody to go, ‘he’s 100% doing X, Y, or Z,’ I don’t think that’s possible… Is there a chance? Yeah, I think there’s a chance. Who knows where his family life takes him, who knows if he plays one more year or he doesn’t. I know there are people at FOX who would say there’s a chance that he doesn’t call a game there.”

However, Joe Buck expressed enthusiasm to see Tom Brady in the booth. The broadcaster claimed he would love to see TB12 doing commentary work and making play-by-play analyst work.
