Tom Brady’s retirement plans are as unpredictable as they could get. The seven-time Super Bowl champion announced his retirement in February this year and changed his mind only 40 days later. Brady also has a lucrative contract waiting for his post-retirement days as a broadcaster. However, former Super Bowl champion, Eli Manning, disagrees.

Tom Brady has plans with Fox Sports broadcasting after finally retiring from football. However, former Giants quarterback Eli Manning doesn’t think Brady will live up to his Fox contract.
