Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady has decided to join the FOX Sports analysis crew after his NFL retirement. The 7-time Super Bowl champion will be continuing his love for football away from the football field in the most lucrative deal in sports broadcasting history. The deal will see him calling games alongside lead play-by-play announcer Kevin Burkhardt.

Brady’s rumored deal will see him sign a 10-year, $375 million contract as the terms remain under wraps. The surprising news was first broken by FOX CEO Lachlan Murdoch in a corporate investor call with Brady becoming an ambassador for client and promotional initiatives.
