Tom Brady will play at least one more NFL season and will continue to rack in millions. But once he does decide to retire, the seven-time Super Bowl champion is expected to rack in millions more doing analysis and/ or commentary.

In a report from ESPN, the future Hall of Famer is reportedly set to join Fox Sports as its lead NFL analyst once his professional football career ends. The deal was announced by Fox CEO Lachlan Murdoch during a corporate investor call.

"We are delighted that Tom has committed to joining the Fox team and wish him all the best during this upcoming season," Murdoch said.

The terms of his deal were not disclosed. However, the New York Post claims that it will be a 10-year deal worth $375 million.

The deal is branded as the most lucrative in the history of sports broadcasting. Also, the deal is nearly close to when Fox first landed the NFL rights nearly 30 years ago, paying the league $400 million per year.

As for Brady, this means he will earn $37.5 million annually which practically doubles the previous high of $18 million per year that Troy Aikman got from ESPN last February.

The deal will only start once Brady officially calls it an NFL career. That could happen as early as 2023 unless Brady is offered more than the annual $37.5 million he would get from Fox.

Brady responded to the update and tweeted he was excited to eventually join Fox. However, he also mentioned that he still has unfinished business with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for this coming NFL season.

“Excited, but a lot of unfinished business on the field with the @Buccaneers #LFG,” Brady tweeted.

After initially announcing his retirement the three-time NFL MVP announced in March that he would return to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for the 2022 NFL season.
