The NFL broadcasting landscape is in the process of some big changes. Among the shifts about to take place, legendary quarterback, Tom Brady will join Fox Sports as its lead analyst once he retires from the NFL. ESPN “Get Up” host Mike Greenberg reported the news on Tuesday morning after Fox made the announcement. The seven-time Super Bowl champion quarterback and five-time MVP will call games along with play-by-play announcer Kevin Burkhardt.
The Brady news comes in the wake of Troy Aikman and Joe Buck moving from Fox Sports to host “Monday Night Football” on ESPN.
Brady had initially announced his retirement from the NFL in February of this year after 22 seasons but then changed his mind. “These past two months I have realized my place is still on the field and not in the stands,” Brady wrote in a March Instagram post about his decision to return to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The 44-year-old Brady tweeted that he was excited about eventually joining Fox Sports, but still had “a lot of unfinished business on the field with the Buccaneers.”
