Tom Brady richer than ever
BET À DAY
Now that Tom Brady has retired as a player “for good”, he will be able to embark on his second career in the media, which should be more lucrative than his 23 season stint in the NFL.< /strong>
In May 2022, the 40-year-old signed a 10-year deal worth $375 million with Fox Sports. At the time, we learned that the pivot had agreed to join the network's team of experts when he was no longer at work in the field.
This will make him the highest paid analyst who works on the telecast of NFL games. The winner currently goes to former Dallas Cowboys quarterbacks Troy Aikman and Tony Romo, who get $18 million from ESPN and CBS, respectively.
- < strong>Listen to the summary by journalist Alexandre Moranville via QUB radio:
“I will be there in support. I'm here to share information. I know a lot about the sport, Brady told Variety magazine last July. I also have very high expectations for what players and coaches have to do on the pitch. I will have no problem criticizing things I disagree with and I will have no problem praising things that are exceptional.”
According to the specialized website Spotrac, Brady got his hands on nearly $333 million as a footballer. During his 20 season stint with the New England Patriots, he pocketed just over $235 million. His three campaigns with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers added just under $98 million to his prize pool.
Brady's earnings over his 23-year career are probably good higher than those amounts, since the holder of seven Super Bowl rings had many other economic activities while he was throwing balls.
In 2013, Brady founded his own brand, TB12. He has his own production company (199 Productions), which he established in 2020. The company develops documentaries, feature films and TV shows. Brady has also been at the heart of several advertising campaigns for brands like Wheaties, UGG, Movado, Smart Water and Tag Heuer.
The 45-year-old has also published a book: “The TB12 Method: How to Do What You Love, Better and for Longer”. The book ended up on the New York Times bestseller list.
