NFL star Tom Brady will work as a TV expert at US broadcaster Fox after the end of his football career. Both sides agreed on this last year. Brady collects an unbelievable sum for his ten-year contract.

What’s next for Tom Brady after his career ends? All football fans can sit back and relax. Brady will remain with football as a TV pundit for the next ten years. He signed a contract with US broadcaster Fox last year.
For this, Brady collects a total of $ 375 million – almost as much as he received in his 23-year NFL career as a footballer. So Brady gets $37.5 million per season. That makes a monthly TV salary of 3.125 million dollars. An unbelievable sum!
No former NFL star has ever received so much money from a TV station. But Brady has earned these millions, because with seven Super Bowl titles, the 45-year-old is the most successful footballer of all runners-up. No other player has won more NFL titles in his career.
For comparison: The US TV broadcaster CBS pays Tony Romo, ex-quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys, $ 17 million per season. Troy Aikman, also a former Dallas Cowboys quarterback, has been paid a total of $90 million by ESPN for his five-year contract.
In comparison, Adam Schefter (ESPN), the most well-known NFL journalist in the USA, earns nine million dollars, according to a report. That sum is astronomical for a sportswriter, but tiny compared to Brady’s new salary.

Brady has Schefter’s annual salary in less than three months. But against the background of the new TV package, Brady’s salary also pales in comparison. The NFL received a total of 110 billion dollars from four different television stations for the eleven-year TV broadcast.
Fox pays $660 million per season just for the 16 “Thursday Night Football” games alone. Brady’s total earnings from his active football career are estimated to be approximately $350 million. There are also various advertising contracts.
His current net worth is estimated at more than $200 million. Brady also owns several expensive properties, his own fashion brand (“BRADY”) and is a manufacturer of performance items such as supplements (“TB12”). Brady no longer has to worry about his finances.
