Tom Brady retired for the second time on February 1 and called his football career done “for good.” However, this does not mean Brady will be leaving the NFL following his incredible playing career.

The seven-time Super Bowl champion received a massive 10-year, $375 million contract from FOX Sports to join play-by-play announcer Kevin Burkhardt as the lead analyst in the network’s top booth.

At the time, Brady was still a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he was supposed to start after his retirement. However, it appears the timeline of his post-football career has slightly changed.

Brady went on The Herd and talked to his fellow FOX colleague Colin Cowherd about his future after football. The future Hall-of-Fame quarterback said he will not start his broadcasting career until the fall of 2024.

Brady reportedly talked to FOX executives over the last week when coming to his decision.

This has been a topic of debate ever since Brady retired. Greg Olsen, the current lead analyst in the FOX booth, has been one of the best broadcasters in the NFL since he slid into the No. 1 booth with the network. Olsen will be the analyst for the Super Bowl for the first time when the Philadelphia Eagles face off against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.
