The internet has jokes for Tom Brady after learning that the Buccaneers quarterback already had another lucrative job after his NFL career ended.
Fox Sports confirmed Tuesday that Brady will join the network as a senior analyst, calling the NFL’s biggest games, after hanging up his jersey for good.
It was all the critics needed to troll Brady about his seemingly never-ending love affair with football, which kept him from spending more time with his model wife Gisele Bunchen and their children – his son Benjamin, 12, and daughter Vivian, 9. Brady has a 14-year-old son, Jack, from a previous relationship with actress Bridget Moynahan.
“Tom Brady said he wanted to retire because he owes his time to his family now. The dude just took a job calling football games all season once he retired. It’s really fk kids lmao”, another fan tweeted.
In response to the announcement of his upcoming concert with Fox, Brady tweeted“Excited, but lots of unfinished business on the court with the @Buccaneers.”
Brady announced after last season that he was leaving the field, but announced the end of his short 40-day retirement in March to return to Tampa Bay to take care of some “unfinished business.”
He later explained that the “very bitter end” to last season – when the Buccaneers suffered a 30-27 loss to the Rams in the NFC Divisional Round – did not sit well with him. Los Angeles then beat the Bengals to win the Super Bowl in February.
Brady, who turns 44 in August, opened up about life after football in an interview last May and admitted he was “a little scared” when he quit playing the game that won him seven league titles. Super Bowl. It was also at a time when Brady didn’t yet have a broadcast seat waiting for him.
