Tom Brady To Take a Month Before Deciding To Return to NFL or Go to FOX

“Maybe he doesn’t want to broadcast, and that’s a standing offer. It’s not like he has to take it right now.”

Tom Brady is 45 years old. His future will be a source of speculation every year at the end of the NFL season. The end of the current season is no different, but a 10-year, $375 million deal with FOX is an element that has not been in the mix before. Jordan Schultz says that could stretch out the timeline before we get any certainty from the GOAT.

“He wants to take a month or two to really evaluate everything he has,” The Score’s NFL insider told Pat McAfee on Friday. “That means on the field, off the field, I think there are a couple of really important things to consider.”

Those things for Tom Brady are his family and his goals. Schultz pointed out that Brady has two kids living in Miami, which makes the Dolphins a realistic option for next season. He also has a son living in New York, so the Jets cannot be ruled out. The Las Vegas Raiders were also mentioned as a potential landing spot.

Schultz described Brady’s deal with FOX as “the elephant in the room” right now. The dollar figure is making the decision hard, but it likely will not be the determining factor.

“The thing you miss the most is the guys and the camaraderie, maybe not the grind of football, but those guys and those experiences,” Schultz said. “You don’t get that in the booth, but you do get the money and the lack of stress.”

Complicating the decision is the fact that Brady is not under a time crunch with FOX. The network doesn’t appear to be taking the offer off the table if he is not in the booth alongside Kevin Burkhardt by a pre-determined date.

“Maybe he doesn’t want to broadcast, and that’s a standing offer. It’s not like he has to take it right now.”

Jordan Schultz says that based on what he has heard, it is more likely that FOX will have to keep waiting. While it isn’t clear exactly what Brady’s goal for 2023 is, Schultz said he would be surprised to see Brady retire now.

Jim Nantz Knew Tony Romo Would Be A Great Analyst As A Player

“It was a show. He would get up out of his seat, he would talk about his throwing motion, running plays with imaginary receivers.”

For the last six years, Jim Nantz and Tony Romo have been the lead team for NFL coverage on CBS. Even when Romo was the Dallas Cowboy starting quarterback, Nantz knew that Romo was going to do big things based off of the production meetings.

On the latest episode of The Ryen Russillo PodcastNantz was a guest and told Russillo about how the production meetings with Romo were always filled with entertainment.

“Tony was the biggest show. That’s what first kind of tipped me off that this was something that was going to be his calling. It was a show. He would get up out of his seat, he would talk about his throwing motion, running plays with imaginary receivers. He walked through everything and you couldn’t help but think man if that guy could bring that to television, he would be extraordinary and he is.”

Over the years, Romo has received criticism for his broadcasting style and while Romo doesn’t predict as many plays as he did when he started, Nantz said that his partner wants to show he can do more in the booth and getting nitpicked by people comes with the exposure they get.

“It’s year 6 for the two of us. It’s now well over 100 games and it’s a high exposure. We had 30 some odd million people watching our game last week. When you are in someone’s living room that often, people can start to nitpick a little bit. I think the guy’s a genius. He’s one of my best friends and I love hanging out with him.”
