Brady doesn’t assume he’ll be good at being an NFL analyst without “a lot of growing pains”
As his playing career winds down, Brady believes his transition to a broadcaster will be similar to preparing for games in the NFL, but with more pain.
The GOAT, Tom Brady, has been the talk of the town for some time now after rumors of joining the Miami Dolphins arised.
The 34- year-old, who came back from his 40-day “retirement” to rejoin the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, has already secured his career upon his eventual retirement from the field to become Fox Sports’ lead analyst. And while he seems like the kind of guy who is ready for anything, the seven-time Super Bowl champion knows he will have to outgrow “a lot of growing pains, and learn to be really good at it.”
During an interview aired on Wednesday morning with Dan Patrick, Brady commented on his surprising decision to become a broadcast analyst and how he felt about that.
Is Brady a natural future broadcaster?
Prior to the announcement by Fox, Brady was viewed as arguably the greatest quarterback in the history of the NFL, not a guy who’s seen sitting in a booth every Sunday. And even though Brady landed a contract surpassing the current $18 million other legit broadcasters make, he does not assume he will do just as well in the booth as on the field.
Brady: “It will be a totally new career”
“There’s a lot of learning curve; obviously, it will be a totally new career,” said Brady. “It’s a new opportunity for me to try something that I’m going to work really hard to prepare to be as good as I possibly can be, knowing that the day I walk on the set for the first time won’t be my finest moment. There’ll be a lot of growing pains, and I’ll have to learn to be really good at it.”
