WASHINGTON, DC - JULY 20: Quarterback Tom Brady arrives for a ceremony with U.S. President Joe Biden as he welcomes the 2021 NFL Super Bowl champions Tampa Bay Buccaneers to the South Lawn of the White House on July 20, 2021 in Washington, DC. (Photo by Drew Angerer/Getty Images)

While there’s no shortage of speculation about Tom Brady ending his retirement to return to the NFL, a new report suggests he could be back in the league for the 2022 season – but not as a quarterback. Instead, the seven-time Super Bowl champion is expected to have a chance to head to the broadcast booth.

According to Andrew Marchand of the New York Post, Brady “will receive calls from Amazon and Fox” as the networks look to fill out their broadcast teams for 2022. Both are looking for a new top color commentator – Fox recently lost Troy Aikman to ESPN, while Amazon is in its first year broadcasting NFL games.

Would Brady consider broadcasting as the next stage of his career? After all, he’s been heavily involved in various media projects in recent years including starting his own production company 199 Productions. He will also reportedly be producing and starring as himself in a movie next year.
