Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady has a job lined up for him when he’s done playing quarterback. Brady will join Fox Sports as the network’s top broadcast analyst for NFL games.

Excited, but a lot of unfinished business on the field with the @Buccaneers
#LFG,” Brady wrote on Twitter on Tuesday after the news broke.

Brady has, of course, done the media circuit during his years in the NFL, particularly after multiple Super Bowl wins — which leads to invites from some of the biggest talk shows in entertainment. Brady also has his own podcast and TV production company, which has worked with ESPN and other sports media companies to create documentaries, mostly about Brady himself.

“Tom will not only call our biggest NFL games with Kevin Burkhardt, but will also serve as an ambassador for us, particularly with respect to client and promotional initiatives,” Fox Sports said in a statement on Tuesday.

As good as Brady has been at quarterback — and he’s arguably the best ever — he may not project naturally to a role in media, in part because he remains somewhat rigid and unwilling to share information when on screen. Perhaps because he spent so many years with the Patriots — who are vigilant about safeguarding information — Brady has never been good at the entertainment side of media. That will have to change when he joins Fox.

Brady will follow in the footsteps of one of the most successful quarterback-turned-analyst: Tony Romo. He is the best in the business. Perhaps Romo can help Brady with the transition.
