Earlier this week, we reported that legendary quarterback Tom Brady was retiring from the NFL after a 22-year career in which he won seven Super Bowls. Now, sources are coming forward to give fans an idea about what’s next for the 44-year-old athlete.
I played for the name on the front of my jersey and the name on the back of my jersey. I played for my friends, my family & our community – every single one of you – that have given me what I have today.
I love you all. Thank you ALL for making this incredible journey possible pic.twitter.com/3jmNWid9ZB

What’s Next For Brady?
When he announced his retirement, Brady said that “the future is exciting … exactly what my days will look like will be a work-in-progress.”
He went on to say that while he will be taking things “day by day,” he definitely wants to “spend a lot of time giving to others and trying to enrich other people’s lives, just as so many have done for me.”
However, a source has revealed to People Magazine that Brady is already fielding broadcasting offers, meaning that fans may not have him off their televisions for very long.
“There are a lot of projects in the works. He also has crazy offers from networks who want him to be a broadcaster,” the source said, going on to add that Brady’s agent Jason Hodes has gotten an “unprecedented volume of opportunities ranging from broadcast and streaming offers to publishing and brand deals” for him.
“Tom wasn’t focused on broadcasting at all, but he’s getting so many offers, and they’re projecting these huge salaries” that are in the tens of millions of dollars range, according to this insider.
Brady Focusing On Family
That being said, the source added that Brady is currently focused on spending time with his family, who will be staying in Tampa, Florida for the foreseeable future.
Brady had described his family as his “greatest achievement” in his retirement announcement.
“I always came off the field and home to the most loving and supportive wife who has done EVERYTHING for our family to allow me to focus on my career,” Brady said, referring to his supermodel wife Gisele Bündchen. “Her selflessness allowed me to reach new heights professionally, and I am beyond words what you mean to me and our family.”
Bündchen Happy Brady Is Retiring
Another source claimed that Bündchen is happy about Brady’s decision to retire.
“Gisele has been hoping he would retire already for a few years, especially after he won the Super Bowl with the Bucs,” this insider said. “She’s really happy because she would really worry about him. She hates seeing him get hit.”
Given Brady’s many years of experience on the football field, broadcasting might be the way to go for him! It will certainly be interesting to see what his commentary is, should he take one of these offers.
