The greatest of them all has retired. After 23 seasons of electrifying performances, Tom Brady has decided to hang up his cleats and move onto the next chapter of his life. But this isn’t the end of Tom Brady, it’s just the beginning. The NFL legend is taking a year off to prepare for his next venture in the broadcasting booth with FOX Sports.

In his first interview since retiring, Brady spoke to Colin Cowherd on “The Herd” about his decision to take a year off before joining FOX Sports in the Fall of 2024. Brady said he wanted to take the time to become great at what he wants to do and make sure he doesn’t rush into anything. After 23 seasons in the NFL, Brady left as the NFL career leader in touchdown passes, passing yards and most league passing marks.

Brady said broadcasting, like his football career, gives him a chance to find success with people that believe in him. He wants to take the time to prepare himself to do well as a broadcaster and also catch up on other parts of his life that need some time and energy. He said the “finality” of his decision to retire came last week, and he’s looking forward to the exciting things ahead.
