Tom Brady reinforced the notion of his departure from the NFL after announcing his move to the broadcasting booth in 2024.
The seven-time Super Bowl champion quarterback seemed to further affirm the end of his NFL career when he informed sports commentator Colin Cowherd on Monday that he will be starting his career as a Fox broadcaster in time for the 2024 football season.
“Tom Brady tells [ColinCowherd] on [FS1] that he will start his broadcast career with FOX in the Fall of 2024," a tweet from Herd w/ Colin Cowherd said.

Brady stepped away from the NFL last week after a remarkable 23-season career, during which he made multiple trips to the Super Bowl and earned a total of seven championship rings. He also received 15 Pro Bowl honors.
The future Hall of Famer informed Cowherd that he was grateful to Fox for allowing him time to "decompress" after playing in the NFL for over 20 years. He expressed excitement about taking time to learn and become skilled in his next career and emphasized his desire to avoid rushing into anything.
Brady stated his wish to excel not only in his role at Fox, but also in other aspects of his life that "need some time and energy," although he did not specify what those were.
In the widely-shared Instagram video, Brady expressed gratitude to his fans and supporters before announcing his official retirement from the NFL after 23 seasons.
