After Inking $375 Million Dollar Deal Tom Brady Makes TV Debut During UFL Championship

In the wake of signing a 10-year, $375 million deal with Fox, Tom Brady made his first official on-air TV appearance, when he announced the inaugural UFL title game, in which the Birmingham Stallions defeated the San Antonio Brahmas 25-0 Sunday.

Coming off of getting his No. 12 jersey retired at the Patriots Hall of Fame induction ceremony last week, the 46-year-old legendary quarterback had his first day of work as a sportscaster, joining Curt Menefee and Joel Klatt in the Fox Sports broadcasting booth. Despite being a rookie at his new job, Brady seemed like a seasoned vet.

Brady, who is used to being interviewed after winning championships, found himself playing the role of the interviewer. The seven-time Super Bowl winner was on the field after the game with the Birmingham championship team, as he presented quarterback Adrian Martinez with the MVP award.

The former Nebraska standout threw for 98 pass yards to go along with one passing touchdown. In addition, he rushed for 52 yards and had two rushing TD's. Since being cut by the Lions last year, Martinez now has quite the trophy collection ever since joining the UFL. That is to say, he has a UFL title, UFL MVP, and now a UFL championship game MVP to add to his resume.

As for TB12, his debut with the mic was met with mostly positive reviews, as he might be the most popular  commentator of all time.

Being the highest paid announcer, Brady has much hype surrounding him and his new career, even from his own colleagues. Fox sports media member and TV personality Erin Andrews, spoke on working with Brady.

"I've sat with him at lunch before and he's been telling stories about his career... And it's stuff we just die for. Love the inside information. And you are just hearing stuff that you've just always wanted to know." Andrews said while being interviewed on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon."

After fans have been able to watch him play on the field during his 23-year NFL career, they will now get to listen to Brady, who will be in the press box throughout this upcoming 2024 season.

During week one of the NFL season Brady will put the headset back on, as he will be on the announcing crew when the Cleveland Browns host the Dallas Cowboys on September 8 at 4:25 pm ET.
