Tom Brady’s plate remains full after retirement announcement

TAMPA, Fla. — Tom Brady’s future numbers are busy.

The announcement of the seven-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback’s retirement ended speculation about if and where Brady would like to play next season and opened the door to numerous off-field endeavors that could take up his time.

Last May, it was announced that whenever Brady retires from his playing career, he would join Fox Sports as the network’s lead NFL analyst on a 10-year, $375 million deal.

The 45-year-old Hall of Famer-to-be, who said Wednesday he is finally retiring, already has numerous commercial endorsements and an extensive business portfolio that includes health and fitness company TB12, which he co-owns with a close Founded by friend and longtime trainer Alex Guerrero.

A look at some of the things to keep Brady busy:

TV TOM

While there’s no official word on when Brady might start working for FOX Sports, the network will be broadcasting next weekend’s Super Bowl from Glendale, Arizona, and it’s not inconceivable that at least one Brady cameo is in the works could be.

Brady holds numerous Super Bowl records, including appearances in title games (10), wins (seven), and MVP honors (five).

TOM THE BUSINESSMAN

With facilities in Tampa, Boston and Foxboro, Massachusetts, TB12 is just part of the business empire Brady began building while playing against the New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Other projects he has started include his own clothing brand BRADY, 199 Productions, founded three years ago to develop documentaries, feature films and television shows; and Autograph, an NFT company.

CELEBRITY TOM

Brady announced his retirement a day after attending the Los Angeles premiere of 80 for Brady — which comes out Friday. The film tells the story of four lifelong friends, played by Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda, Rita Moreno and Sally Field, who go to the Super Bowl to see Brady play.

Chances are pretty good that Brady will appear on a talk show or two to talk about the film in which he has a cameo.

At the premiere he was asked if he feels connected to working with women – the four stars are aged between 76 and 91 – who do not want to retire.

“They work hard and they love it. So good for her,” Brady told The Associated Press. “You know, that’s what life is about. You have to, you know, wake up every day with a purpose. And when you find something you love to do, you know it’s hard to stop.”

Brady was into football. Now fans are waiting to see what comes next.

TOM THE FAMILY MAN

When Brady briefly retired last winter — only to announce 40 days later that he was returning for a 23rd NFL season that didn’t go nearly as well as he envisioned — the father-of-three spoke of his desire to spend more time with family.

In the months since his 13-year marriage to model Gisele Bundchen ended in October, Brady has continued to emphasize the importance of his children and fatherhood.

He has a son and daughter who live with Bummel in South Florida, where Brady also has a home. He also has an older son with actress Bridget Moynahan, who lives in New York.

TB12 CONSTITUTIONAL OBLIGATIONS

Brady’s charitable foundation is one of his passions, and has been for some time.

The foundation has a grant program that, according to the TB12 website, has provided thousands of treatment sessions to help athletes of all ages and backgrounds “who would not normally be able to access quality rehabilitation and/or performance following an injury.” receive or be able to afford rehabilitation training.”

He could do even more to support this effort.

Whatever Brady does, one thing is certain: he has no shortage of career opportunities after hanging up his cleats.
