Brady confirms that he’ll join Fox this fall as the lead analyst but will not form a three-person booth with Greg Olsen.

Olsen, who has become a fan favorite, will drop down to Fox’s No. 2 crew.


Olsen might be taking a $7 million pay cut unless he renegotiates his deal.

Olsen's Fox deal currently pays him $10 million a year, but that will drop to $3 million if he's not the network's No. 1 color guy

"I've been out to the FOX studios a few times and I'm really excited to join an amazing team..

Greg Olsen does an incredible job and I have so much respect for him..

I'm gonna go in there and do the best I can do with my own perspective" ~ @TomBrady

I watched the interview this morning. He didn't confirm he would replace Olsen. He said he can't wait to JOIN an amazing team.

I do expect him to replace Olsen but the wording still leaves the possibility of Olsen being in the booth with him

Hot take, at first everyone on this board will say he sucks whether he does or not. As time passes it will be split just like every other guy.

So, the opposite of Romo?

Just more preferential treatment for Brady. You have a proven commodity in Olsen that you’re seemingly bumping out of the prime spot in favor of a complete novice in the booth simply because of name recognition.

Looked like Brady used this season to get more work done in preparation for the tv work.

No he didn’t.

That is the most click-baity article I’ve ever read. He said nothing about replacing Greg Olsen or being the lead analyst next year.

Then why is he being dropped down to the number 2 crew?

Olsen isn't getting a pay cut, even if he loses the #1 gig.

Greg Olsen has a face that looks like it belongs on a Family Guy cartoon character

Stupid move by Fox. They hit on a good thing in Olsen and they shite can him for Brady. They have no idea if Brady will be worth a damn, he literally has never been in the booth before. Its more likely he fails than succeeds.

See: Drew Brees in every form of broadcasting they gave him a shot at.

FOX is paying Brady a reported $375,000,000 over 10 years. They will find a way to put him in the #1 spot with the most viewers. Overpaying for a non-proven talent. Aikman and Romo both make $18M/year
