Tom Brady has played in the NFL for more than 20 seasons. At some point, he will step away from the game and he already knows what he will do next. The seven-time Super Bowl champion wil join the Fox broadcasting booth and will serve as their brand ambassador.
That’s a pretty post-football plan for a player that has racked up pretty much every record and accomplishment in the NFL books. Brady had the top-selling jersey in the most recent NFLPA list, meaning that he’s still relevant after all these years. This is a great pickup for Fox, who lost their top announcer, Troy Aikman, to ESPN earlier this year.
Brady is far from the only NFL player that has moved to the broadcasting booth once they hung up the cleats. Aikman himself also made the transition to TV analyst once his football career was over. Hall-of-Fame left tackle Tony Boselli has also done some work on TV and the radio and it would be great to see these three Jaguars players follow the same path in the future.
1. Jaguars who should join the broadcasting boot – Marvin Jones, WR.
Wide receiver Marvin Jones Jr. is one of the most respected veterans in the Jaguars’ locker room. He’s the kind of player that leads with example and when he speaks, his teammates listen.
Since being drafted in 2012, Jones has suited up for three clubs, the Jags, the Cincinnati Bengals, and the Detroit Lions. He could bring an inside perspective of how different NFL teams are run. Also, he’s played with several quarterbacks and knows what makes them successful.
But there’s more than just football when it comes to football. He’s an investor, having opened a bakery shop back in 2018. In fact, Jones showed how business savvy he is when he refuted and roasted talking head Darrell Rovell. He could bring a unique insight that would make the games he announces must-watch TV.
