NFL legend Tom Brady is back to working in football, but this time, he's wearing a suit and tie along with a broadcasting headset instead of a game jersey and helmet.

That's right, Brady has officially made his broadcasting debut with FOX Sports on Sunday, serving as an analyst for the United Football League championship game between the Birmingham Stallions and San Antonio Brahmas.

A video of Brady making his debut at the booth along with play-by-play announcer Curt Menefee and color commentator and analyst Joel Klatt has since gone viral. In the said segment, TB12 appeared to emphasize that he's retired and “can't go down there on the field anymore.”

As NFL fans would know, Brady signed a 10-year, $375 million deal with FOX Sports back in 2022 to be its lead analyst once he retires. Now that he's out for the game for a year and fully retired, he seems ready to get back to the game he loves.

As one would expect from an analyst, Brady shared his observations about the UFL championship game after a slow start offensively from both the Stallions and Brahmas. Before Birmingham QB Adrian Martinez get the attack going before the end of the first half, it was all defense between both teams.

In response, Brady noted that “someone's gotta get the ball down the field and try to open this field up a little bit,” via NBC Los Angeles.

“It's a lot of horizontal passes, and the defenses are swarming and trying to punch the ball out. So, make them defend every blade of glass, that's what we used to say,” Brady added.

The Stallions went on to dominate with their tough defense and take the 25-0 victory over the Brahmas. In the presentation ceremony, Tom Brady took on another role as he presented the MVP trophy to Martinez.

Tom Brady previously promised to be a “jerk” in the FOX booth once he makes his debut. For now, though, fans will have to wait for that version of TB12 as he learns the ropes of his new job.

Fans react to Tom Brady's broadcasting debut

Sure enough, Brady's fans have plenty to say about his work as a football analyst. While some couldn't help but mention that he still seems eager to play, many supporters pointed out that he did great in his debut. Others also shared their excitement to see him cover NFL games.

“He’s going to be great in the booth. Can’t wait,” a commenter said.

“I can't wait for him to call NFL games. Hope his commentary is as good as his playing,” a fan added.

Another social media user shared, “The Brady play-calling prequel on Fox today was interesting. I think he’s going to do just fine. Nantz and Romo on CBS might end up number two (overall) now…”

A supporter added, “Awww. He looks slightly nervous but still doing a great job.”

“Brady is a natural!” a fifth fan shared.

It's safe to say it's a great start for Brady in his broadcasting career. It's also nice to see him get through some live run as some sort of practice before the 2024 NFL season fully begins. True enough, many will be watching to hear what he has to say for the other teams in the league.
