NFL Radio: Tom Brady’s Retirement Plan, Football Christmas, Free Agents Still Available

Tom Brady has shown quite a talent for upstaging other news with announcements of his own during the past few months, mostly regarding his possible retirement and what he’ll do after he stops playing football. This week, he hijacked the NFL news cycle with Fox Sports announcing that the seven-time Super Bowl winner will be their lead TV analyst (and “brand ambassador”) when he finally retires.

On WISE Sports Radio, we discuss Brady’s huge broadcasting payday, the NFL announcing its 2022 schedule (which includes three games on Christmas Day), Josh Lambo suing the Jacksonville Jaguars for how he was treated under Urban Meyer, and notable free agents still available including receivers Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry, and cornerback James Bradberry.
