Tom Brady not joining Fox ‘any time soon’ as NFL rumors swirl
One of Fox Sports’ biggest broadcasters has questions about how soon Tom Brady will join the network.
During Tuesday’s installment of his FS1 show, Colin Cowherd addressed recent rumors that Rich Eisen heard at the NFL Scouting Combine last week, in which Brady could potentially retire for a second straight offseason.

“Brady set some different records last year at age 45, attempts and completions. So many people are lame to the end; Elway didn’t, Derek Jeter didn’t, Kobe Bryant scored 61 in his last game as a Laker,” Coward added.

Brady, who announced his second NFL retirement in early February, has been enjoying family time since being away from football.
