Tom Brady will give NFL audiences ‘stuff we just die for’ when he starts his $375million broadcasting contract with Fox next season. 

The seven-time Super Bowl winner will replace the highly-popular Greg Olsen at Fox and work alongside Kevin Burkhardt in the booth next season.

Brady will be behind the microphone for the first time for the Cowboys-Browns game in Week 1.

And he’s been backed to use his vast experience of playing under center in the NFL to bring a new level of insight to fans watching at home.

His Fox co-star Erin Andrews and her podcasting partner Clarissa Thompson were on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and gave a rousing endorsement of Brady.

‘And it’s stuff we just die for. Love the inside information. And you are just hearing stuff that you’ve just always wanted to know.’ 

‘His resume supports that he is great at everything he does, so why would this be any different,’ Thompson added during the conversation. 

Brady has previously spoken about what he thinks he can bring to the booth. 

‘I believe I can provide a pretty unique perspective that I think a lot of people will really like,’ he told Front Office Sports in March.

‘It’s going to be a lot of hard work. It’s going to be a lot of fun.

‘It’s always about challenging yourself to grow in different areas. And this is certainly one way that I’m doing it.’ 

Olsen – who won a Sports Emmys award last week – recently revealed that Brady approached him for advice as he gears up for a career in broadcasting.

While Brady may have snagged Olsen’s spot as FOX’s top NFL analyst, the former Panthers star did not hold grudges and was more than willing to give the seven-time Super Bowl winner his insights.

In an interview with USA Today, Olsen revealed that he met with Brady and reiterated the challenges of being in the broadcast booth.

‘I had a chance to speak with Tom a couple of weeks ago, and he was just kind of picking my brain about the prep and the industry and what to expect and whatnot,’ Olsen shared.

‘So, I don’t know. Every guy has their own journey in sports broadcasting.

‘I think everyone thinks it’s easy. I think everyone thinks getting up there and calling a live football game for three hours, off the cuff and being able to get in, get out, deal with the flow of the game, the players, the schemes, the terminology.’
