NFL star on Tom Brady’s path to broadcast success

NFL star on Tom Brady’s path to broadcast success

Former NFL star Shawne Merriman recently revealed how retired football legend Tom Brady can make himself stand out as he begins his broadcasting career this fall with Fox Sports. 

Brady signed a 10-year, $375million deal with Fox to become their lead color commentator on football games, and will be high above stadiums every Sunday with the most prominent game involving an NFC team every week. 

Brady’s first NFL assignment will be calling Cowboys-Browns, with his remaining games to be announced. 

Merriman made his name off being tenacious and disrupting quarterbacks at Maryland before doing the same in the NFL. 

The former Charger and Bill is hoping Brady will do the same from the other side of the ball.

‘His ability to take you into a play mentally and articulate … people say things, and you can start envisioning (it) in your head,’ Merriman told Fox News of Brady’s potential. 

“That’s what’s going to separate Tom Brady possibly from everyone else,’ Merriman continued. ‘And I’ve been on the short end of the stick with that, because I know how he analyzes the game.’ 

‘But his ability to articulate and have your mind track what he’s talking about, that’s how good he is. He may go down as one of the best to ever do it because he has so much knowledge of the game,’ Merriman added. 

‘But if you really, really look at Tom Brady and listen to him, he can articulate and make your brain track what he’s talking about. And that’s what’s going to separate him from everybody,’ Merriman continued. 

Former quarterbacks have been analysts and in broadcast booths before such as Tony Romo, Terry Bradshaw and Phil Simms. 

Now Brady, as the most prolific quarterback of all-time, can help the next generation of NFL fans understand the gridiron better.
