“We are delighted that Tom has committed to joining the Fox team and we wish him all the best,” Fox Corp. CEO Lachlan Murdoch announced during an earnings call this morning. "Excited, but a lot of unfinished business on the field with the @Buccaneers #LFG," tweeted Brady. Brady's hiring has led to speculation that Brady is being paid a massive salary to work for Fox. "Surely, he’ll walk through the door as the highest paid of any of the current analysts. Why else would he have agreed to do it, if he wasn’t going to be making more than CBS’s Tony Romo or ESPN’s Troy Aikman?" says ProFootballTalk's Mike Florio. "The question isn’t whether he’ll exceed their annual compensation, but by how much. Could it be $30 million per year. Could it be more than that?" UPDATE: Brady reportedly signed a $375 million 10-year deal with Fox Sports -- or $37.5 million per year -- double Tony Romo's yearly CBS salary.
