Tom Brady can move on from NFL to become an actor ?!
In case you haven’t heard, several reports on Saturday revealed that the 44-year-old athlete was planning to retire after 22 seasons in the league. And although we have not heard from the man even about the news, he reportedly already has something on the way after the end of his football career. A new report from Discussing movies claims to be producing his first feature film, Firs for Brady, with its production company, 199 productions. According to the report, the feature picture follows the story of a group of friends whose goal is to go to the Super Bowl and meet Brady.
Shockingly, Brady wants to star in the film as himself, but is also looking to hire “top talent” to participate in the project, including Grace & Frankie stars Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin. Brady reportedly wants to begin filming in late March.

In March 2020, Deadline reported that the star teamed up with Avengers: Endgame directors Joe and Anthony Russo to start 199 productions. At the time of the announcement, they already had a project underway called Unseen Football. But based on this report, it sounds like Brady will soon be dedicating a lot of time to this business during retirement! Well, that’s if the reports about his retirement ended up being true …
In the wake of the news, some people have come forward to claim that the quarterback’s future within the NFL is actually still in the air. According to Associated Press, two sources claimed that Brady told Tampa Bay Buccaneers General Manager Jason lys that he has not decided at present. As we have previously reported, his father, Tom Brady Sr., even told the NFL Network reporter Mike Giardi that the athlete “has not made a final decision in one way or another” yet. So his agent Don Yee later told ESPN:
“I understand the pre-speculation about Tom’s future. Without going into the accuracy or inaccuracy of what is being reported, Tom will be the only person to express his plans with complete accuracy. He knows the reality of the football industry and the planning calendar as well. good as anyone, so it should be soon. “
Basically, there are MANY questions about whether he should move to retire right now!
But it looks like Brady might want to wait before hanging his cleats up forever! According to Fox Business, he is set to receive a nice payout on February 4th. The father of three agreed to an extension of one year with the Bucs through the 2022 season. But if Brady travels before the date, Spotrac reports that he will potentially give up $ 15 million out of a $ 20 million signing bonus. If he stayed with the team through the date, his entire salary would be guaranteed but canceled if he retires.
FWIW: $ 15M of Tom Brady’s $ 20M signature bonus from March last year is set to be paid out on February 4, 2022. It seems like something a guy or girl would like to have dealt with before making life-changing career decisions officially.
