Tom Brady joining Fox Sports: winners, fallout, analysis

1. Fox announced this morning that Tom Brady will become its lead NFL analyst once he actually retires from playing. The beauty of this column being called Traina Thoughts is that I can just unload all my thoughts, and I have a lot, about this big sports media news. I’ll be professional and save my victory lap for the end.

– My first thought when I heard the news was: Clearly, the theory that Fox let Troy Aikman go to ESPN so it could save money on salary is totally false. Brady’s Fox salary hasn’t been leaked yet (I’m sure Andrew Marchand will have it sooner rather than later), but you can be assured it’s massive.
