REPORT: Greg Olsen’s Salary Will Take A Major Hit When Tom Brady Begins Broadcasting Career With FOX

Tom Brady’s eventual move to the broadcasting booth with FOX will not only bump Greg Olsen out of FOX’s top broadcasting team but it will also have a serious impact on Greg Olsen’s salary.

According to Andrew Marchand of the New York Post, Olsen will be knocked down to the No. 2 analyst spot at the network when Brady, who announced his retirement at the start of this month, decides to begin his on-air role. It’ll also drastically cut Olsen’s salary by 70 percent from $10 million to $3 million.

Marchand adds that if Brady had taken over this spot this year, Olsen’s contract would have gone from $50 million over the next five years to $22 million. 

Last summer, Brady and Fox agreed to a 10-year, $375 million deal for the seven-time Super Bowl champion to take over as the network’s lead NFL analyst following his retirement. The 45-year-old recently told soon-to-be Fox colleague Colin Cowherd that he doesn’t plan on beginning his broadcast gig until the fall of 2024.
