For much of the last two decades, Tom Brady and Larry Fitzgerald have dominated the NFL in their own ways — Brady with his record seven Super Bowl titles and Fitzgerald with his 1,432 receptions, which is good for the second-most of all time behind only Jerry Rice. But throughout both of their legendary careers, they’ve never been teammates.
Brady and Fitzgerald will finally be joining forces to host a weekly SiriusXM radio show throughout the 2021 NFL season. This should be fun.
Tom Brady and Larry Fitzgerald are entering the twilight of their careers
Brady and Fitzgerald have been playing in the NFL at a high level for what seems like forever. It’s been 21 years since Brady made his debut with the New England Patriots, while Fitzgerald was drafted by the Arizona Cardinals four years later in 2004.
Both players have already written Hall of Fame resumes in the NFL, and they’ll both be first-ballot inductions when they become eligible. But despite what Brady and Fitzgerald have accomplished over the last two decades, Father Time comes for everyone eventually.
Brady is entering his 22nd NFL season and just turned 44 years old. He’s stated on numerous occasions that he wants to play until age 45, and he recently signed a contract extension with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers that will keep him in uniform until then. It’s possible we have only two more seasons of watching Brady in the NFL.
As for Fitzgerald, we may have already seen the last of him in an NFL uniform. The longtime Cardinal still hasn’t shown up for training camp as he mulls his future with the team. A retirement announcement from the 37-year-old could be coming at any moment.
As the end of careers inch closer and closer, it’s time for Brady and Fitzgerald to start mapping out their plans for after football.
Brady and Fitzgerald are teaming up to form a power duo at SiriusXM
Brady and Fitzgerald aren’t just all-time greats at their respective craft on the football field. They’re also entertaining and engaging personalities off the field, and now they’re teaming up to give football fans an inside look at life in the NFL.
Starting in September, Brady and Fitzgerald, along with journalist Jim Gray, will co-host a weekly radio show on SiriusXM called “Let’s Go!” The hour-long show will air every Monday during the 2021 NFL season starting at 6 p.m. ET on SiriusXM’s Mad Dog Sports Radio. Episodes will also be available in podcast form after airing.
The two living legends will discuss news and notes from around the league, tell stories from their careers, and even give fans a deep dive into their lives away from the football field.
Fitzgerald ecstatic to finally team up with the GOAT
Who wouldn’t want to be teammates with the greatest quarterback and the most prolific winner the NFL has ever seen? Fitzgerald knows Brady is the GOAT, and he can’t wait to finally work with him and gain some valuable insight from the best to ever do it.
“While we never had the chance to play together, to be radio teammates with the GOAT, Tom Brady, is as good as it gets,” Fitzgerald said, per Brian Flood of Fox News. “I know with Jim and Tom, we will have a great show for the listeners on SiriusXM.”
Brady and Fitzgerald have been two of the most respected voices in the NFL circle for years, and this new endeavor could be just the stepping stone leading into their broadcast careers in retirement.
