Tom Brady is set to become FOX's top broadcaster for the NFL this season. His $375 million role will begin in Week 1, but it will be the first time he has worked as a broadcaster. Ahead of that debut, he's looking to get some practice in at the UFL Championship Game.

A report from ProFootballTalk highlighted that Brady will be in town for the championship to hand out the trophy to the winning team. He is also very likely to call the game, but not for the television audiences and instead on the radio.

This will be his first time broadcasting, meaning he's subject to criticism but will also be able to get some valuable experience. Brady is known for relentlessly working hard, and he has the chance to put some effort into the new career he's going to start.

As of now, this is the only broadcasting he's slated to do before Week 1 of the NFL season, though he may end up adding preseason roles or other games to work up to it before then. The NFL season begins on September 5, but Sunday games on FOX are not until September 8.

Tom Brady is about to enter the world of broadcasting. It comes one year after he retired. A lot of players transition quickly, such as Tony Romo for example. Brady didn't, and explained why on "SI Media":

"For me, it was the only way to do it," Brady said. "I realized that to come off of playing season and then to jump right into that, it’s a whole ‘nother discipline to learn and I really wanted to take some time to watch, listen and learn and talk to people."

He added that he wants to talk to people who he views as the "greatest" in this realm and that he has been overwhelmed by the support he's already received. Brady was the most successful NFL player during his career, and now he will try to take that to the broadcast booth.
