LAMM AT LARGE: Is Tom Brady Really Worth More In The TV Booth?

Can Tom Brady really be worth more in the TV booth than on the field?
Fox Sports obviously thinks so. The network has signed Brady to a contract reportedly worth $375 for 10 years starting whenever the 44-ear-old QB retires. It’s reportedly all guaranteed.
His contract comes on the heels of NFL broadcasters making more money than star players. Tong Romeo makes $18 million at CBS; ESPN recently stole Troy Aikman ($18 million) and Joe Buck ($15 million) from Fox Sports.
How can these guys be worth that kind of people?  Do people tune in based on who’s in the booth? NO!
No doubt Brady will make a big difference for his debut, but after that — whether he’s good or bad — it’ll be about the game. Brady could be great like Romeo or a dud like Joe Montana.
Good for Brady, Romeo, Aikman and Buck, but this is madness.
What in the name of Keith Jackson is going on here?
