NFL legend Tom Brady will be subject to roasting in Netflix’s upcoming series titled “Greatests Roasts Of All Time: GROAT”. Brady is also an executive producer of the platform’s special, and his roast will be taped in 2023, following the next NFL season. 

“To quote my good friend, Marshawn Lynch … ‘I’m just here so I won’t get fined”, Brady said, as per Deadline. 

Robbie Praw, Netflix Vice President of Stand-up and Comedy Formats, added “We can’t wait to burn three-time Super Bowl-losing quarterback Tom Brady, who only went back to the NFL in order to delay this roast”, continuing, “In all seriousness, it’s a huge thrill to work with the greatest football player of all time on this project. No one’s better at taking hits and still coming out on top, so we know the roast will be a breeze for Brady.”

Though the NFL legend announced his retirement in January, this year, Brady reversed his decision two months later. Most recently, Brady signed a deal with Fox to be their lead NFL analyst

The deal will reportedly pay him $375 million over 10 years, making it more than his current cumulative earnings as an NFL player. Brady’s deal with Fox is slated to take effect when he winds down his football career, and the NFL pro has stated that he is excited but still has time left with the Buccaneers.
