Erin Andrews reacts to news of Tom Brady joining Fox Sports

Erin Andrews seems pretty stoked about Fox Sports’ newest employee, Tom Brady.

Taking to her Instagram Stories on Tuesday, the longtime NFL sideline reporter, 44, posted a video of herself during a Peloton ride while casually commenting on the day’s events.

“Just doing a morning ride with my girl Kendall [Toole], anything new today? ” Andrews asked her 1.6 million followers before panning to a framed Brady jersey hanging on her wall.

The WEAR by Erin Andrews designer also tagged Brady, 44, in her post, along with Kevin Burkhardt, who will eventually work with the Buccaneers quarterback once he retires from the NFL – again.

Fox CEO Lachlan Murdoch announced this week that Brady will join Fox Sports as the network’s lead NFL analyst following the conclusion of his playing career. Brady, who is preparing for his 23rd season after a brief, 40-day retirement, said Tuesday he is “excited” about the opportunity.

“Excited, but a lot of unfinished business on the field with the @Buccaneers #LFG,” Brady tweeted.

Brady agreed to a 10-year, $ 375 million deal, according to The Post’s Andrew Marchand. The seven-time Super Bowl champ has already earned about $ 300 million over the course of his playing career, per Spotrac, and will be up to $ 333 million following the 2022 season.

This offseason has not just been a whirlwind for Brady, but for Andrews, too. Back in March, her longtime Fox colleagues, Troy Aikman and Joe Buck, exited the network for ESPN, where they’ll take over the “Monday Night Football” booth.

“This all happened fast,” Andrews said during a previous installment of her “Calm Down” podcast with Charissa Thompson.

“I was not expecting it. I’ll be completely honest, I do not think a lot of people were. I am known for being one tough cookie. I can deal with a lot of things, I have dealt with a lot of things, but when I had to speak to both of those guys separately when they both had officially left, oh God I cried. ”

Andrews added that she’s happy for Aikman and Buck as they embark on a new career venture.

“I do not hold it against anybody for leaving, look I left ESPN after being there for eight years and came to Fox,” she said. “They became my brothers and they became my [real] best friends so I’m sad but I’m so happy for them. ”

Aikman signed a five-year, $ 90 million deal with ESPN, while Buck agreed to a five-year contract worth $ 75 million.

Andrews, meanwhile, was rumored to be the next Fox free agent to bolt, but as sources told The Post in March, the network would like to keep her.
