Although they were opponents in Super Bowl 44, they are teammates on this business venture. NFL Hall of Famer, New York Giants legend and successful TV anchor, Michael Strahan is working with Tom Brady on a sports media company called Religion of Sports.

This past August, the company got financial support by receiving $10 million from companies such as Courtside Ventures, LinkinFirm, Advancit Capital and Elysian Park. Religion of Sports CEO, Ameeth Sankaran said, “Our stories answer the question ‘Why sports matter’ and delve into deeper human and emotional storytelling.” So the company has produced the Facebook Watch documentary about Tom Brady’s training during the offseason and other documentaries about NBA superstar Stephen and sprint gold medalist Usian Bolt to mention a few. Whenever Brady decides to hang it up, don’t be surprised if the Religion of Sports produces a few more documentaries about him.

Not that kind of autograph, it’s a NFT (non-fungible token) company that Brady has founded and launched along with Richard Rosenblatt. Autograph will have digital artists collaborate with famous figures in sports, entertainment, fashion and pop culture to create collectables. Rosenblatt said, “Autograph will bring together some of the world’s most iconic names and brands with best in class digital artists to ideate, create and launch NFTs and ground-breaking experiences to a community of fans and collectors.” Brady has a solid team of advisors behind him such as LA Dodgers and Golden State Warriors owner Peter Guber, Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer,Cameo CEO Steven Galanis, Draft Kings CEO Jason Robins and co-founder Paul Liberman most notably. It is still in the beginning stages, but the potential is infinite. Considering the star studded staff at Autograph, it shouldn’t take much convincing for A list celebrities to collaborate with them.

With the luxury being a star athlete offers, many decide to own multiple homes in different cities. So when someone like Tom Brady wants to sell one of his houses, it’s guaranteed that the bidding price will be a high one. In 2014, he sold his Los Angeles mansion to Dr. Dre, one of the richest artists in rap music, for $40 million. In New York, his luxury condo is worth $20 million and Yellowstone Club is $4 million along with it’s other charges to join the club and other fees. Expect there to be more real estate investments from Brady when he retires.

Something he used as a chip on his shoulder to motivate him to become an all time great NFL player.
