Tom Brady produced one hell of an NFL career before announcing his retirement this offseason. Now the legendary quarterback will focus on his post career life. However, his latest comments don’t seem to suggest he may stay away from the game long.
The former Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB, who announced last month that he was retiring from football, was on Fred Couples’ SIRIUS XM radio show and sounded like a guy who was not happy to be retired from the game he loves.
Rumors have been flying since Brady’s announcement that the QB is not really done with football. He said on his Sirius XM podcast he would “never say never” to the possibility of playing again, and NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero and Ian Rapoport reported on Feb. 13 that Tampa Bay is leaving the door for Brady to return in case he changes his mind.
Brady has not publicly indicated a desire to reverse his decision, but it seems he would have no trouble finding a place in the team if he did.
He left New England as a free agent after the 2020 season and signed with the Bucs where he led the team to a Super Bowl win in his first season there.
Brady retired as the NFL’s all-time leader in passing yards (84,520), touchdown passes (624), completions (7,263), regular season wins (243), playoff wins (35) and Super Bowl MVPs (five).
