Dr. Jenn Mann fears Tom Brady could have a difficult time adjusting to retirement on the back of a 23-year professional football career (H/T TMZ).
The future NFL Hall of Famer announced his retirement earlier this week amid expectations he would play at least one more season.
Mann, a couples therapy doctor, is probably right in her assessment given that Brady didn’t take very long to change his mind the first time he tried retiring. She has recommended therapy for the 45-year-old, who she says could have a “very difficult transition.”
Dr. Jenn noted that it’s normal for ex-athletes to struggle once they can no longer play. Brady’s situation might be a bit different considering how good he was at what the did and how successful he was at it. As such, Mann says she’s worried the next few months could be a proper challenge for the former Patriots and Buccaneers star.
