Sure, he threw up a real stinker against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday but it’s hard to imagine Tom Brady not having a lot left in the tank, even at the age of 45.
Would the NFL really be better off without the man most consider to be its greatest-ever player? That nearly turned out to be the case last year after the quarterback retired, but he ended up having a change of heart.
Considering the above, just about everyone assumed this season would be his last. However, due to the way things are going on a personal front, many believe Brady will be back for at least another campaign.
The NFL Network recently reported that the veteran QB is keeping his options open heading into next season. He could either stay with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, sign with another team in free agency or call it quits for good this time.

Tom Brady Is Not A Popular Man Right Now
Brady’s divorce from supermodel Gisele Bundchen is understood to be the reason he isn’t likely to retire at the end of the season anymore. And it appears some fans are not happy with her as the divorce appears to be keeping Brady on the field.
“Honestly, just retire. Sign a one-day contract with New England and retire a Patriot. You’ve accomplished enough, sir. Be with your family and get your wife back,” one fan wrote as a reaction, per Thespun.com.
“Not shocked at all. I expect him to play next season tbh,” another wrote.
“Not gonna lie…I have never disliked an athlete more in my life,” another added. “I feel like I am personally to blame for him unretiring coming back and now continuing to play forever.”
One fan implied that he’d rather watch Brady play than have to listen to him talk, with the QB set for a multi-million dollar analytical position with FOX that will kick in once he retires.
“Great as the haters think he should retire and as far as his big money job after he does retire that won’t last..boring man to listen too. Keep Playing pal,” was the sentiment.
