Tom Brady is one of the most iconic figures in NFL history. He's been in the league for 20 years, winning 6 Super Bowls and 4 MVP awards, basically making him the GOAT of football. After much speculation, Brady finally addressed the situation on what his plans for next season are looking like - and it sure made waves in the NFL world.
On February 1st, 2022, Tom Brady announced that he would be retiring from football after dedicating two decades of his life to the NFL, shocking both fans and players alike. However, just 40 days later, on March 14th, the quarterback announced that he would be re-signing with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers -the team he has been playing for since 2020. This sudden turn of events left many people confused and wondering why he had changed his mind so quickly, but everyone was still pumped to see him on the field.
In a recent conversation on his Let's Go! podcast, co-host Jim Gray asked the hard-hitting question on whether or not he's returning to the field for a 24th season in 2023. Taken back by the question, Brady told Gray, "If I knew what I was going to f****** do, I would've' already f****** done it." He continued, "I'm' taking it a day at a time. I appreciate you asking. Thank you." Sounds like he's at a crossroads! "Brady says he has been spending time with his kids and doing all the things he 'put in the drawer' during the season. He said there's no 'soft landing' for the end of an NFL season," reporter Rick Stroud added.
Despite having his lowest QBR (quarterback rating) since 2006 at 52.6 last season, teams will still go the extra mile to sign Brady when he becomes a free agent again at the beginning of next year's season. The former Patriots star's recent decision has undoubtedly caused a stir throughout the NFL world as fans eagerly await what this could mean for their beloved teams come next season. So let's see what the greatest quarterback of all time decides...
