Don’t call it a comeback, he’s has been here for years!
Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady has officially un-retired from American football. The 44-year-old initially retired last month in a lengthy Instagram post, mere days after football reporter Adam Shefter reported the exit from the game will take place.
Brady thanked his current team, as well as highlighted his home life as reasoning for his new chapter (or so the league thought.)
Taking to the public to discuss her sentiments, Brady’s wife Gisele, who initially pushed for the retirement, supported the star’s decision for a return, stating the former MVP is “the most dedicated, focused and mentally tough person” she has ever met.
The news came mere days following Aaron Rodgers’ multi-year extension, as well as the Broncos trade which landed Denver’s fellow SuperBowl winner, Russell Wilson.
With the many dominoes falling into place in wake of the NFL Draft, speculation is rampant on Brady’s status with the team.
He is currently under contract with Tampa Bay has been linked to teams such as the San Francisco 49ers as potential trade targets, as the relationship between Brady and his current organization is said to be tumultuous at best.
The 7-time Super Bowl winner is entering his 23rd season in the NFL. A far cry from his humble beginnings in the 2000 NFL Draft, where he was picked 199th overall.
