Tom Brady remains focused on family over football, ‘It’s time to be a dad’

Eleven days before the Super Bowl kicked off, Tom Brady retired from the game of football. But we’ve seen him do this before and retire, only to return 40 days later. We’ve reached 45 days and counting since Brady hung up his cleats for the second time, and this one feels more permanent than the last.

Yet, it seems we can’t go a week without another Tom Brady rumor from taking root. Brady is set to join Fox Sports as a broadcaster in 2024, the first year of a 10-year, $375 million contract, but his calendar for 2023 remains open.

Does that mean Brady could join a QB-needy team in the pursuit of his eighth Super Bowl ring once the NFL season gets underway? Not according to Brady. Instead, TB12 has bigger goals this year, which he briefly discussed on Friday.

It doesn’t get much better than that. While the 45-year-old may feel like he still has plenty of throws left in the tank, you won’t find anyone arguing that he hasn’t done enough or accomplished everything possible in his legendary career.

As much as the world doesn’t want to believe Brady has moved on, it appears after 335 games between the New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Brady is gone for good.

While we may never see him make another NFL pass, since he has a 10-year contract with Fox Sports, this won’t be the last we hear of Brady. The next question becomes how good the first-ballot Hall of Famer can be in his next career as an NFL broadcaster instead of a Super Bowl winner.
