Tom Brady is someone who always seems to be the subject of rumors. Overall, it makes sense as to why this would be the case when you consider who he is. The seven-time Super Bowl champion is a legend, and it feels like he is never going to stop playing football. Although he retired for a second time this offseason, fans don’t believe him. This is fair considering he unretired the first time. While Brady has claimed that there is a finality to his decision, the rumor mill is still turning.
For instance, on The Rich Eisen Show, there was a rumor floating around that Brady wanted to come back. In fact, he would be looking to play for the Miami Dolphins, whom he had been connected to in the past. These rumors felt real due to the fact that it is hard to imagine Brady out of the league. Furthermore, Brady’s silence on the matter was truly deafening. However, Brady has since emerged from hibernation to give fans an update on what’s going on.
Tom Brady Speaks
Simply put, you should not expect Brady to be back in the league, anytime in the immediate future. In the tweet above, Brady wrote “Anyone who thinks I have time to come back to the NFL has never adopted a 2-month-old kitten for their daughter.” Brady adopted two siamese cats this offseason, and they are clearly taking up a lot of his time. Although, he is probably mostly joking here as we don’t think cats would be the determining factor in him coming back. Regardless, Brady seems to want to relax, and playing football again goes against that. Only time will tell whether or not he honors his initial decision.
Brady is 45 years old and is coming off of a season where he was not particularly good. Although he had some flashes of brilliance, retirement does seem like the best option for him at this point. Based on his recent comments, it seems like he is aware of that. Let us know what you think of Brady’s latest tweet, in the comments below.
