Tom Brady: Nothing I love more than football but I have young children
by | VIEW 321
Tom Brady admits he still loves football but insists that he is now a full-time dad and that he won't be returning to tennis. Brady, 45, announced his second retirement from football on February 1st. In his second retirement announcement, Brady said he was "retired for good this time." But in recent days, the rumors suggest that Brady may not be done with pro football after all.
“There is nothing I love more than football, but I have young children and they watched enough of their dad’s games and it’s time for me to watch their games," Brady said, per Rick Stroud of The Tampa Bay Times.

Could Brady return to football again?
On February 1st, Brady insisted he was retired for good. But earlier this month, NFL insider Rich Eisen revealed that during the combine he heard the NFL executives talking about the possibility of Brady returning to football.
According to Eisen, the Miami Dolphins are the team to watch out for. “This one just blew my mind: Tom Brady might not be done after all. A couple people were just like, ‘Hang on, just you wait.’ And I was like, ‘He’s Instagramming out pictures of his cat.’ But it doesn’t look like he’s getting big and fat, does it? And just let it play out and see who wants what.
The one place that folks are saying to keep an eye out for is Miami. If the Dolphins, somehow or some way get a doctor’s report, a piece of information from a medical evaluation of Tua [Tagovailoa] that he may not be ready to go, and suddenly there’s Tom Brady sitting in Florida, where his family is located and where he can easily locate himself.
Keep an eye on that, I was told by a couple birdies at the combine. How’s that for a top 5 list?” Eisen said 10 days ago. In August, Brady will be turning 36. It remains to be seen if Brady again decides to un-retire.
