Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady didn't want to speak much when asked if he could change his mind and play in 2022. Brady announced his decision to retire three weeks ago. Brady, 44, put an end to hsi great career after 22 seasons in the NFL.
Last week, Brady didn't shut the door on a potential comeback. Brady has his own podcast, Let's Go!, and on Monday aired the final episode of this season. Host Jim Gray asked Brady what he intends to do over the next couple weeks and months.
“Tom, there’s gonna be a lot of interest in what you do next,” host Jim Gray said, via quotes distributed by SiriusXM. “You stay close to the fans by doing this program. This is our last show. We won’t be talking to you on a weekly basis until next August.
People can follow you on your social media handles, but how are you gonna go about your life? And if somebody sees you out working out because you’re staying in shape that’s going to lead to all kinds of rumors.
So what will you be doing next with yourself? And will you stay in shape or are you gonna start running over to eat a few key lime pies?”
Brady at peace with his decision
Brady is married and a father to three kids.
Brady wants to be able to spend more time with his family and to be there for his kids. “You know I love those key lime pies, too,” Brady said. “That’s my dessert of choice. So there’ll definitely be a few more of those and I’m super content and happy with how I feel in my decision.
All you can do is take it day by day, nothing’s promised for us. I’m gonna do things I really enjoy and spend time with people that I really enjoy spending time with. So the future is bright. I look forward to the opportunities that are ahead and I look forward to speaking with everyone again next year.
So I’ve had a great time doing the show. We’ll keep it going and thank you to everyone for their amazing support, thanks for another great NFL football season. And I hope it just keeps getting better and better from here”. The Buccaneers failed to repeat as Super Bowl champions after losing to the Los Angeles Rams in the divisional round.
