Gisele Bundchen appears to support her husband Tom Brady in his decision to come out of retirement. On Sunday, seven-time Super Bowl champion Brady announced he was coming out of retirement for a 23rd season. Brady plans to rejoin the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, with which he signed in 2020.
"These past two months I have realized my place is still on the field and not in the stands. That time will come. But it’s not now," Brady wrote on Instagram. "I love my teammates, and I love my supportive family.
Without them, none of this is possible. "I’m coming back for my 23rd season in Tampa. We have unfinished business."
Brady has the support of his wife
Bundchen commented on Brady's Instagram post, throwing her support.
“Here we go again! Let’s go lovvvey! Let’s go Bucs!,” Bundchen commented on the post. Meanwhile, the Buccaneers are "thrilled" that Brady has changed his mind and decided to play next year.
“We are thrilled that Tom has decided to come back this season,” Tampa Bay general manager Jason Licht said in a statement. “We said we would leave all options open for him should he reconsider his retirement and today’s announcement is something we have been preparing for in recent days.
Bruce and I have had plenty of conversations with Tom recently that led us to believe there was a realistic chance he would want to come back. Tom is the greatest quarterback of all time who is still playing at an elite level.
With this decision now made, we will continue to move forward with our offseason plans to reload this roster for another championship run”. After announcing his retirement, Brady insisted he was looking forward to spending time with his family and kids.
Multiple reports suggested Brady was retired for good. "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," Brady said in February.
