In fact, he never went away…
Tom Brady, the legendary quarterback, has announced he is back from retirement for another season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
“These past two months I’ve realized my place is still on the field and not in the stands. That time will come. But it’s not now. I love my teammates and I love my supportive family. They make it all possible. I’m coming back for my 23rd season in Tampa. Unfinished business. LFG,” said Brady.
Brady announced his retirement in January, 2021, following the Buc’s loss to the Rams in the NFC divisional playoffs.
Brady’s reason for retirement was to have more time with family, who have been fully supportive of his career decisions.
Bucs’ coach Bruce Arians “totally excited” following the 44-year-old’s announcement to come back for “unfinished business”.
This will be Brady’s 23rd NFL season, third with the Bucs, as he looks to add to his GOAT (Greatest Of All Time) legend.
In his 22 seasons, 20 of them with the Patriots, Brady won a record seven Super Bowl titles and five Super Bowl MVPs…
…and he piled up career records like most touchdown passes (624) and most passing yards (84,250)…
…and his 76.9 career winning percentage ranks first in the Super Bowl era among quarterbacks with at least 75 starts.
Featuring in 10 Super Bowls & 14 conference titles, he set records with 32 player-of-the-week & 11 player-of-the-month honors.
In 2021, at 43, Brady won the Super Bowl in his first season with the Bucs but was unable to repeat the feat in his second year…
…he is now giving himself another chance to land his eighth Vince Lombardi trophy and leave at the very top.
