He plans to enjoy a well deserved break and not rush back to work with Fox Sports.
The athlete wants to spend quality time with his family and kids – he has no plans to start dating.
Sources close to the athlete told the publisher that he plans to spend the next few month being a dad.
He is a very devoted father, according to the source, spending much of his time traveling between Miami and New York.
He has a 15-year-old son name Jack, whom he shared with Bridget Moynahan. Jack plays high school football and Brady catches a plan to watch him play every week.
He plans to stay in Miami to be near his other two children, Benjamin and Vivian – whom he shares with Gisele.
In terms of his love life, Brady hasn’t dated anyone since his divorce, according to the source.
Brady, who is 45 years old, has been with the Buccaneers for the past two seasons, leading the team to the Super Bowl and NFC Championship game. However, the team’s loss to the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship game has led to speculation about his future with the team.
According to the New York Post, “some of his teammates believe that he may not return to the Buccaneers for the 2022-2023 season.” The report cites an anonymous source who claims that “there is a sense among some of the players that this may be it for Tom.”
The report also notes that the Buccaneers have several key players set to become free agents, and the team will have to make some difficult decisions about how to allocate their resources. Additionally, the team’s head coach, Bruce Arians, has previously stated that he believes the team needs to get younger at the quarterback position.
Brady’s Buccaneer teammates have all but confirmed the superstar won’t be back next season.
“I’d be surprised if he’s back,” one Buccaneer told the NFL Network.
“He sounded like a person saying goodbye for good,” another said.
The end of an era.
