There’s no denying Tom Brady has had an illustrious career in the NFL, and now it looks like we know what he’s decided to do next.
After being selected by the New England Patriots in the sixth round of the 2000 NFL Draft, Brady began his professional career as a backup quarterback. However, an injury to starter Drew Bledsoe during the 2001 season gave Brady the opportunity to take over as the team’s starter. He seized the opportunity, leading the Patriots to the Super Bowl that year, where they defeated the heavily favored St. Louis Rams.
Over the next two decades, Brady established himself as one of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history. He led the Patriots to nine Super Bowl appearances and won seven of them, the most by a player in NFL history. He also set numerous records, including most career touchdown passes, most career passing yards, and most career wins by a quarterback.
In addition to his on-field success, Brady is widely regarded as one of the most disciplined and hardworking players in the league. He is known for his rigorous training regimen and his ability to maintain a high level of performance despite his advanced age. He is also known for his leadership and his ability to inspire his teammates to play at a high level.
In 2020, after 20 years with the Patriots, Brady decided to leave the team and signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He led the team to the Super Bowl in his first season and led them to the playoffs again in 2021.
Throughout his career, Brady has earned numerous accolades, including numerous Pro Bowl selections, First-team All-Pro selections, and the NFL MVP award in 2007 and 2010. He also has won several Super Bowl MVP awards and has been named the NFL Comeback Player of the Year in 2009.
Brady is facing speculation about his future with the team following their loss to the Cowboys in the NFC wild-card round on Monday.
According to reports, some of Brady’s teammates believe that he may not return to the Buccaneers for the 2022-2023 season.
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.
