Tom Brady is reportedly likely to retire following the 2022 NFL season.

For real this time around.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported Brady will enter this year with the expectation he’s playing his final professional football games. While it’s “conceivable” that Brady ultimately changes his mind, it’s considered a lot more likely he walks away and begins his post-playing career being an announcer on Fox.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported Brady will enter this year with the expectation he’s playing his final professional football games. While it’s “conceivable” that Brady ultimately changes his mind, it’s considered a lot more likely he walks away and begins his post-playing career being an announcer on Fox.

The network signed Brady to a 10-year, $375 million contract in-may. It’s expected he’ll serve as both a lead color commentator and an ambassador, with an increase of formal details to be announced when Brady actually retires.

The near future Hall of Famer initially announced he was stepping from football in February, and then backtrack a bit more when compared to a month later. Behind the scenes, the Miami Dolphins were engaged in unprecedented tampering with Brady and former SAINTS head coach Sean Payton that could eventually cost them multiple future draft picks.

Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reported the Dolphins wanted Brady and Payton as a deal, initially luring the quarterback as a part-owner in “retirement” before Brady would unretire with plans to play in Miami. Brian Flores’ racial discrimination lawsuit reportedly quelled those plans, and Brady made a decision to go back to the Bucs.

Having said that, Brady’s third year in Tampa has recently looked nothing beats his first two. Head coach Bruce Arians and tight end Rob Gronkowski both retired, and Brady himself took time off in training camp to cope with an individual matter. Rapoport reported the majority of Brady’s off time was spent vacationing in the Bahamas along with his family to satisfy a promise he made during his first retirement.

It appears Brady’s return came largely being an try to fulfill a promise to himself, as he’d publicly said many times he planned to play until he was 45. As he prepares to perform that goal Sunday, it seems we’re gearing up for a genuine 17-game sendoff for the best ever.
