Buccaneers’ Brady: “I Know I Don’t Have a Lot Left.”


Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady’s decision to return to the Bucs after reversing his retirement was one of several major quarterback developments in March.

Brady announced his retirement February 1st, only to announce his return 40 days later. Brady recently spoke with Tom VanHaaren of ESPN.com who asked Brady about his decision to return.

“At the end of the day, I just love the competition on the field. And last year was a very bitter ending to a season and we’ve got to make a lot of corrections to try to improve and put ourselves in a better position to succeed moving forward.”

He went on to say he had no doubts that he can still handle the physical requirements to play at this level.

“I knew my body, physically, could still do what it could do and obviously I have a love for the game, I think I’ll always have a love for the game,” Brady stated. “I do think physically I’ll be able to do it. I just felt like there was still a place for me on the field.”

Brady went on about the ever ticking clock towards retirement.

“I know I don’t have a lot left, I really do. I know I’m at the end of my career,” Brady stated. “I wish you could go forever, but it’s just not and football comes at too high of a cost now. My kids are getting older and it’s just getting harder and harder to miss these things. But, I wanted to give myself and my teammates and our organization another incredible opportunity to accomplish something that we’d all be very proud of.”

Brady is on record saying he doesn’t want a farewell tour. There has been plenty of speculation about what the GOAT will do after this season. If you listen to Brady’s words about his plans after football, you, like many would assume this is his last season.
