Tom Brady offers telling quote about his future

Tom Brady ready to pass

Tom Brady’s latest discussion of his playing future will not do much to quiet speculation that he is seriously considering retirement.

Brady talked about his next steps in his weekly “Let’s Go” podcast with Jim Gray, and admitted that the decision of whether to continue playing was not solely his. Brady said he planned to “spend a lot of time” with his family to make a decision, and that he valued the chance to see his children grow and mature.

Brady also added that if he felt he could not give the Tampa Bay Buccaneers his very best and a full commitment, he would prefer not to play.

The 44-year-old Brady has typically left little room for uncertainty about his future. The fact that he isn’t committed to playing in 2022 is noteworthy in itself. These remarks are even more intriguing, and he sounds like someone well aware of the toll his playing career can take on his family life.

On one hand, Brady does have one year remaining on his contract. It is also difficult to imagine him going out on the back of a loss like the one he and the Buccaneers suffered Sunday. That said, he does appear to be genuinely undecided, and if family is the deciding factor, there is a very real chance he might not come back.
