The GOAT seemed to think 40 days of retirement was enough, as he took to Twitter today to announce his return for his third season as a Tampa Bay Buccaneer and (23rd in total for his career). Tom Brady’s reasoning: “unfinished business.”
If you want to look at that video with Ronaldo he posted last night where the soccer mega star asked if TB12 truly was done with the game, and Brady seemed to give a shrug as evidence of Brady’s indecision about retirement, go ahead.
It doesn’t matter. Brady’s back.
This opens up so many doors, it’s ridiculous. This might prompt the Bucs to continue the practice of voidable years, pushing their salary cap troubles even more into the future.
These past two months I’ve realized my place is still on the field and not in the stands. That time will come. But it’s not now. I love my teammates, and I love my supportive family. They make it all possible. I’m coming back for my 23rd season in Tampa. Unfinished business LFG pic.twitter.com/U0yhRKVKVm— Tom Brady (@TomBrady) March 13, 2022
This might cause veterans that were assumed to be gone like Gronk, center Ryan Jensen, edge rusher Jason Pierre-Paul, corner Carlton Davis III and running backs Leonard Fournette and Gio Bernard to agree to one more year to team up with the GOAT for one last run.
Brady’s return might even open portals Bucs fans never thought were possible. Would other talented veterans looking for a ring agree to sign with the Bucs to fill out their roster?
Man. What a development. From the thought of having to watch Kyle Trask struggle through a season with an average roster around him to Super Bowl contenders again, all within 40 days, all because one man decided he wasn’t done shitting on the NFL.
