Tom Brady Weighs in on Retirement Talk Following Playoff Ousting

Can Tom Brady keep defying the odds?

If Brady plays the 2022 season, he will be taking snaps as a 45 year old quarterback.

Retirement rumors have been buzzing since the start of the playoffs. According to multiple reports, Brady has been “noncommittal” about the possibility of returning to Tampa Bay for the 2022 season. With the close 30-27 loss to the Rams, the noise around his future started to get louder.

Brady addressed it during the postgame press conference.

“I haven’t put a lot of thought into it. I’ll just take it day by day. And we’ll see,” he said, via ESPN.

Bruce Arians said it was up to Brady whether he wanted to play in 2022.

Brady’s company, TB12 Sports, suggested the quarterback may keep playing.

“You win or you learn,” the company tweeted. “There are no failures, only lessons. When you fall you need to pick yourself up with greater enthusiasm than you went down. Now we look back on an incredible season, learn our lessons, and get up… because even greater things are coming. #KeepGoing.”

Here’s what he’s said in the recent past about when he’s going to call it a career.

“I’ll know when the time’s right. If I can’t … if I’m not a championship-level quarterback, then I’m not gonna play. If I’m a liability to the team, I mean, no way. But if I think I can win a championship, then I’ll play,” he told Peter King back in August.

Expect the Tom Brady retirement talk to continue into  the offseason.
