Beijing (SID) – Football superstar Tom Brady is leaving his future in the NFL open, at least not a decision has been made to resign. In the podcast “Let’s Go!” Brady said, “Sometimes it takes a little time to really figure out how you’re feeling and what you want to do.” The 44-year-old assured that he would make the decision “at the right time”, “in one direction or the other”.
On Saturday, ESPN announced the retirement of the seven-time Super Bowl winner, six days after his playoff with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The NFL and Brady’s company TB12 Sports congratulated him on Twitter on his successful career, but his agent Don Yee and father Tom Sr. explained that the quarterback has not yet made his final decision.
The speculation screwed up a quiet family weekend, Brady said. “My phone kept ringing, but that’s just part of my situation,” said the father of three. He looks “from day to day” and tries to “make the right decision for me and my family”.
Brady did not name a time for this in his first public statement after the excitement of the weekend, even when asked. ESPN reported, citing anonymous sources, that he would announce his retirement after the Super Bowl (February 13) at the latest.
Brady has been in the NFL for 22 years, winning six titles with the New England Patriots and triumphing with the Buccaneers after moving to Florida last year. He is a sports icon in the USA, there are hardly any pass, win or touchdown records that he does not hold. That season, Brady lost to the Los Angeles Rams with the Bucs in the playoffs.
