Ever since the NFL GOAT hung his cleats for the second time, fans have been waiting, with their fingers crossed, for his return like the first time. The rumors of Tom Brady making an eventual return have gotten quite out of hand. The 45-year-old quarterback played in the league for 23 years, winning seven Super Bowls during that span and setting countless records along the way with the New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. And now, it seems he has made the final call.

While most NFL fans still hope to see Brady put on his boots for one last time, the legendary QB himself refuses to walk down that path again. During his Autograph “unofficial retirement” party last night in Tampa, Brady alluded to his plans for the future, and no they did not include him lacing up his boots.

Channeling the same charismatic tone, Brady went on to say, “There is nothing I love more than football, but I have young children and they watched enough of their dad’s games and it’s time for me to watch their games.

Brady has three young children, Jack (15 years old), Ben (13 years old), and Vivian (10 years old). The trio can be seen occasionally at their dad’s NFL games, but now that Brady is retired, all eyes will be on Jack.

The 15-year-old has always been in love with the game and is an integral part of his current high school roster. Many have already started noticing glimpses of Brady in the young phenom.

Brady himself seems committed to helping Jack achieve his dreams, as he once said, “I love watching him play quarterback because I think there are very few things in life that I could probably help him with, I don’t have a lot of specialties in life other than probably throwing the football. He’s way smarter. He’s got a great work ethic. He’s just a great kid. But I can definitely help him at quarterback..

The rumor train

Earlier, Rich Eisen gave way to a ton of rumors surrounding Brady. Apparently, Eisen heard some juicy rumors, and one of them happened to be revolving around Brady’s return.

Eisen said, “This one just blew my mind: Tom Brady might not be done after all, The one place that folks are saying to keep an eye out for is Miami, f the Dolphins, somehow or some way get a doctor’s report, a piece of information from a medical evaluation of Tua [Tagovailoa] that he may not be ready to go, and suddenly there’s Tom Brady sitting in Florida

Brady however was quick to counter Eisen’s claim, as he tweeted, “Anyone who thinks I have time to come back to the NFL has never adopted a 2-month-old kitten for their daughter.

Brady’s confirmation has never been enough to get rid of the rumors, and the NFL GOAT is well aware of that. Despite Brady making his intentions clear, it is safe to assume that fans will be still fixated on the man, waiting eagerly for his reappearance on the field.
