During an episode of the Rich Eisen Show, the NFL insider decided to clear up all the rumors surrounding Brady’s retirement. Eisen talked about how he heard several people discussing at the NFL 2023 Combine about Brady unretiring and the Miami Dolphins having the potential to acquire the QB. This sparked a debate in the NFL about TB12’s retirement plans.

Eisen said, “Tom Brady’s going to be a free agent in 8 days. The Bucks have a $35 million cap charge coming up this year. It’s possible the Bucks can say, ‘Hey Tom, you sign another contract we can extend this’.” He further said, “He’s not thinking, the way we’re describing, of unretiring right now or he’s thinking that he’s playing this year, or he’s preparing to play this year. “
