The cat is out of the bag.
Tom Brady spent the majority of his career as the cat’s pajamas of the NFL, but again decided to announce his retirement in February. It’s is second retirement of his NFL career, and this time it came with significantly less pomp and circumstance than his 2022 retirement.
Maybe Brady’s NFL career isn’t over, but paws-ed. That is according to NFL commentator and radio host Rich Eisen, who said buzz from around the NFL Combine indicated that Brady has another season in him, and this time may make his way to South Beach:

“Tom Brady may not be done after all,” Eisen said. “A couple of people are like, ‘Just hang on, you wait.’ … Let it play out, see who wants what. The one place that folks are saying keep an eye out for is Miami.

Brady caught wind of said rumors, and attempted to calm them down on

While Brady seems adamant in his retirement, there is a little smoke that may attach Brady to a return to the field. He has delayed his Fox broadcast debut until 2024, taking this upcoming season off. He’s been attached to the Dolphins in the past, and also was seen taking a tour of a Florida private school earlier in 2023.
Brady said in his most recent retirement address that he was retired “for good” this time, but words are just words. We’ll see if he’s kitten around about retirement soon enough.
