Thomas Edward Patrick Brady Jr. known as Tom Brady is an American football quarterback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers of the National Football League (NFL) who has decided to take his time making decisions on his future to look at options with a clear mind.
However, other players have a hunch that he is probably leaving. They have stated their concern that Tom Brady is leaving the team with no intention of returning. One of the players said, “I’d be surprised if he is back.” While another player added, “He sounded like a person saying goodbye for good.”
Reportedly Brady has given a statement earlier to the media in his final press conference on Monday and conveyed his gratefulness for the organization. He said, “I just want to say thank you, guys, for everything this year.” Although he didn’t mention anything specifically, those who listened to the conference got the hint.
Brady wanted to spend his time more with his family and children while he is away from games during the decision-making time. He always wanted to retire in his 40s. So, the hunch can be a strong assumption.
This has happened following a disappointing season for Tampa Bay which ended with a playoff loss. After that Brady left the locker room with the intent of making no decisions. Later he said, “I think the most important thing is the day after the season…and I made this mistake…is not to decide the future.”
Brady struggled greatly in his final game after going 35 of a season-high 66 passes for 351 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception. However, if Brady leaves then the Buccaneers‘ situation will definitely change. They will be needing a quarterback along with a new OC with a $35.1 million cap hit during the end of his contract.
