After only 40 days of retirement, Tom Brady announces return to NFL

After the bombshell of Tom Brady’s retirement announcement rocked the NFL last month, the star quarterback has reversed course and decided to return to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers next season. 

In a surprise Sunday Tweet, Brady shocked fans by telling them he would, after all, be coming back for his 23rd season in the NFL.

“These past two months I’ve realized my place is still on the field and not in the stands. That time will come. But it’s not no,” Brady wrote. “I love my teammates, and I love my supportive family. They make it all possible. I’m coming back for my 23rd season in Tampa.”

Team General Manager Jason Licht said the team was aware of Brady’s intent to return. “Tom is the greatest quarterback of all time who is still playing at an elite level. With this decision now made, we will continue to move forward with our offseason plans to reload this roster for another championship run,” Licht wrote in a statement.

Head Coach Bruce Arians says the team is happy to have Brady back. “Tom Brady loves to play football as much as anyone I have ever been around,” Arians said. “As Tom said, his place right now is on the football field.”
