SJ - January 31, 2022

Tom Brady addressed the retirement rumors that dominated the weekend on his "Let's Go!" podcast with Jim Gray on Monday night.  He did not confirm nor deny the rumors.

Brady would only say what his camp said all weekend, he hasn't yet decided whether or not he's going to call it a career.

From WEEI:

“It was a good week for me and I am still going through the process I said I was going through," he said. "Sometimes it takes some time to really evaluate how you feel and what you want to do. I think when the time is right I’ll be ready to make a decision one way or the other just like I said last week.”

Brady added: “We’re in such an era of information and people want to be in front of the news often, and I totally understand that. I understand that’s the environment we’re in. I think for me, literally it’s day-to-day with me. I am just trying to do the best I can every day and evaluate things as they come. I am trying to make a great decision for me and my family.”

So, does Brady have a timeline for the decision?

“Only I know when the time is right," he said. "… There’s a lot of interest in when I am going to stop playing. I understand that. It’s not that I don’t recognize that, when I know I’ll know and when don’t know I don’t know. I am not going to race to some conclusion about that.”

I'm rooting hard for Brady to return for one more season just to stick it to Adam Schefter and his smug reporting this weekend.  I hope Brady was going to retire then decided not to all because of that little weasel.
