SJ - February 8, 2022

Tom Brady was asked about the possibility of coming out of retirement by Jim Gray on his SiriusXM podcast.  His answer surprisingly left the door open for him to make a return.

He told Gray that he feels very good about his decision to retire, but that he would "never say never" on playing again.

From Pro Football Talk:

“You know, I’m just gonna take things as they come,” Brady said. “I think that’s the best way to put it and I don’t think anything, you know, you never say never. At the same time I know that I’m very, I feel very good about my decision. I don’t know how I’ll feel six months from now, [inaudible] change, it most likely won’t. But I try to make the best possible decision I can in the moment, which I did this last week. And, again, I think it’s not looking to reverse course, I’m definitely not looking to do that. But in the same time I think you have to be realistic that you never know what challenges there are gonna be in life. Again, I loved playing. I’m looking forward to doing things other than playing.”

That doesn't sound like the answer of a guy who feels very good about his decision.  If he did you would expect a different answer.  He's not a guy walking away from the game in his 30s.
