Just last month Tom Brady officially retired from the NFL. At the time he said that he was looking forward to spending more time with family, and focusing on other endeavors in his life outside the football field. However, that was all short lived when Tom Brady cancelled his retirement today by announcing he will return to the Buccaneers in 2022. The reasons behind his decision are very deep.
Tom Brady Explains Why He Unretired and Will Play Another Season for the Buccaneers in 2022
In an emotional statement on Twitter, Tom Brady explained why he cancelled his retirement abruptly. Apparently over the past few months he gained clarity on where he needs to be, and that is still on an NFL football field. His love for the game is still too strong for him to walk away.
He explained that his family and teammates helped him change his mind about retirement.
In his full statement on cancelling his retirement Tom Brady said,
“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 now. 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. Unfinished business LFG.”
Last season Buccaneers had a relatively successful run despite the myriad of controversial situations they endured with the dynamic of the beef between Antonio Brown and Bruce Arians. With Tom Brady coming out of retirement and Antonio Brown off the roster — this coming season could end very differently. It’s safe to say Buccaneers are now Super Bowl favorites again.
