Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady wouldn’t commit to playing in 2022 when asked if he was considering retirement. It’s possible Brady, 44, will call it a career this offseason, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
“I haven’t a put a lot of thought into it. So, we’ll just take it day by day and see where we’re at,” Brady told reporters after the game on Sunday, per NFL Network’s Mike Giardi.
Brady has said many times he’ll play until he’s 45 years old and then make a year-to-year decision. He turns 45 before the 2022 season. He also famously said, “When I suck, I’ll retire.”
Tom Brady asked about retirement: “I haven’t a put a lot of thought into it. So, we’ll just take it day by day and see where we’re at." Selfishly, I hope he continues. He's still very, very good.
