Tom Brady’s athletic retirement was short-lived. After retiring from the NFL on February 1 to “focus his time and energy on other things,” the now-star quarterback is back with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for his 23rd season.
“In the past two months, I’ve noticed that my place is still on the field and not in the stands,” the most successful professional American football ever announced Sunday night on social media. That time will come – but not now. “I love my teammates and I love my supportive family. They make everything possible.”
“I still have work to do,” he wrote. And she ended enthusiastically with the acronym “LFG,” short: “Let’s fucking go!”
Swiss NFL fans should be happy about that. You can unexpectedly see Brady live back in the fall in neighboring Germany: The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have already been confirmed as one of the two teams that will play their first NFL game in Germany in Munich.
“Success is what I love about our game”
Brady is considered an NFL legend. He won the Super Bowl, the NFL Final, seven times. He was named “Player of the Year” by the American sports press five times, or MVP for short.
The list of his records is long. Among other things, he threw the most touchdowns (624 in the regular season, 86 in the playoffs) and celebrated the most wins (243 in the regular season, 35 in the playoffs). He also played and won more regular season games than any other midfielder in his 22-year career.
“I’ve always thought football is about ‘everything’ – if you don’t have a 100 per cent commitment to competition, you won’t succeed and success is what I love about our game.” Resigned in February.
Seven-time Super Bowl champion – but failed recently
With the Bucs in Tampa (Florida), which he is now back in, he last won the Super Bowl two years ago. The success that Brady loves didn’t last: Last season, he failed to make the playoffs.
It is very likely that this is the reason for his ambition again. Or simply money – for his transfer from the New England Patriots to the Buck team in 2020, he earned $50 million for two years.
Anyway, it shouldn’t just be boredom. Brady, who is married to model Gisele Bundchen (41), has three children and his own fitness company.
In any case, a new title is already confirmed for him with the surprise announcement: perhaps the title for the shortest NFL retirement ever. (relatives)
