Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady said he felt pressured to retire due to the free agency

TAMPA, Fla. — This is the first time that I have spoken publicly since 2005. ending his retirement after 40 days, Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady Wednesday, he stated that he was under pressure to end his retirement because of free agency. His main reasons for indecision stemmed primarily from his commitments towards his family.

“At this stage it's about 55% yes and only 45% no. It's not 100-0. It's not 100-0,” Brady stated in a roundtable on TNT that was broadcast after Capital One's. The Match golf outing With Aaron Rodgers, Patrick Mahomes Josh Allen. It's not that it's not 100% committed. But as soon as I commit to it, it's like “Ugh.” We'll get there. It's almost like running a marathon. It's impossible to decide, two weeks before the marathon starts, “Hey, I'm going running.” It was easy to move to free agency. I felt some pressure and spoke to my team and organization about it.

Brady was asked whether he was ready to retire.

Brady, who turns 45 in August, said, “Partly, I know, yes.” “And I think that when you're their age (Mahomes or Allen's), if you asked me, ‘Are your going to play football next season?' I would answer that there is a 100% chance of me playing. And that's because I have other responsibilities as I age.

“So I have many people who take care of me, and things that are off the field that are important to me, like my family, my children, and my wife. She's done an incredible job. It's a huge commitment from her. As you age, it becomes harder. They don't know what lies ahead, I think. Aaron (Rodgers), knows these things because as our lives grow, so do our responsibilities.

Brady is under contract He will be with the Buccaneers until the 2022 season. After that, he will become an unrestricted-free agent. He hasn't spoken about his future beyond 2022.
