Tom Brady ‘not opposed’ to NFL comeback: ‘I’m always going to be in good shape’

When Tom Brady retired for the second time, he said he planned to hang up his cleats “for good.”

His first retirement lasted just 40 days before he returned after hitting 180, but the 2023 season will be the first without Brady since 1999.

But as the second year post-Brady approaches, the seven-time Super Bowl champion is once again becoming highly skeptical.

On the “DeepCuts” podcast, Brady was asked if he would “answer the call” if he needed to fill an injury hole.

“I’m not against it.” Brady said with a smile..

“I don’t know…I’m always in good shape and can always throw the ball. So I don’t know if they’re going to be willing to just be a little bit involved, like MJ coming back. ‘Let me, but I’m not against it. ”

Brady said he probably won’t be able to become a minority owner of the Las Vegas Raiders, even if he ends up doing so, as bids are still being considered.

This isn’t the first time Brady has hinted at a second retirement. Last August, Brady took a selfie with his shirt off, looking like he could still fit under center field, and said he was “thinking about showing up to training camp.”

But a few months ago, he said, “I’m sure I won’t be playing anymore.”

“I’ve been trying to make that clear, but I hate to keep saying it publicly because I’ve already told people that so many times,” he said.

But for now, it’s not that clear.

Brady spent 20 of his 23 NFL seasons with the New England Patriots. He spent his final three seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
