About six weeks ago, Tom Brady announced his retirement and was ready to move on from playing football. Many felt that Brady wasn’t done and at some point would come back to play, possibly with the 49ers. They weren’t expecting Brady would come back for the 2022 season but that’s exactly what he’s doing as he announced he’s returning to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
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 pic.twitter.com/U0yhRKVKVm

This came on the heels of Brady going to a Manchester United-Tottenham Hotspur match on Saturday. In an Instagram video, Brady met with Cristiano Ronaldo and his response to Ronaldo’s question about whether or not he was actually done playing fueled speculation.
Some will be happy he’s back, and some won’t, but this has taken social media by storm.
