Heading into the 2022-23 NFL season, legendary quarterback Tom Brady was expected to be entering the final season of his football career, planning to retire after the season. But with some massive changes in his personal life and the fact that he is still able to dominate the league, it looks like he might not be ready to call it quits after all.

According to league insider Ian Rapoport of The NFL Network, “all options are on the table” for the future of Tom Brady.


According to Rapoport, Tom Brady could still retire following the season, but there’s a very real chance that he returns to the field either for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers or as a free agent this offseason.

“I talked to several sources close to him this week, the explanation was that all options are on the table for Brady. So what that means: retirement? Certainly that is a possibility still. Being back with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2023? Also possible – something I know they would want. And then there’s maybe the most interesting one – could Brady be a free agent this coming offseason again? It would be certainly the most high-profile free agent going this year. Obviously, a lot to watch going forward.”

It’s massive news for the NFL world, and people had plenty to say about it on Twitter.

Time will tell what Brady ultimately decides.
