Everyone in the sports world was heart broken when Tom Brady announced that he would retire from the NFL.
Then he came back and played an entire NFL Season last year for the Bucs.
Now, after announcing he was retiring again from the NFL, he swears that this time it is for good. Why wouldn’t he be good to walk away from the NFL after a 23-year career highlighted by seven Super Bowl Rings and three League MVP awards and a lucrative announcing gig waiting for him?
Everyone gave Brady his flowers when he re-retired this past February, but I don’t think anyone would be surprised if he came back once again, and that list of doubters includes NFL Network Anchor Rich Eisen.
On a recent episode of The Rich Eisen Show, rumors that had been circulating from this year’s NFL Draft Combine were discussed.
The NFL Combine is a chance for young and upcoming football players to show off their skills and athleticism in hopes of being drafted by NFL teams. With all of the young talent present at the combine, it only makes sense that the number one rumor on his list of Top 5 rumors at the event was that the 45 year old “G.O.A.T.” may not be hanging it up after all.
“Tom Brady may not be done after all… couple people were like, ‘just hang on, just you wait.’ And I’m like, ‘he’s Instagraming videos of his cat?’
But it doesn’t look like he’s getting big and fat, does it?”
Imagine if you were working your ass off at the combine, trying to win over a starting QB job for an NFL team and a scout there said to you “Kid, you are great, but I think we are going to go with a 45 year old man that could be your Dad instead.”
Eisen stated in the show that a very possible landing spot for Brady, if he were to come back to play, would be the Miami Dolphins.
The health and concussion issues of the Dolphins’ star quarterback Tua Tagovailoa could open the door for Brady to come back into the NFL.
“If the Dolphins, somehow or some way get a doctor’s report or piece of information from a medical evaluation of Tua that he may not be ready to go, and suddenly there’s Tom Brady sitting in Florida, where his family is located and where he can easily locate himself…”
Brady’s level of play dropped a bit in the past season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but he still managed to be one of the league’s best quarterbacks.
Brady said he was done this time for good, but if the perfect scenario presented itself (such as the Miami Dolphins where his ex-wife and kids live), it may be hard for the long time competitor to pass it up.
I mean, we know he loves a good Super Bowl parade… right?
