Tom Brady, who has already made a comeback from retirement once, hinted on Sunday morning, perhaps playfully, about considering another return in 2023. However, his plans were seemingly thwarted when friends surprised him with a retirement party.
In his Instagram post, Brady mentioned the amusing twist to his retirement saga: “PS: The only downside to 2023 was when I was about to unretire in May and my friends threw a surprise retirement party. Kind of forced my hand ?.”
While the tone of Brady’s message suggests a degree of humor, considering his history of coming out of retirement before, it’s not entirely implausible to entertain the idea that he was contemplating another return.
The question arises: If Brady had indeed returned in 2023, which team would he have played for? The mystery lingers as Brady continues to playfully tease a potential return to the field. However, it’s worth noting that he has firmly committed to a new role in the broadcast booth for the upcoming season, extinguishing any hopes of a playing comeback.
