Legendary quarterback Tom Brady has no plans to return to the NFL. During an episode of his SiriusXM podcast “Let’s Go! With Tom Brady, Larry Fitzgerald and Jim Gray,” Brady joked about what his family would be like if he decided to retire a second time. Very upset about him.
“My parents are going to call, my kids are going to call. They’re going to kill me. I won’t be here tonight,” Brady said. “Like I said, you only get one chance not to retire. I’m done with that.”
Brady and Gray interview YouTuber star Mr. Beast (real name Jimmy Donaldson) in the latest episode. Donaldson joked that the podcast’s ratings could skyrocket if the seven-time Super Bowl champion jokingly announced he was retiring for a second time.
Brady quickly responded to the offer and said he had no plans to return.
Gray told Donaldson that Brady “already did this once,” referring to his comeback from retirement. Brady retired after the 2021 season, but announced less than two months later that he would return to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for a third season. He passed for 4,694 yards and 25 touchdowns in his final season, but failed to help the Buccaneers exit the playoffs in the first round.
Brady added, “Like I said, you only get one chance to not retire. I’m done with that.”
