Even though Tom Brady is 46 years old and nearly a year has passed since his last NFL game, there may still be some teams that would add Tom Brady to their roster if given the opportunity.
Once again, these teams shouldn’t hold their breath.
Prompted by his guest, YouTuber Jimmy “Mr. Beast” Donaldson, the New York Patriots legend appeared on the latest episode of “Heading In with Tom Brady, Larry Fitzgerald and Jim Gray Let’s go!” in the podcast, denying that he might not retire. .
The topic came up when Donaldson accurately joked that the best thing he could do was get Brady to say he was coming back. Brady responded bluntly:
“I’m not retiring.”
When Donaldson suggested they could still tease the episode by previewing the soundtrack minus the “no” — Donaldson is nothing if not focused on making the numbers bigger — Brady responded that even a tease would Provoking backlash among his own family:
“I can’t joke. My parents are going to call, my kids are going to call. They’re going to kill me. I wouldn’t be around tonight… Like I said, you’re only allowed once Not retiring. And I’m done.”
That lines up with everything we’ve heard from Brady as he hangs up his cleats for the second time after last season. In addition to a potentially angry family, Brady’s return would also face obstacles, most notably that would force him to pause or even end his efforts to purchase ownership of the Las Vegas Raiders.
Still, Brady was intrigued by the idea in the post, even as rumors persist about the impact on his personal life of not retiring for the first time. He still spends time with his children in his true retirement, although they are clearly more interested in his guests:
“At this point, I’m just looking forward to being in more of your videos because my kids don’t think I’m terrible,” Brady said. “At the end of the day, Jimmy is the one who gets their attention. So if he tells them to do something, he has a lot more influence than I do.”
If anything, it sounds like we’re more likely to see Brady in a MrBeast video than playing in the NFL again.
