Tom Brady Might Not Be Retiring From Football?! Shocking Details…Below!
Several hours ago, a report was published claiming that Tom Brady is retiring from the NFL after 22 years in the league. Now, it should be noted, the outlets and sportswriters who posted the story and tweeted about it are the best in the business. But, it appears they didn’t get any official statement from the man himself. Following the announcement, Brady’s ex-teammates like Julian Edelman, congratulated the QB saying, “Thanks for the memories, babe.”
BUT, Brady’s longtime agent — Don Yee — just issued a statement saying Tom has NOT officially retired from the NFL.
Here is the statement:
“I understand the advance speculation about Tom’s future. Without getting into the accuracy or inaccuracy of what’s being reported, Tom will be the only person to express his plans with complete accuracy. He knows the realities of the football business and planning calendar as well as anybody, so that should be soon.”
Tom Brady Says He Has NOT Made The Decision To Retire…Yet
Now, on one hand, the “complete accuracy” of the statement makes it appear that it might be inaccurate to say Tom is retiring from football from this season. But, the last part of that statement makes it appear that Brady might just be pissed that the news leaked out before he could officially make a statement and speak to his teammates and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers front office.
Now, here’s the CRAZY part! Tom Brady reportedly called up the Buccaneers General Manager — Jason Licht — after the story of his retirement broke, telling him he has NOT made the decision yet to retire from football. OMG!
