On Sunday, March 13, 2022, the greatest all-time football quarterback and player made the decision to come out of retirement.

Tom Brady was only in retirement for a little over a month (since February 1), but the love he has for the game compelled him to return to his previous team, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. At 44 years old, many fans expected him to retire soon, but regardless, his retirement in February shocked the world. What most people didn’t know is that he would make a great comeback. 

Tom Brady made a tweet announcing his rejoining of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. 

“These past two months I’ve realized my place is still on the field and not in the stands,” Brady tweeted. “That time will come. But it’s not now. I love my teammates, and I love my supportive family. They make it all possible. I’m coming back for my 23rd season in Tampa. Unfinished business LFG.”

What Brady did not say but undoubtedly meant, is that he missed the game. Badly. Many of the top-tier athletes have come out of retirement to play for a little while longer, including Michael Jordan, Lance Armstrong, Muhamed Ali, and Mario Lemieux. The list goes on and on. 

Being picked 199th overall in the 2000 NFL draft by the New England Patriots, nobody saw the skill he possessed. But the second he was put on the field, the teams instantly regretted not making any decisions earlier in the draft.

He has played 22 seasons going on 23, won 7 super bowls, and is the only player to have more super bowl wins than any other franchise. Brady has decided to come back and try and push his own personal record even more. Tom Brady, the ultimate football goat, is back and better than ever!
