The world of American football in particular, and the world of sports in general, is pending the possible retirement of Tom Brady, quarterback of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and considered by many the best player in the history of this discipline.
Brady, 44 years old, jumped onto the grid for the last time in the duel of the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs that his team lost against the Los Angeles Rams 27-30, despite starring in a great comeback that ultimately was insufficient to win.
Since then there has been speculation about his possible abandonment of sports practice. In fact, several specialized media confirmed the news, although there is no official announcement about it.
ESPN journalist Adam Schefter was the one who reported on the news of Brady’s retirement after 22 years on the gridiron.
Schefter posted a response from Don Yee, Tom Brady’s agent, about his possible retirement from the NFL. “I understand the speculation going on about Tom’s future. Tom will be the only person who will express his plans with correct accuracy. He knows the business of football and the schedule, so the answer will come soon,” he said.
The 44-year-old quarterback had made several statements after the loss to the Rams about his possible retirement from the NFL.
“Honestly, I haven’t thought about whether I’ll continue, I’ll take it day by day and we’ll see what happens. The only thing she thought about was winning this match; I haven’t thought about anything else, five minutes ago we lost and I don’t know anything else, ”he said at a press conference.
Moreover, contrary to this information, members of his entourage such as his father or his agent have denied this extreme and have affirmed that the field marshal has not yet made a decision on this.
While Brady himself, winner of the championship ring last year with his current franchise after previously conquering six defending the interests of the New England Patriots, be quiet.
