Brady, 44, who announced his retirement on Feb. 1, says he’s ‘coming back’ for his 23rd season
Tom Brady, the seven-time Super Bowl champion, announced his return to the NFL on Sunday after a brief retirement.
“Over the past two months I have realized that my place is always on the pitch and not in the stands. That time will come. But it’s not now. I love my teammates and I love my family who support me . They make it all possible. I’m coming back for my 23rd season in Tampa. LFG unfinished business,” Brady, 44, announced on Twitter.
Brady retired from American football on February 1.
His last club Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the NFL have both confirmed his return.
The Buccaneers said they were “ecstatic” about Brady’s return.
Brady spent 22 seasons, playing for the New England Patriots in 2000-2019 and then the Buccaneers.
He joined the Buccaneers in 2020 to win Super Bowl LV, the 55th playoff championship game.
Six of Brady’s Super Bowl championships were with the Patriots, while his final victory came with the Buccaneers last year.
During his career, the American quarterback was named five times Super Bowl MVP (most valuable player) and three times NFL MVP.
The 2022 NFL regular season will begin on September 8.
