Confusion about star quarterback Tom Brady: After the US sports broadcaster “ESPN” announced the end of his impressive football career and even the NFL had already acknowledged its figurehead on the homepage, different reports made the rounds.
According to the AP news agency, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback told general manager Jason Licht in a phone call that he hadn’t made a decision yet.
Brady’s agent Don Yee also did not want to confirm the end of his career in a message. “Without addressing the accuracy or inaccuracy of the reports, Tom will be the only one expressing his plans with absolute accuracy,” the statement said.
There has been speculation for some time about a possible resignation of the best football player in history.
The 44-year-old has played football in the NFL since 2000, initially for the New England Patriots until 2019, with whom he won the title six times.
Tom Brady’s future in the NFL still open?
The quarterback then moved to Tampa and got his seventh Super Bowl ring in 2021. He was honored five times as the most valuable player (MVP) in the Super Bowl.
ESPN was the first to report Brady’s end of career. He is taking the step with a view to his health and his family, it said.
The NFL’s homepage initially said, “TB12 leaves with a trophy box full of awards.” It was later said, “If this really is the end for Brady…”
The seven-time Super Bowl champion was eliminated with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers against the Los Angeles Rams last week and left his future open.
