31 NFL teams on March 13 saw the news that they must have been dreading; Tom Brady has announced that he will return for a 23rd season as a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Brady, 44, had retired earlier in the offseason as a seven-time Super Bowl champion, three-time NFL MVP, NFL record holder in wins, completions, passing yards, and touchdowns – the unquestionable Greatest of All Time at the quarterback position.
Brady announced his return on social media, with the NFL media landscape set alight just 24 hours before free agency’s legal tampering period begins.
These past two months I’ve realized my place is still on the field and not in the stands. 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 pic.twitter.com/U0yhRKVKVm
