Tom Brady un-retires, will return to NFL’s Bucaneers

MIAMI (AFP) – Seven-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady said yesterday he has changed his mind about retirement and will return to the National Football League (NFL) next season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Brady won six titles in 20 seasons with the New England Patriots then moved the Bucs in 2020 and led them to a championship.

But Tampa Bay lost to the eventual champion Los Angeles Rams in January in the playoffs and Brady announced his retirement last month.

Now superstar quarterback Brady, who turns 45 in August, said he wants at least one more chance at a championship. “These past two months I have realised my place is still on the field and not in the stands,” Brady said in a social media posting. “That time will come. But it’s not now.

“I love my teammates and I love my supportive family. Without them, none of this is possible. I’m coming back for my 23rd season in Tampa.

“We have unfinished business.”

Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians was thrilled to welcome back Brady.

“Tom Brady loves to play football as much as anyone I’ve ever been around,” Arians said.
