Don Yee, Brady's agent, released a statement after some rumors took the internet, indicating an official announcement will be made by Brady in the near future.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ quarterback has a year left on his contract with the team, and has not been shy to share with the NFL world that his intention is to play until he is 45 years old.
More on Brady:
However, when the Bucs lost to the Los Angeles Rams in the divisional round last week, Brady had a different response about his retirement; he shared his gratitude with an emotional instagram post, and later said he was going to prioritize his family in deciding his future.
“It’s not always what I want,” he told Jim Gray on “Let’s Go!” podcast. "It's what we want as a family. And I'm gonna spend a lot of time with them and figure out in the future what's next," said Brady.
If he 44-year-old does walk away this season, he will be leaving with the most prolific career in NFL history: a seven-time Super Bowl champion, three-time NFL MVP, five-time Super Bowl MVP, two-time NFL Offensive Player of the Year, three-time first-team All-Pro honoree, three-time second-team All-Pro, 15-time Pro Bowler and 2009 Comeback Player of the Year winner. Additionally, Brady was named to the NFL's 2000s All-Decade Team, the 2010s All-Decade Team and the NFL's 100th Anniversary All-Time Team.
