Tom Brady Says It’s “Pretty Unlikely” He’ll Retire


Following Saturday’s playoff loss to the Titans, Patriots QB Tom Brady told reporters that it’s “pretty unlikely” he’ll retire this offseason, per Jeff Howe.

As for whether he’ll be back with the Patriots, Brady said he doesn’t know what the future holds. 

“Who knows what the future holds? …I love the Patriots. I’m very blessed, but I don’t know what the future holds, and I’m not going to try and predict it,” Brady said, per Jeff Darlington

Brady added that he’s taking things day to day from here. 

I love playing football. I love playing for this team. I don’t know what it looks like moving forward. So we’ll just take it day by day,” Brady said, per Darlington.

Brady’s future in New England has been a popular topic all season, but speculation will only grow from here, given that he’ll be an unrestricted free agent and the Patriots cannot franchise or transition tag him this offseason. 

Brady, 42, is a former sixth-round pick of the Patriots back in 2000. He was in the final year of his two-year, $41 million contract when he agreed to a two-year extension a few weeks ago. 

Brady made $23 million for the 2019 season and is in line to be an unrestricted free agent this offseason. 

In 2019, Brady appeared in all 16 games for the Patriots and threw for 4,057 yards, 24 touchdowns and eight interceptions. He also rushed for 34 yards and three touchdowns.
