Arguably the greatest quarterback of all-time isn’t done yet.
Tom Brady made the announcement on Sunday evening that he is returning to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 40 days after announcing his retirement from the National Football League.
The seven-time Super Bowl champion announced his decision on Twitter and Instagram, saying he has “unfinished business.”
“These past two months I’ve realized my place is still on the field and not in the stands,” Brady wrote. “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.”
It was going to be a different atmosphere in the NFL for sure without the veteran quarterback, who is turning 45 in August.
In a statement Sunday evening, Bucs general manager Jason Licht said the announcement was something the team had been preparing for in recent days.
“[Head coach Bruce Arians] and I have had plenty of conversations with Tom recently that led us to believe there was a realistic chance he would want to come back,” Licht said. “Tom is the greatest quarterback of all time who is still playing at an elite level. With this decision now made, we will continue to move forward with our offseason plans to reload this roster for another championship run.”
