Football star Tom Brady endured a full 40 days as a sports retiree – and then announced his comeback in the NFL.
“For the last two months, I have realized that my place is still on the pitch and not in the stands‘Brady wrote on his social media channels.
It was only 40 days ago that the most successful professional in NFL history with seven Super Bowl wins announced his retirement after the season finale with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He has now announced that he will play another season for the club with which he won the Super Bowl two years ago, and two months ago he failed to try again with the final winners Los Angeles Rams. “We have pending caseswrote Brady. There is still work to be done.
Most recently, Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians had hinted at a possible comeback for the playmaker legend.
Brady may also be at the NFL guest appearance in Munich
Not only in the United States, but also in Germany, there should have been cheering among all the fans who heard the news before they went to bed: The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have already been confirmed as one of the two teams to host the first NFL games in Germany. Exactly when and against whom is still open, but Brady will probably be there now and massively increase the excitement around the game.
How competitive the team will be that Brady wants to win the Super Bowl with for the eighth time in his career – and nothing else will be the goal – is unclear. About his comrade Rob Gronkowski continuing his career and continuing to play in Tampa is as open as the question of how the “Bucs” want to tie the many other free transfer professionals to themselves for another season. According to ESPN, the squad is currently $ 11 million more expensive to maintain than the rules allow. Definitely as a teammate Brady but the passport recipients Mike Evans and Chris Godwin.
Sporty among the absolute best
From March 16, the teams can officially sign players, and the unexpected clarity in the most important position will definitely help the “Bucs”. “With that decision now made, we will move forward with our plans and reload the list for yet another path to the titleManager Jason Licht announced.There were initially no details about Brady’s contract situation and it was unclear how “Bucs” would handle the contract signed a year ago.
Brady proved last season that he is still one of the absolute best in the sport and that his age has made him slower but no less dangerous. No one in the league had as many passing yards (5,316), touchdown passes (43), successful passes (485) and passing attempts (719) as the California native. He also holds the NFL record in each of those categories. “He’s still playing at the championship level and has been just as productive as everyone else in the league last season,” said manager Bruce Arians, who spoke of being “excited” about his return.
Brady’s work ethic and discipline are legendary in the league and will no doubt surpass Cristiano Ronaldo, for whose record-breaking match he was in Manchester at the weekend and then snatched on the pitch with the Portuguese and dozens of other United professionals. Both the Premier League club and the Buccaneers are owned by the Glazer family, who may have found out about Brady’s plans on Saturday.
termination from termination
On February 1, when he declared his resignation, he was still arguing that he no longer wanted to show the necessary one hundred percent dedication. Instead of the many hours on the training ground, travel and fitness, he would spend his time with his wife Gisele Bundchen and their three children Jack, Benny and Vivi.
But his “supportive family” appeared in the resignation-to-resignation statement, as did the love for his teammates. Brady did not explicitly mention his love of victories, successes and records. He did not need that.
