Tom Brady refuses to rule out retiring, saying he will “go home and sleep tight” when asked by reporters if he played his last game after Bucs’ disastrous playoff loss
Tom Brady had a high number of passing attempts in his career but couldn’t find much success when his Buccaneers failed in Monday night’s NFC wildcard round against the Dallas Cowboys – leaving his future up in the air.
After the 31-14 loss to the Cowboys, Brady seemed reluctant to reveal what’s next at the post-game press conference.
“I’m going home and I’ll sleep well,” Brady replied when asked about his future.
‘Or as best I can tonight. … We’ve been very focused on this game, so it’s really just going to be one day at a time.
Tom Brady has not committed to retiring after his 2022 season ended Monday night
Brady attempted 66 passes and completed 35 of them in a 31-14 loss to the Dallas Cowboys
Brady ended his press conference with some positive farewells for the Buccaneers team and the media.
“I love this organization. It’s a great place. Thank you to everyone who welcomed me. I’m just very grateful for the respect and I hope I returned it to you guys,” Brady said.
After failing in the NFC divisional round against eventual Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams last year, Brady announced that he was retiring from the sport.
He then made the shocking decision to come out of retirement in early March 2022 and return to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Brady had a chaotic season — both on and off the field — that culminated in his first losing campaign
Brady returned to the team but failed to repeat last season’s 13-4 mark that earned them runners-up in the 2021 NFL Playoffs.
This season, the Buccaneers hobbled behind a reckless offensive line with an 8-9 record to an NFC South title — the first nine-loss season of Brady’s career.
It’s been a season of many trials and tribulations for Brady — both on the field with shaky performances and off the field as he divorced ex-wife Giselle Bundchen.
The Buccaneers fell to Dallas Monday night, with Brady attempting 66 passes but completing just 35 of them for 351 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. He was also sacked twice for a total loss of 17 yards.
Several teams have said they would be interested in chasing Brady this offseason, with the Las Vegas Raiders being the latest team to throw their hats in the ring.
