Josh Allen didn’t believe Tom Brady when the seven-time Super Bowl winner announced his retirement in February 2022. But after watching the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback’s press conference following Monday’s season-ending loss, the Buffalo Bills star thinks it could be for Brady.

“The way he spoke in his press conference last night struck me as a little too sentimental about holding on to the belief that he will continue playing,” Allen Kyle Brandt said on his ESPN podcast.

“But we will see. It’s up to him and the people in his life around him and how he takes that decision into his own hands, but I know teams will call.

But Brady also reached out directly to members of the media — something Allen and others took to be a “goodbye.”

“I just want to say thank you for everything guys,” Brady said Monday in Tampa. “I really appreciate all your efforts. I know it’s hard for you too. It’s hard for us players to get through that. You guys have a tough job. I appreciate everything you are doing to cover for us.’

Brady also addressed the Buccaneers franchise and thanked the team for their past three seasons in Tampa: “I love this organization. It’s a great place. Thank you to everyone who welcomed me. All regulars [in the media], I’m just very grateful for the respect. And I hope I gave you the same back.”

A year ago, Brady appeared determined to retire from the NFL following the Bucs’ 13-4 season and playoff loss to the Los Angeles Rams.

“Hard to write this but here it is,” Brady wrote on Instagram. “I will no longer make this competitive commitment. I’ve loved my NFL career and now it’s time to focus my time and energy on other things that need my attention.

Forty days later, Brady was back with the Bucs, not that Allen was surprised.

“When it happened last year and he retired, I said to people, ‘I’m going to believe it if he doesn’t play the first game,'” Allen told Brandt.

Brady’s comeback was unsuccessful. The soon-to-be free agent suffered from his first losing season of his 23-year career, but that hardly precludes another return with or without the Bucs.

Yes, he’ll be 46 next season, but there are more than enough teams in the NFL who see themselves as contenders with Brady in the middle.

Whether he agrees with that assessment or begins his forthcoming broadcasting career remains to be seen.

“It’s always tough,” Brady said Monday of his disappointment. “But we didn’t deserve it. [The Cowboys] did.’
