Tom Brady did not rule out a return to the NFL for a 23rd season entirely on his podcast.
After retiring from the NFL after 22 unforgettable years, Tom Brady did not slam the door again when he returned for a 23rd season.
If anyone has earned the right to hold a team hostage that goes into his 45-year season, it has to be GOOD. Although Brady is already a Pro Football Hall of Famer with the first vote for the class in 2027, he can do some more soul searching and give it one last hurray before finally hanging the spikes up. Brady just led the NFL in passing, so he can clearly still sling it at this stage of his game.

Tom Brady returns rumors: 5 teams are desperate enough to sign the 45-year-old QB
New England Patriots
The quickest way to repair fences is through sheer and undeniable desperation
The only way this happens is if something bad happens to Mac Jones. No, we will not speculate on any of that nonsense, but who do you think the New England Patriots will call if their franchise quarterback cannot play in his second season in Alabama? Cam Newton? Oh hell no! This is the perfect way to tie a bow around the best career any quarterback has ever produced.
Brady going back to the Patriots would be like hiring a never-say-die cyborg whose only goal is to run the glove unscathed. It would be the best season in NFL history as Brady wins 17-0 in his final regular season and retires as a 45-year-old, eight-time Super Bowl champion. Maybe he and Bill Belichick will finally have the dinner we’re often heard about?
Unfortunately, cyborgs do not eat when they wake up, feel absolutely nothing and win football matches.
