Is Tom Brady retiring or not? Tom Brady Sr. is shooting down rumors that his son is walking away from his 22 year career!
1:31 PM PT — Tom Brady’s dad, Tom Brady Sr. tells San Francisco news outlet Kron4 his son is “not retiring,” disputing the report from ESPN’s Schefter and Darlington.
According to the outlet, Brady Sr. says “an online publication started circulating an unsubstantiated rumor. However a number of NFL insiders are now reporting it.”
1:17 PM PT — This is bizarre. In the wake of reports Brady was retiring after 22 seasons, there are now some questioning the veracity of the news. According to Michael Silver, TB contacted Bucs GM Jason Licht, telling the front office exec he had NOT yet made a final decision.
Tom’s TB12sports Twitter account also deleted a tweet congratulating Brady for his career achievements.
Don Yee, Brady’s longtime agent, also issued a statement addressing the news.
“I understand the advance speculation about Tom’s future. Without getting into the accuracy or inaccuracy of what’s being reported, Tom will be the only person to express his plans with complete accuracy. He knows the realities of the football business and planning calendar as well as anybody, so that should be soon.”
We shall see…
