Tom Brady changes mind on retirement
Just over a month after announcing his retirement, quarterback Tom Brady announced Sunday he will return to play for his 23rd season and do so "in Tampa."
These past two months I’ve realized my place is still on the field and not in the stands. That time will come.
But it’s not now. I love my teammates, and I love my supportive family. They make it all possible. I’m coming back for my 23rd season in Tampa. Unfinished business LFG
Days after Brady's retirement plans were reported, the longtime Patriots and Bucs QB announced his retirement via social media on Feb. 1.
Brady's retirement ended up lasting all of 40 days - though it was never official as it never came across the league transaction wire.
He remains under contract with Tampa Bay, "but it's a placeholder year worth about $10.4 million," NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported.
