Contrary to recent rumours, Tom Brady will no longer play in the NFL. The superstar quarterback explained this personally in a video interview Sports Illustrated,.
Rumors have surfaced in recent days that Tom Brady, who is in the process of acquiring shares in the Las Vegas Raiders, could also play for the team. The background was the revelation that quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo might not be able to play for Vegas after all due to an existing foot injury.
Brady himself now commented on the rumors and clarified: “I’m sure I won’t play anymore.”
Brady continued, “I’ve tried to be clear about that and I’ve said that to people before. I’m looking forward to my broadcasting job with FOX next year. I’m looking forward to the opportunity I have with the Raiders I’m going to have – the process is still ongoing and I’m looking forward to the other things in my professional and private life, just spending as much time as possible with my children and watching them grow, supporting them in things, with they work and it’s a very important job. And I take all of this very seriously.”
Brady had ended his career a second time after the end of his contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after the past season, but this time for good, as he had already emphasized at the time.
