“That time will come. But it’s not now.” —Tom Brady wrote on Twitter.

Tom Brady announced on March 13 that he would return to the NFL for his 23rd season in the league. He will rejoin the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for the 2022 season.

Brady, who will be 45 years old by the start of the following season, is a 22-year veteran widely recognized as the greatest NFL quarterback of all time.

He announced he was officially retiring on Feb. 1, expressing a desire to spend more time with his wife, supermodel Gisele Bundchen, and their three children.

Brady’s retirement lasted merely 40 days.

According to the AP, numerous Hall of Fame players, including Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, and Bob Cousy in the NBA, Brett Favre and Reggie White in the NFL, Guy Lafleur and Mario Lemieux in the NHL, returned to play after retiring.

The New England Patriots drafted Brady in 2000, and he played his first 20 seasons with them. He teamed with coach Bill Belichick to win six Super Bowls with them.

Brady was one of the youngest quarterbacks in Super Bowl history, at only 24 years old, when his New England Patriots defeated the St. Louis Rams in 2002.

He left the Patriots to join the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in March 2020. He played the previous two seasons with the Buccaneers and won another Super Bowl in 2021. He won three MVP awards in 2007, 2010, and 2017.

Brady and Bündchen have been married since 2009 and have two children, Vivian, 9, and Benjamin, 12. With his ex-wife, Bridget Moynahan, he also has a 14-year-old son named Jack.
