Seven-time Super Bowl winner Tom Brady has sensationally backtracked on his decision to retire from NFL and has confirmed his intention to return in 2022.
Recall, Brady said last month that he was calling time on his legendary NFL career spanning 22 seasons, having amassed five Super Bowl MVP awards and three league MVP awards during a glittering career.
The veteran, who tops the all-time lists for passing yards and passing touchdowns, had spent most of his career at the New England Patriots before switching to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for the previous two seasons.
In a statement released on Twitter, Brady said: “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.”
