Tom Brady remains enigmatic about the NFL’s future on the golf course


Tom Brady has retired. Law?

…law?

The future Hall of Famer was at the Seminole Pro-Member Golf Tournament this week, shortly after announcing his retirement from the NFL. But when asked Monday by SiriusXM if his radio gig — the “Let’s Go!” The SiriusXM show was his only job, the 44-year-old remained wary.

“To be determined,” Brady said. “A lot is happening. Today is golf.

It could mean anything. Maybe he’s in talks for a broadcast gig. Possibly an important position in football that doesn’t involve playing – reports have recently surfaced that the Miami Dolphins have been eyeing him for an ownership position.

He also stars in a buddy comedy and is developing his own clothing line.

But that only adds to the strange intrigue surrounding the legitimacy of his retirement. Although he said he was happy with his retirement on his show “Let’s Go” after the news broke, he said “nothing is promised” when it comes to his future. NFL insider Mike Giardi also said the mood around the league was that Brady was “almost forced” into retirement and he wasn’t quite ready.

Brady’s wife, Gisele Bündchen, has publicly stated on several occasions that she wants him to retire. But is he really ready to go?

During the combine, Buccaneers general manager Jason Licht joined NFL Network’s “Good Morning Football” and discussed the quarterback void left by Brady’s retirement. He didn’t seem ready to fully count a comeback either.

“We’ll see what the future holds,” Licht said. “Let’s just say we’re going to leave the light on. We always leave the light on for a guy like Tom Brady.

Then, rumors swirled that a possible rift with the Bucs coaching staff led to Brady’s retirement, with one report that he disagreed with the offensive game planning. Bucs head coach Bruce Arians denied the report, calling it “bulls-t,” but that’s just more smoke to sift through.

Could Tampa Bay release him and could he end up playing for another team? Unlikely – but possible.

For now, Brady is retired – and playing golf. But is it really? It’s something to watch as the NFL’s offseason unfolds.
