Quarterback Tom Brady has accomplished just about everything that an NFL player could ever hope for. With seven – count them – seven Super Bowl wins and numerous accolades, Brady has cemented his position as arguably not only the greatest quarterback of all time, but one of the greatest athletes ever to lace up a pair of cleats.
Of course, he made the decision to call it a career earlier this year after his Tampa Bay Buccaneers were defeated by the eventual Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams in their divisional postseason matchup. However, that retirement lasted only a few weeks, as Brady suddenly pivoted and announced his intentions to return in 2022 to once again suit up for the Bucs.
But what were the chances that he was going to come back and join the Miami Dolphins? Multiple reports indicated that the Dolphins were interested in pursuing Brady in a front-office capacity and quarterback, and during a media session today, he didn’t exactly deny that he’d spoken with them.
Tom Brady didn’t deny the offseason rumors
“I had a lot of conversations with a lot of people, I’ve had for the last three or four years of my career, about different opportunities when I’m done playing football,” Brady told reporters following 2022 Buccaneers minicamp at AdventHealth Training Center. “So, I kind of made a decision of what I’d like to do, and I’ll get to be in the game of football.”
Brady has played 22 seasons in the NFL, leaving the game with 624 touchdown passes and 84,250 passing yards with the New England Patriots and Buccaneers. Last season with the Bucs, Brady threw 43 touchdowns along with a career high 5,316 yards.
