NFL – Playoffs – Tom Brady retired at the end of the season? Possible, especially in the event of a new Super Bowl title

Tom Brady is only two games away from another Super Bowl. It would be the 11th of his career. A stunning statistic. But these 2022 playoffs could also mark the end of his exceptional career. According to ESPN, the Tampa Bay quarterback would indeed seriously consider hanging up at the end of this season, even if it is still only a hypothesis.

Last year, Brady had quickly announced that he would continue his career for at least one season. « I really think I can play as long as I want. Truly. I could actually play until I was 50 or 55 if I wanted to.“, he even confided last October. At almost 45 years old, he still shows no sign of decline and is even a favorite to be named MVP of the regular season.

At least a month to decide

But according to ESPN, retirement is now an option. During the season, he had nevertheless sent favorable signals for the continuation of his career. The situation would now have changed. « In a way, the situation is no different from any season, but for Brady, who has one year left on his contract, the idea of ​​retirement has become a reality, more than ‘she’s never been before« , writes on its website the American media, which adds that the star should give « at least a month“once the season is over before making a decision.

Several elements could come into play, starting with the fate of the Buccaneers in these playoffs. If Tampa were to retain its title on February 13 in Los Angeles, the chances of seeing Tom Brady withdraw would be all the more important. He would then go through a huge door, with an eighth Super Bowl title. Tampa Bay, winner of Philadelphia (31-15) last week for its entry into the playoffs, receives the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday evening. If successful, the Bucs would face San Francisco in the NFC Finals.
