Tom Brady responds profanely when asked about the future of the NFL

All quiet on the Tom Brady front.

Brady appeared on SiriusXM’s weekly podcast, “Let’s Go!” with Jim Gray, and was asked if he has a timeline for when he will decide whether to retire or return for a 24th NFL season.

“Jim, if I knew what the f–king was going to do, I would have already f–king done it,” said Brady, once again an NFL free agent. “I take it every day.”

Gray pleaded which was the question everyone wanted to hear. Brady didn’t flinch.

“You scratch. I appreciate your question. Thank you,” he said.

The Buccaneers finished 8-9, but won the NFC South for the second straight year and clinched their third consecutive playoff berth. Brady struggled in the team’s first-round playoff loss to the Cowboys last Monday night, throwing for just 5.3 yards per attempt and throwing a rough interception in the red zone in the first half. Tampa Bay fired offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich after the Brady-backed unit generally failed to produce consistently this season.

Last offseason, Brady retired briefly before finally deciding to return last season. He turns 46 in August.

If Brady decides to return to the NFL and leave Tampa Bay, there are several destinations that would make sense, including the Raiders (a reunion with Josh McDaniels), the Patriots (where he is speculated to return in November) and the Dolphins (who tried to woo him for years and were even caught trespassing).

Several of his former Patriots teammates have chimed in, with Rob Gronkowski saying he can’t see Brady retiring and even Julian Edelman saying there’s no way the longtime QB returns to the Bucs.

“Let me tell you, whichever situation intrigues him the most,” Gronkowski said. “Any opportunity that gets him more excited to play football, that’s where he’ll be next year.”

Last season, Brady and model Gisele Bundchen finalized their divorce after 13 years of marriage.
