Tom Brady announced his retirement, saying that he won’t make the same competitive commitment he did for the previous 22 seasons.
You can look at it one way and say that he will devote his time moving forward to his family and his growing business empire.
However, it’s difficult to say that Brady has no competitive fire left in his body anymore.
He’s been a competitor for roughly half his life and it would be hard to take that spirit away after one offseason.
Therefore, there’s a glimmer of possibility that Brady will do a U-turn and return to the NFL.
Rumors say that playing for his childhood team, the San Francisco 49ers, would be the perfect ending to his storybook career.
But former NFL quarterback Robert Griffin III has another option for the seven-time Super Bowl winner.

Griffin said in his tweet, “Tom Brady is retired. BUT if he decides to come back, the Indianapolis Colts would be a great fit for him. If he can get over the whole Deflategate thing.”
He also said during his appearance on ESPN’s Get Up:
“Yeah, Indy is a great team for Tom Brady to play for. They’ve got the pieces in place, great defense. Offensively, he’s got a great running back in Jonathan Taylor that he can lean on and an offensive line to protect him and it’s indoors.”
Final Piece Of The Puzzle?
How ironic would it be if Brady became the savior of the franchise he once tormented for so long?
The Colts’ top brass are looking to move away from Carson Wentz and acquire another quarterback.
If the passing game fails, Taylor can breeze from the backfield for massive yardage.
