He did retire at the end of the 2021 season after losing in the Divisional Round against the Los Angeles Rams.
But he ended his retirement 40 days after and will play in his 23rd NFL season.
The 44-year-old quarterback would like to win another Super Bowl to finish his legendary career on a high note.
Having eight Super Bowl titles is a record that would be hard to surpass even if someone plays as long as him.
But once he leaves the game without turning back, he will join FOX Sports as their lead analyst.
It’s a role that suits him well because of his in-depth football knowledge and his star personality.
Brady will be able to share his wisdom as he dissects plays that were either successes or failures.
While his post-football career is already secured, Brady will focus on his current role first.

Brady said in response to FOX Sports: NFL’s tweet, “Excited, but a lot of unfinished business on the field with the @Buccaneers #LFG.”
Buccaneers Back With A Vengeance
It looked like Brady was about to complete another seemingly impossible comeback against the Rams.
Brady helped tie the count at 30 with a touchdown pass to Mike Evans during their Divisional Round game.
But their season ended when Matt Gay scored a walk-off field goal.
The Buccaneers would like to have another go at a Super Bowl ring and possibly get payback against the Rams.
They have the roster to compete against the defending Super Bowl champions, especially with Brady returning.
Anything less than an NFC Championship Game appearance should be a disappointment for Tampa Bay.
