Brady worked hard in keeping his body in shape from working out to eating right.
That’s why it isn’t surprising that he seems to be playing better as he gets older.
Last season, he was the runner-up to Aaron Rodgers in the MVP race after finishing the regular season with 5,316 yards and 43 touchdowns.
But while there’s no indication of him slowing down, he chose to retire after their bitter loss to the Los Angeles Rams at home in the Divisional Round.
The seven-time Super Bowl winner declared that he didn’t have the competitive fire to continue playing football.
Yet after 40 days, he regained that drive after announcing that he will play for his 23rd season.
However, the fire to compete might die again, according to Brady himself.

In his recent guesting at the Dan Patrick Show, Brady said, “I had the appetite to compete, and it’s going to be gone soon.”
Brady is hinting that his second retirement is final and it might happen soon.
Could it be as soon as the 2022 season ends for the Buccaneers?
After all, he is in the final contract year with the team and he has nothing left to prove.
Hoping To Leave The Game On A High Note
Returning to the Buccaneers will help Brady achieve his goal of playing until he is 45 years old.
But what would make the milestone more worthwhile is if he wins his eighth Super Bowl title.
He has the energy to do that and a roster that can help him get there.
Hoisting another trophy wouldn’t be easy, but the Buccaneers have the tools to get it done.
If Brady leaves the game a winner, that’s the best ending he could hope for.
