Tom Brady came into the 2022 season at 45 years old with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
While some doubt the seven-time Super Bowl champion QB, he still believes in himself.
However, he has revealed to NFL fans what his future looks like.
So what is this clear message Brady is giving everyone about his future?
Brady Says Retirement Isn’t In His Future
When asked about his future in the NFL, Brady told reporters that retirement isn’t in his future.

Despite the Buccaneers’ 3-3 start to the season, they still have control over first place in their division.
With them holding the tiebreaker over the Atlanta Falcons, it seems like Brady is still confident about his playing future.
However, the numbers on the star QB this season haven’t been Super Bowl-worthy.
While he’s making his fewest mistakes with throwing interceptions this season, he’s not leading the offense to victories in game.
Brady’s best game this season came in a 41-31 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.
While he finished with 385 passing yards and three touchdowns, it wasn’t enough to win against Patrick Mahomes.
But in Brady’s other games, he’s throwing only one TD in each game.
So does the G.O.A.T. still have it in him, or is he beyond his prime?
Brady Works Best With A Player Like Rob Gronkowski
It’s clear Brady needs Rob Gronkowski this season.
He’s a physical tight-end that can pass protect and catch the deep ball.
With him playing without Gronk, he’s missing out on a huge playmaker on offense.
While Brady can continue to play beyond this year, he needs a Gronk-like player to help him close out games.
