In a post-game press conference, Brady made some uncharacteristic comments of his own, leaving much of his future in limbo.
Take a listen for yourself.

In his final post-game interview of the season, Brady thanked not only his coaches and teammates but the reporting staff as well.
Although it’s not uncommon for players to make comments like this, it does seem to be pretty timely, especially considering Brady’s age and all of the comments and speculation that have surrounded him over the last few months.
If Brady does retire, he will retire as arguably the greatest football player of all time, given his seven Super Bowl rings, and countless accolades and records that he has broken throughout the years.
However, it also doesn’t seem very Brady-esque for him to retire after losing a playoff game.
He has already retired and un-retired once, which caused an uproar and led to many questions.
Brady’s status will likely be one of the biggest topics in sports media for the next several months until he makes a decision either way.
At this time, it doesn’t appear that he will go back to the Buccaneers.
Brady will either retire and move to the broadcasting booth, or find himself on a different team in 2023.
Which team would be the best fit for Brady, considering his age and current play style and abilities?
