Tampa Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady who is just 45 a month ago has seemed to have came off as what many will “non Brady like” in the media as of late as he was in press conference explaining his 11-day absence from the Buccaneers facility.
In the press conference Brady explained his absence as he stated …
“Everyone has different situations they’re dealing with and we all have unique challenges to our lives. I’m 45-years old, man. There’s a lot of shit going on, so you just have to try and figure out life the best you can. You know, it’s a continuous process.”

Many people are now questioning, will this upcoming season be the last we see him on the football as player?
This past March, Brady signed a ten-year deal with Fox Sports to become a analyst for the NFL, a deal that is worth $370 million.
With all of this being said, according to Bobby Thompson from Bucs Report, he believes that this upcoming season will be it for the seven time Super Bowl champion as he doesn’t see Brady playing beyond this season.
When asked about the expectations Brady and the Bucs, he stated …
Yeah … I think this year is Super Bowl or bust for the Buccaneers this year. With nearly all of their starters most likely hitting free agency next offseason with most of them not returning next year. It’s do or die for the Bucs, if they’re going to make a run, they have to make it now.
He also expects this upcoming season to be the last that we see TB12 on the football field as an athlete.
When asked will Brady play beyond this season, he stated ..
Yeah … I think this season will be it for Brady. He has nothing else left prove, done everything there is to do. I don’t someone signing a deal that he did with Fox Sports and returning for another year. He wanted to play until he’s 45 and he just turned 45 last month.”
