Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady said Monday on his "Let's Go" podcast that he has not made a decision about retiring after 22 seasons in the NFL. "I don't know. I'll know when the time is right. There's a lot of interest in when I'm going to stop playing; I understand that. When I know I'll know, when I don't know I don't know. I'm not going to rush to a conclusion about that," was his explanation.

On Saturday, several sources stated that the considered best player in the history of the NFL had announced his retirement.

Reactions from figures in the league, as well as the NFL, piled into farewells and tributes for the holder of seven Super Bowl rings.

The quarterback's last game this season was in Tampa Bay's 30-27 NFC divisional round loss to the Rams. Brady still has a year left on his contract with the Bucs so he explained that he still has to weigh several things.

"Sometimes it takes time to really assess how you feel and what you want to do. I think when the time is right I'll be ready to make a decision, one way or the other, just like I said," he insisted.

Last Saturday, after the cascade of messages to dismiss the career of the passer, his agent Don Yee wanted to clarify the situation.

"I understand the speculation that has been advanced regarding Tom's future. Without getting into the accuracy or inaccuracy of what is being reported, Tom will be the only person to express his plans with complete accuracy, which should happen soon," Yee said.

In his podcast, the quarterback also explained that it was never his intention to detract from the NFC and AFC finals that were about to be played.

"The focus has to be on those big games, I was trying to enjoy a great weekend of games. It didn't happen that way because my phone rang all the time, but it's part of the situation I'm in."

Tom Brady; 15-time Pro Bowl, an NFL record; He finished the 2021 season as the number one passer in yards with 5,316 and with the most touchdowns, 43. He also closed his participation in the playoffs with 86 touchdown passes in his career, another league record.
