Tom Brady’s ‘love for the game’ inspired un-retirement, NFL return

Tom Brady rocked the NFL when he announced his retirement on Feb. 1 following the end of a disappointing Buccaneers season by his standards. However, he reversed course just over a month later, announcing on social media that he would be coming back for his 23rd NFL season.

On Monday, Brady revealed to ESPN that he started to think about a return even earlier in March, when Tampa Bay began free agency. He realized that he could still compete from a physical standpoint and that there was “still a place” for him in the NFL.

“I knew my body, physically, could still do what it could do and obviously I have a love for the game, I think I’ll always have a love for the game,” Brady told ESPN. “I think physically I’ll be able to do it. I just felt like there was still a place for me in the field. ”
