The Return of Brady – A Nightmare for the NFL


Anthony Malta, News Editor

Tom Brady, the GOAT of the National Football League, is retired. His records will sit atop the history books, waiting to be broken.




Of course not. In typical “Tom Brady fashion,” as I called it when I reported about Brady’s alleged retirement, the quarterback is rejoining the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for his 23rd NFL season. 


Just like that, Brady adds another crazy stat to his resume’ — the recent Major League Baseball lockout (43 days until the MLB’s Player Association and MLB could reach a deal) lasted longer than the GOAT’s retirement (40 days).


Brady revealed the news on social media. 


“These past two months I’ve realized my place is on the field and not in the stands. That time will come. But it is not now,” the statement read. “I’m coming back for my 23rd season in Tampa.”


After being bested by the Los Angeles Rams in the 2022 Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs, many believed the Buccaneer’s competitiveness in the league was behind them. With Brady returning, it’s looking like Tampa Bay could be in the running for another trophy —after all, the best winner of all time is at the helm for one more season.
