On the morning of February 1, Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady retired, in his own words“for good.”
On May 22, Brady became part-owner of Raidersa move that likely shuts the door on any potential return to football due to league rules.
However … rumors of Brady’s second return.
Monday Night Football color commentator and Hall of Fame quarterback Troy Aikman is the latest to wake them up in an interview with TMZ Sports posted Tuesday morning.
“Maybe (he) will be involved (with the Raiders) to the point where he’s the right fit,” Aikman said. “I don’t want to speak for Tom. (But) I will not rule out anything. Obviously he has a relationship with the head coach, he knows the offense, he’s going to keep himself in good shape… I’ll bet there’s nothing off the table, as far as it goes at the moment, or what Tom’s role is. be. I think he’s done playing, but you never know.
The main obstacle to a potential return for Brady—aside from the seven-time Super Bowl champion wanting to suit up at age 45—is an NFL rule that says no player can play while holding of a team’s financial interest without the consent of each league owner.
But, with the quarterback It’s Jimmy Garoppolo contract is reported on the rocks, it seems clearly plausible that Las Vegas may have the desire to at least float a potential return to Brady, regardless of the consequences.
