The Unretiring Tom Brady: A Family Man’s Decision

Tom Brady, the 7-time Super Bowl champion, has made it abundantly clear that he will not be returning to the NFL, no matter how many times the idea is brought up. In a recent episode of his podcast, Let’s Go! with Tom Brady, Larry Fitzgerald, and Jim Gray, the topic of unretiring came up once again. Their special guest, Jimmy Donaldson (better known as Mr. Beast from YouTube), jokingly suggested that Brady’s ratings would skyrocket if he returned to the football field.

Brady responded with conviction, stating, “I am NOT coming out of retirement.” He acknowledged Mr. Beast’s suggestion as clever but emphasized that his family is the main reason for his decision. Even when Jim Gray, his co-host, tried to convince him otherwise, Brady stood his ground, saying, “My parents would call, my kids would call. They would kill me. I wouldn’t be around by tonight.”

Brady’s Retirement Journey

To understand the context, it’s important to note that Tom Brady retired from the NFL for the first time on February 1, 2022, after an incredible 22-year career. However, he surprised everyone when he returned to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after just 40 days and played the 2022 season. Then, on February 1, 2023, he retired again, this time for good.

“As I said, you’re only allowed one un-retirement. And I’ve used it up,” Brady explained on his podcast, responding to Jim Gray’s suggestion for a more original idea to boost ratings. He jokingly added, “So at this point, I’m just looking forward to being in more of your videos ’cause my kids don’t think I’m s–t,” speaking directly to Mr. Beast.

Brady acknowledged Mr. Beast’s influence on the younger generation and humorously admitted that his own children, John ‘Jack’ Edward Thomas, Benjamin Rein, and Vivian Lake, are more likely to listen to Mr. Beast than to their own father. He playfully stated, “So I’m actually trying to stay on their good side.” Perhaps a collaboration between Tom Brady and Mr. Beast could be in the works.

An Exciting Collaboration

Imagine the legendary collaboration between Tom Brady, the current G.O.A.T. (Greatest of All Time) of YouTube, and one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time. It would be absolutely incredible! It wouldn’t matter what they do – people from all around the world would be eager to tune in.

If you’re excited about the possibility of this collaboration, here’s some good news: the wheels are already in motion. During a recent podcast, Mr. Beast extended an invitation to Tom Brady to be a contestant in one of his YouTube videos and even provided a preview of what that collaboration might look like.

Mr. Beast enthusiastically declared, “Yeah, come on down. It’d be fun to have you as a contestant. Imagine my viewers, they click on a video and it’s like a hundred people competing, and then all of a sudden, it’s Tom Brady. They’d be like, what the heck? It’d be so funny.” Doesn’t that sound like something you would watch?

Tom Brady seemed to be intrigued by the idea, but there was one condition – they had to pick a competition that made him look good. Brady said, “I’ll do it. We just need to choose a competition where I can somewhat excel. You can’t bury me alive or something like that!” Even in retirement, the burning desire to win still fuels Brady.

So, keep your eyes peeled for a potential collaboration between Tom Brady and Mr. Beast. It’s bound to be an unforgettable experience that will bring joy to fans from all walks of life.
