Quarterback Tom Brady on Wednesday threw more fuel into the burning mystery regarding his football career with another cryptic statement. On Tuesday, the 44-year-old Brady answered "to be determined" when asked if his "Let's Go" podcast with Jim Gray is the only job he has right now.

The following day, Brady added more mystery to his future during his interview with Fred Couples on SiriusXM radio, per Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk. When asked by Couples, "maybe you can tell us where you're going?" Brady provided a lengthy answer that would keep his fans guessing.

"I wish I had a clear vision of what the future holds," said Brady, adding that there are a lot of great opportunities for him after the football season. Brady said he's currently spending time with his family in the last five weeks, and he expects more to come in the coming days. As of now, Brady said he keeps himself busy by playing golf and visiting his parents.

"I'm looking forward to some golf in the next few days and some more family time, and then we'll figure out where we go from there," he said. Days after losing to the Los Angeles Rams in the NFC Divisional Round, Brady announced his retirement after 22 years in the NFL – 20 with the New England Patriots and two with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

But Brady raised the likelihood of returning to the NFL when he said that he would never say never to a possible comeback.

Earlier, Buccaneer's general manager Jason Licht said that the team would keep the light on Brady in case he decides to cut short his retirement and return to the NFL.

Tampa Bay head coach Bruce Arians echoed Licht's sentiment, saying Brady's door is always open.

However, Arians said the Buccaneers wouldn't entertain any trade for Brady, but he said he could ask for five No. 1 pick from any team that would be interested in the quarterback's services. It was reported earlier that the Miami Dolphins planned on pursuing Brady as a quarterback and minority owner this offseason, but the move did not push through.

Buccaneers plan to keep Chris Godwin

The Buccaneers used their franchise tag to keep star wide receiver Chris Godwin after winning their first Super Bowl title since 2002 following a 31-9 triumph over the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LV.

Last season, Godwin led the team with 98 catches for 1,103 yards and six total touchdowns before suffering a season-ending knee injury in Week 15.

According to Scott Smith of Buccaneers, with Godwin expected to hit the free-agent market, the Buccaneers intend to keep him for the long haul, according to Scott Smith of Buccaneers.com. "Chris has meant the world to this organization. Quite frankly, it would be hard for me to imagine moving forward without Chris," said Licht.
