Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady recently came back from a 41-day retirement for his 23rd NFL season. Many are assuming that it would be the final season for the soon-to-be 45-year-old Brady before he joins Fox Sports as its top football analyst. But Brady, during an interview with Variety, kept the fans and rivals guessing about his future in the NFL. “Could this be my last year? Absolutely. Could I change my mind? Absolutely,” Brady said.

The seven-time Super Bowl champion admitted that he doesn’t have five years left so he wants to do it his way and wants to give everything he’s got.

“My body feels really good,” said Brady, adding that it would be great if the Buccaneers win their second Super Bowl title in three years. If the Buccaneers indeed win Super Bowl LVII, Brady said it would be the greatest way to end his Hall of Fame-bound career. “I just have a competitive fire that got the best of me,” added Brady, who led the league in passing yards (5,316), passing touchdowns (43) and completions last season. Despite Brady’s Herculean effort, the Buccaneers lost to the Los Angeles Rams in the NFC Divisional Round. After the loss, Brady announced his retirement from the NFL but came back 41 days later.
