Tom Brady Backtracking On Retiring Again Is ‘100% In Play,’ Former Quarterback Claims
Tom Brady may not be done with the NFL yet, as a former quarterback is saying that he may be coming out of retirement once again.
Earlier this week, we reported that Tom Brady was denying rumors that he is preparing to un-retire for a second time and make another return to professional football. Now, however, the former NFL quarterback Scott Zolak is claiming that Brady “100 percent” may un-retire to play for the Miami Dolphins.

‘Brady May Go To Miami’
“Brady may go to Miami,” Zolak told NBC Sports. “I think that’s in play. I do. I think the possibility of him coming out of retirement is definitely 100 percent in play. You can sit there and look at the kitten tweet from [Tuesday.] Don’t buy that.”
Zolak was referring to Brady’s tweet that read, “Anyone who thinks I have time to come back to the NFL has never adopted a 2 month old kitten for their daughter.”

Daily Mail reported that Brady shares a 10 year-old daughter named Vivian with his supermodel ex-wife Gisele Bündchen, who he divorced last year amidst rumors that she did not like the fact that he came out of retirement to play another season for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

“This isn’t me saying it. This isn’t someone close to Brady. It started with Rich Eisen,” Zolak continued. “Eisen’s at the Super Bowl. Multiple people dropped the hints. Colin Cowherd, he knows some FOX people. I don’t think he’s gonna call games. How does that deal get done? How do you sign a guy to that $375 million, 10-year contract to call games, he’s not even gonna do it next year.”
“I know his handlers have moved to Miami. It’s built for him,” he added. “He’s looking at private schools for his kids. Cowherd talks about the San Francisco offense. He’s not talking about San Francisco. He’s talking about Mike McDaniel in Miami.”
Tom Brady might not be “done after all" with his playing in the NFL, according to @RichEisenShow who talked to people in Indy.

Eisen Reports On Rumor
This comes after Eisen spoke out about the rumors regarding Brady coming out of retirement on Monday.
“Number one rumor I heard at the [NFL] Combine? Not in terms of chatter, but this one just blew my mind: Tom Brady may not be done after all,” Eisen said. “A couple people were just like, ‘Hang on, just you wait.’ And I’m like, ‘He’s Instagramming out [pictures] of his cat, you know?’ But it doesn’t look like he’s getting big and fat, does it? Let it play out. Let’s see who wants what.”
Eisen went on to say that “folks are saying keep an eye out” for Brady to potentially sign with the Miami Dolphins, whose current quarterback Tua Tagovailoa missed several games last season due to concussions.
“If somehow, some way, a doctor’s report [is published], a medical evaluation of Tua [Tagovailoa] that he may not be ready to go, suddenly there’s Tom Brady sitting in Florida where his family is located and where he can easily locate himself,” Eisen concluded.
Will the GOAT return?
On The Rich Eisen Show, @richeisen said he heard from a couple of people that, “Tom Brady may not be done after all.”
He added, “And the one place that folks are saying keep an eye out for is Miami.” 👀 pic.twitter.com/oPz4eFHhUq

Brady’s Retirement History
Brady initially retired last year, only to change his mind a few weeks later and play another season with the Buccaneers. He then retired again last month in an emotional video that was posted to social media.
“I’ll get to the point right away: I’m retiring for good,” Brady said in the video. “I know the process was a pretty big deal last time, so when I woke up this morning I figured I’d just press record and let you guys know first. So I won’t be long-winded.”
“I think you only get one super-emotional retirement essay, and I used mine up last year,” he continued. “So, really, thank you guys, so much, to every single one of you, for supporting me. My family, my friends, teammates, my competitors, I could go on forever, there’s too many. Thank you, guys, for letting me live my absolute dream. I wouldn’t change a thing. Love you all.”
Truly grateful on this day. Thank you 🙏🏻❤️ pic.twitter.com/j2s2sezvSS

Given the fact that he has done this before, it wouldn’t be a huge surprise if Brady un-retires again for a second time. Only time will tell if we will ever see him play professional football again!
