Former New England QB Tom Brady stepped away from the game on Feb. 1, 2023, after 23 long seasons in the league. After countless wins and broken records, the future Hall-of-Fame signal caller wanted to walk away from the game.

It seemed like he was done with the game of football. He had a big-time TV gig lined up while also hoping to become a partial owner of an NFL franchise. Things are looking great in his post-playing career but the 46-year-old signal caller isn't shying away from a potential return.

Brady appeared on the "DeepCut with VicBlends" podcast and spoke about a potential return to the NFL. He was asked if he would entertain the idea of returning midseason for a team that is looking for a quarterback.

Brady responded, "I’m not opposed to it. I don’t know if they’re gonna let me if I become an owner in an NFL team, but I don’t know if — I don’t know, I’m always going to be in good shape, I’m always gonna be able to throw the ball, so to come in for a little bit like (Michael Jordan) coming back — I don’t know if they’d let me — but I wouldn’t be opposed to it.”

Brady continued to beat Father Time in the back half of his career. Could he do it again? Who knows but teams around the league would be clamoring to bring in Brady midseason if their starting QB went down with an injury.

The seven-time Super Bowl champion holds the NFL all-time record in passing yards (89,214), completions (7,753), and passing touchdowns (649).

Even in his final season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Brady tossed 4,694 yards with a 25-9 touchdown to interception ratio.

Brady is the greatest football player of all time and if he wants to come back to play, someone in the league would ink him to a deal. Maybe even Robert Kraft and the New England Patriots.
