TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady has teased a potential return to the NFL, according to a post on his Twitter page Sunday afternoon.

In the tweet, Brady wrote: “Over the past two months I’ve come to realize that my place is always on the pitch and not in the stands. That time will come. But it’s not now. I love my teammates and I love my family who support me. They make it all possible. I’m coming back for my 23rd season in Tampa. LFG unfinished business.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians and general manager Jason Licht met with the media and News Channel 8’s Dan Lucas earlier this month. The biggest question of the offseason for the Bucs revolved around quarterback Tom Brady, or a lack of Brady following his sudden retirement a week after the Bucs’ divisional playoff loss to the Los Angeles Rams.

“It was really a shock to me because I had convinced myself that he was coming back,” Arians said. “Every conversation I had, he felt good physically, he was playing good and having a lot of fun.”

Brady was considered by many to be the most successful quarterback in NFL history. Throughout his unprecedented 22-year NFL career, Brady won seven Super Bowls and set numerous assisting records.

In February, Brady said it was better for me to leave the playing field to the next generation of dedicated and committed athletes.
