This news comes out of the woodworks just 6 weeks after hinting at new adjustments to his life being the priority, especially where his family is concerned.
The football icon has had an illustrious career spanning over 22 years, recording the highest stats notably in 624 touchdown passes and 84,250 passing yards. Not only have the numbers on the board soared, but the online sportsbooks indicate a tumultuous reaction too upon Brady's reappearance.

Don't call it a comeback. The seven-time Super Bowl winner returns to Tampa Bay to play his 23rd NFL season with a vengeance and a winning mentality restored in him as you could imagine, as he faces an uphill challenge against all odds stacked against him on the road to regaining the title.
His statement was clear on his verified Twitter account, citing the quote "These past two months I've realized my place is still on the field and not in the stands. That time will come. But it's not now. I love my teammates, and I love my supportive family. They make it all possible. I'm coming back for my 23rd season in Tampa. Unfinished business LFG".
The job is far from done by the sounds of it. TB12 returns to a properly constructed roster after a majority of the Bucs team were either plagued by injuries or listed as free agents. However, they are fast becoming the biggest threat to the Rams in the NFC.
