With Tom Brady becoming a minority owner of the Las Vegas Raiders and the news of Jimmy Garoppolo failing his physical with the team, many have speculated that Brady could return and play for the Raiders in 2023, but he came out and emphatically shut the door on that possibility.

“I'm certain I'm not playing again, so I've tried to make that clear and I hate to continue to profess that 'cause I've already told people that lots of times,” Tom Brady said in a video with Robin Lundbert of Sports Illustrated.

Brady is excited about his role with the Raiders, but is not going to play for the team. He is also scheduled to join the Fox sports booth in the 2024 season, which he said he is excited to do as well. He also said he wants to spend more time with his kids.

“But I'm looking forward to my broadcasting job at Fox next year. I'm looking forward to the opportunity ahead with the Raiders, and we're in the process of that, along with the other different things that I'm a part of professionally and in my personal life. Just spending as much time with my kids as I can, and seeing them grow up and support the different things that they have going on, and that's a very important job, and I take them all pretty seriously.”

Due to Brady's comeback after a brief retirement in 2022 and the news regarding Jimmy Garoppolo, it is not a surprise that many speculated about another comeback, but he firmly shut the door on a return once again.
