Tom is the greatest quarterback of all time and he’s still performing at an exceptional level. With this decision made, we will proceed with our offseason plans to strengthen our team for another championship pursuit.”

    Bruce Arians has been open to speaking about the likelihood of Brady returning. However, he didn’t think he’d return as fast as he did, let alone at all. Arians took into consideration that he has his family’s life to be a part of. For example, his children are getting older, and he figured Brady want to spend more time with his wife, Gisele Bundchen.
