Patriots star Tom Brady still has yet to commit to 2018 season

Last seen in Qatar with his family, five-time Super Bowl winner and three-time league MVP Tom Brady may be sending a message to New England that he's not going to be around forever.

Perhaps, the retirement talk is a little more real than people imagined. 


New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady hasn't committed to playing next season, though sources close to the five-time Super Bowl winner think he'll be back in uniform, according to ESPN.


Multiple sources say he'd prefer to continue playing, but some in his inner circle would like for him to retire.

I have a wife (Gisele Bndchen) that aspires to be a lot of things, and she travels a lot. Our kids my oldest son lives here in New York three kids, and you're just always trying to juggle and you want to be there for them, and you want to be there for the hockey games and the soccer games. But you also realize the level of commitment it takes to give as much as you can to the team that needs you.

Brady hasn't said whether he's playing or not. While the Patriots started their offseason OTAs, the quarterback was in Qatar with his family.


"I believe he's going to be there," another person who knows Brady told ESPN. "However, having said that, we're dealing with a human being. Things can change. But I do believe he will be playing."
