TAMPA, FL–Football fans are buzzing following a bombshell revelation from Tom Brady over the weekend. On Sunday, the 22-year NFL veteran took to Twitter to declare his return for the 2022-2023 season. The decision comes less than one month after the quarterback announced his retirement from the sport. In any event, Brady is back, and there’s no question he’s still got something special left in the tank.

Speaking candidly with Freedumb Press on Monday, Brady recounted his six-week-long retirement. “When you’re not working, there’s this expectation your family gets that you’re available. Like, whenever. The kids are there every day. It’s not what I expected. I thought there would be more peace and quiet in retirement,” Brady conveyed before launching into more complaints about time with his family. “I’m just sitting there with my son. He’s staring at me a lot, and he’s talkative, and he’s asking questions. I’m sitting there trying to figure out what I do with this person. Do I kiss him again? Can he throw a Hail Mary? When does he feed? It’s all weird. The stress of it all had me eating like a billion almonds a day.”

The seven-time Super Bowl champion admitted having doubts about retiring after only a few days. “I thought it was probably natural to feel like the whole thing was fucked up. I prayed that things would settle down before too long,” Brady continued. Unfortunately, things didn’t settle down. Everyone at home fought for his attention, while all Tom wanted to do was eat almonds. “This woman, let’s call her ‘Gisele,’ says I have to stop gorging almonds all day so that I’m hungry for family dinner. And I say family dinner sucks more than Drew Bledsoe does, and I tell Gisele that I see enough of her and the kids as it is. This didn’t go over well, and she confiscated my almonds. If I can’t eat almonds, then what has this all been for? That was my breaking point.”

Following that encounter last week, Brady knew he was due back in the NFL. He announced his comeback without consulting his family and hopes to stay in the NFL “at least until all the kids are away at college.”
