Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady has decided to continue playing football in 2022. But it wasn’t an easy decision for the soon-to-be 45-year-old quarterback.

“You know, at this point it’s like 55% yes and 45% no,” Brady After Last Night’s Golf Match, via Rick Stroud of The Tampa Bay Weather. “It’s just the reality. It’s not that I’m not 100% committed, it’s just as soon as I commit to it, it’s like ‘Ugh. All right, here we are. It’s like running a marathon. You can’t decide two weeks before the marathon, ‘Hey, I’m going to start running.’ We went straight to free agency and I felt some pressure to do it and I talked to the team and the organization and it all worked out.

Of course, Brady’s decision to return to the Bucs came after trying to find a path to Miami. A Dolphins plan to acquire Brady and former Saints coach Sean Payton imploded after former Dolphins coach Brian Flores filed a historic discrimination lawsuit on Feb. 1.

He will be a free agent in 2023. He will have to decide again if he should continue. If he doesn’t continue in the field, he’ll walk into Fox’s broadcast booth, as the network’s top analyst.

Finally, remember this when Brady starts talking about 55%, 45% and 100%. He said last June that 90% of the things he says don’t reflect how he really feels. So there’s a 10% chance that what he said last night is the truth.
