In the last two months, I realized that my place was always on the pitch and not in the stands. That time will come. But it’s not now. I love my teammates and I love my family who support me. They make it all possible. I’m coming back for my 23rd season in Tampa. LFG Unfinished Business pic.twitter.com/U0yhRKVKVm

Ben Volin of boston globe reported that the wheels were in motion behind the scenes for the legendary quarterback to join the front office of the Miami Dolphins, where he reportedly helped recruit longtime New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton, to lead the staff.

After the Bucs found a new starting quarterback, he would have basically helped find a trade for himself and then returned as an active player for Miami.

The plan fell apart when former Dolphins head coach Brian Flores sued the NFL and its teams for alleged racial discrimination in their hiring and firing practices.

Brady and Co. realized that the prospect of hiring a white executive and white coach following Flores’ lawsuit would have drawn a lot of criticism, leading him to choose between returning to Tampa Bay or staying at the retirement, according to Volin.

So the seven-time Super Bowl champion is back with the Buccaneers, but how long he will remain an active player remains a mystery.

Based on his performance, it’s possible the 44-year-old California native could play for quite a while.

Brady remained one of the best players in the NFL in 2021. He made 67.5% of his throws for league highs in yards (5,316) and touchdowns (43) and 12 interceptions while playing all 17 games for the Bucs. He finished second in MVP voting to Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers.

He will become a free agent after the 2022 campaign, so next offseason he will have a chance to decide whether to stay in Tampa, sign with a new team like Miami, or head to the broadcast booth.

He’s going to make a lot of money, regardless of his final decision.
