Tom Brady has signed to become the highest TV NFL analyst when he retires from playing. The question is, when will that happen? No one at One Buc knows, and if Brady knows, he isn't saying.

TAMPA, Fla. – Buccaneers’ Tom Brady’s status for the 2023 season, whether in Tampa or another NFL team, isn’t exactly clear, but a new report Sunday seems to have shed some light on what the quarterback may be thinking.

Brady’s in the final year of his contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and is still at MVP -worthy numbers.

Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero of NFL Network said,  “all options are on the table” as far as the 45-year-old’s future. Brady, who will be a free agent at the end of this season, reportedly “feels good enough to keep playing,” which is not a small consideration when you’ll be starting your 24th season at age 46, and some of your teammates will be starting their first season at age 22.

Prior to joining the Buccaneers in 2020, multiple teams were clamoring for the quarterback when the New England Patriots star hit the market, including the San Francisco 49ers and Las Vegas Raiders among them.

Brady will play the 49ers on Sunday in a homecoming game for the San Mateo, California, native.

Earlier this week, Brady told The Free Press’ Rock Riley at a press conference, “Well, I’m not a 49ers fan anymore,” Brady told The Free Press’ Rock Riley when asked if he could put his emotions aside for this game. “Yeah, that’s long gone. Yeah, I put those emotions away, too. I think my emotion is to do everything I can to help us win this game.”

The Bucs are coming off a thrilling finish Monday night, where Brady threw two touchdown passes to beat the New Orleans Saints 17-6. Brady led scoring drives of 91 and 63 yards to even the Bucs record at 6-6 and stand alone atop the NFC South.

Brady went on to gush about this current 49ers team and their coaching staff and says it’ll be a big task to pull off the upset Sunday.

“We’re playing a great football team,” Brady said. “Best defense in the league, some incredible players in (Nick) Bosa, (Fred) Warner. I’ve got a lot of respect for those guys; they do a lot of things well, really well coached. (Kyle) Shanahan is a helluva coach. DeMeco Ryan is a great coach. I played against him as a player, he was a great player, he’s turning out to be a great coach. They do a lot of things well. It’s going to be a huge challenge for us.”

The 49ers will be starting a rookie QB in Brock Purdy, who helped San Francisco beat the Miami Dolphins last week when starting quarterback Jimmy Garappolo went down in the first quarter.
