Conflicting Reports About Whether Tom Brady Is Retiring

CHICAGO (CBS/AP) —The burning question out of the NFL Saturday is whether Tom Brady is retiring.

There are conflicting reports about the his fate.

Sources close to the quarterback claimed he is hanging up his helmet after a 22-year career, but late Saturday afternoon he reportedly told the general manager of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers he has not made up his mind about retirement just yet.

Brady led the Bucs to a Super Bowl victory last year. Before that he helped the Patriots win six Super Bowl titles.

ESPN reported Brady's retirement on Saturday, citing unidentified sources. Brady had cited a desire to spend more time with his wife and children despite still playing at the top of his game.

Brady spent 20 years with the New England Patriots before leaving the team in 2020. He signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and took them Super Bowl LV in his first season to win over the Kansas City Chiefs -- marking Brady's seventh career win.
