Tom Brady can return to NFL after Will Levis draft decision.

"I’ll get to the point right away, I’m retiring for good," Tom Brady said on February 1, yet speculations have persisted that he may not be done.

The seven-time Super Bowl champion's first retirement announcement in 2022 was rescinded after an injury-plagued Tampa Bay Buccaneers season and a wildcard round loss.

How does the greatest quarterback ever feel without football? There are hints that the 45-year-old may retire again.

Last week at the eMerge Americas technology conference, the New England Patriots legend evaded a question regarding his "for good" retirement.

The Dolphins don't have a first-round pick this year because of Brady. After Brady met Fins owner Stephen Ross on a yacht in 2020, the team was fined for tampering.

No smoke without fire, and with concerns over Tua Tagaovailoa's health after last season's thumping, Brady may play at Hard Rock Stadium this season.

After selecting seventh in the NFL draft, the Las Vegas Raiders are another possibility. 

The Raiders chose Texas Tech edge rusher Tyree Wilson over Kentucky standout Will Levis, the top quarterback prospect.

Jimmy Garoppolo and Brian Hoyer, two former Patriots and Brady teammates, share the QB room with head coach Josh McDaniels, who coached Brady to all six of his Foxborough crowns.

Garoppolo is well-known entering his 11th season. In the correct system, he can be an effective game manager,

but he is injury-prone, thus his debut season at Allegiant Stadium must be a concern. Hoyer is a good backup but not a team leader.

Brady looks open to returning. He has hundreds of millions of dollars in a Fox broadcasting career, yet he just led the Bucs to the playoffs.
