Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady gave a profanity-laced response this week when asked about his football future.
Brady was asked on the “Let’s Go!” podcast whether he has made a decision about whether he will play another season in the league.
“If I knew what I was going to f***ing do, I would’ve already f***ing done it,” Brady asked.. “I’m taking it a day at a time.”
“I appreciate you asking,” he added. “Thank you.”
After Tampa Bay lost in the NFC wild-card round against the Dallas Cowboys, Brady said he would take time to determine what his future plans would be.
“I’m going to go home and get a good night’s sleep as soon as I can tonight,” Brady said. “There’s been a lot of focus on this game. Just one day at a time.”
Brady was fined $16,444 for unnecessary roughness after he tried to trip Dallas Cowboys safety Malik Hooker during the NFC wild-card game.
Hooker had recovered a fumble from Tampa Bay wide receiver Chris Goodwin in the third quarter and was heading upfield when Tampa Bay wide receiver Julio Jones tackled him as Brady attempted to take Hooker’s legs out from under him. The Buccaneers ultimately lost the game, 31-14, marking the end of the 45-year-old’s season and possibly the end of his storied career.
Following the game, Brady said that the loss was “not the way we wanted to end it, but we didn’t deserve it.”
“I just want to say thank you guys for everything you did this year,” he added. “I really appreciate all your effort. I know it’s hard for you guys. I know it’s hard for us players to make it through. You guys got a tough job, and I appreciate all that you guys do to cover us, and everyone who watches and is a big fan of the sport — we’re very grateful for everyone’s support. You know hopefully, I love this organization. It’s a great place to be.”
“Thank you everybody for welcoming me, all the regulars,” Brady continued, as he sounded like he was getting choked up. “And I’m just very grateful for the respect, and I hope I gave the same thing back to you guys. So thank you very much.”
