Despite the poor start to the Buccaneers season, Tom Brady isn’t regretting his decision to make a return to the NFL. He announced his retirement in 2021. Brady was asked Friday by reporters whether he regrets the Buccaneers’ first season struggles. Brady replied with a clear no.
“Zero, no. Definitely not,” Brady stated, “Personal” ESPN. “I returned because I felt like I wanted to compete, and I spoke to the team about it and they were excited to have me back. I don’t really regret those types of things — I think when I commit to it I mean it, and I do my best and try to give everything I can to this particular opportunity.”
Brady didn’t mention his divorce from Gisele Bündchen while discussing his return to football. He and Bündchen split after 13 years of marriage. In October, the former couple shared their news via Instagram.
“In recent days, my wife and I finalized our divorce from one another after 13 years of marriage,” Brady wrote in an Instagram story. “We arrived at this decision amicably and with gratitude for the time we spent together. We are blessed with beautiful and wonderful children who will continue to be the center of our world in every way. We will continue to work together as parents to always ensure they receive the love and attention they deserve.”
Bündchen’s statement read, “”My first priority has always been, and will remain, my children. I love them with all my heart. To give them the love, attention and care they deserve, we will continue to co-parent.
Brady has shared his feelings about the impact of the divorce on his performance, just as any major life event. “I think there’s a lot of professionals in life that go through things that they deal with at work and they deal with at home,” He said it on Sirius XM’s show “Let’s Go! With Tom Brady, Larry Fitzgerald and Jim Gray.” “Obviously, the good news is it’s a very amicable situation, and I’m really focused on two things: taking care of my family and certainly my children and secondly, doing the best job I can to win football games.”
He continued, “So, that’s what professionals do. You focus at work when it’s time to work, and then when you come home, you focus on the priorities that are at home. All you can do is the best you could do. That’s what I’ll just continue to do as long as I’m working and as long as I’m being a dad.”
Brady and Bündchen share two children: son Benjamin, 12, and daughter Vivian, 9. Jack, the NFL’s star, is also a son of Bridget Moynahan.
