Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady says he felt pressure to end retirement due to free agency

TAMPA, Fla. - Speaking publicly for the first time since ending his retirement after 40 days, Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady said Wednesday that he felt pressure to end his retirement due to free agency, and that his key reasons for his indecision stemmed from commitments to his family.

"At this stage, it's like 55% yes and 45% no. It's not 100-0. That's just the reality," Brady said in a roundtable that aired on TNT following Capital One's The Match golf outing with Aaron Rodgers, Patrick Mahomes and Josh Allen.
