The season officially ended for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday as they fell to the Los Angeles Rams in the divisional round. And with that, it’s time to turn the page to one of the biggest questions of the offseason: Will Tom Brady retire?
It’s a question that, naturally, has fueled the rumor mill in recent weeks. But after Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians bluntly addressed it in his postgame press conference and Brady offered a typical non-answer, did the official Twitter account of TB12 Sports offer some insight?
“You win or you learn.
“There are no failures, only lessons. When you fall you need to pick yourself up with greater enthusiasm than you went down. Now we look back on an incredible season, learn our lessons, and get up… because even greater things are coming.
It seems this post could go either way. The caption seems to hint at another season for the signal-caller, especially with the hashtag — which the brand adopted in the third quarter as the Buccaneers began to build their eventually unsuccessful comeback. But the black and white photo certainly is emotional, to say the least.
It’s probably not worth reading into this tweet too much. Instead, just like the past few offseasons, it’s probably more worth preparing for a long few months of rumors before a decision is made.
