Everyone should keep asking Tom Brady about his NFL future because his responses are getting funnier by the day.
The 45-year-old signal-caller seemed to be intentionally vague when speaking with reporters following the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ wild-card loss to the Dallas Cowboys. In the days since, Brady has continued to dodge questions while allowing the NFL world to speculate about his future.
That has all been fine for Brady, but a line of some sort seemed to be crossed when Jim Gray asked the seven-time Super Bowl champipn about his future on the latest episode of their podcast, “Let’s Go!”
Here’s the short conversation between the two:
Gray: “Tom, you’re leaving everybody guessing. You’ve said you’ll take your time. Do you have any type of a timetable as to what you might want to do regarding your football career?”
Brady: “Jim, If I knew what I was going to (expletive) do, I would have already (expletive) done it. Okay? I’m taking it one day at a time.”
Gray: “I sense you’re antagonized by the question.”
Brady: “You’re scratching.”
Gray: “It’s only the question everybody is asking.”
Brady: “You’re scratching. I appreciate you asking. Thank you.”

While Brady could have been a tad nicer to Gray, the future Hall of Famer has been consistent with his answers to that very question. He is not ready to make a decision quite yet, and will certainly have some sort of Instagram post for everyone when he does.
Until then, speculation will continue as to what he ends up deciding to do. Brady could retire for the second time in as many offseasons or he could return to Tampa Bay where he’s spent the last three seasons. Oh yeah, there’s also the free-agency route, in which the Patriots have become a popular destination for prognosticators.
