LAS VEGAS (KSNV) — Tom Brady is trying to put to bed any talk about another comeback.
Speaking with Sports Illustrated's Robin Lundberg, Brady was asked to give a message to anyone who is "constantly concocting a way for you to come back."
I'm certain I'm not playing again," the seven-time Super Bowl champion responded. "So I've tried to make that clear, and I hate to continue to profess that 'cause I've already told people that lots of times."
Brady is in the process of purchasing a small stake in the Las Vegas Raiders. TMZ reported Wednesday that it's possible for him to both serve as an owner and play for the Silver & Black.
But Brady says he's focused on the next phase of career, which includes broadcasting with Fox Sports.
The superstar announced his retirement in February after a 23-year career in the NFL with the New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He first said he would retire a year ago, but he reversed course and chose to return to Tampa for the 2022 season.
His purchase of a minority interest is awaiting approval from NFL owners. He also recently bought a stake in the WNBA's Las Vegas Aces, which is controlled by Raiders owner Mark Davis.
