Tom Brady is reacting to people floating theories that he might retire mid-season.
During an appearance on Pro Football Talk Live, former NFL QB Chris Simms suggested that Brady could retire mid-season.

“Normally I’d feel like it’s Rodgers that would be that guy. But because of this year and some of the off-the-field stuff that’s hitting home and personal stuff with Brady, this is the one year I feel maybe it might be Brady,” said Simms.
“It seems like, and I don’t know this, that his wife is threatening divorce or going down that road by all due accounts of what you read.
“I think Rodgers is usually the guy to be more renegade and be like ‘screw this, I’m out of here.’ But this is a weird year where we’re seeing Brady do weird crap and having personal issues.”
Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio agreed with Simms.
“I have thought all along there’s a chance Brady checks out during the season and I still think that happens.”
Brady was asked about Simms’ theory during the Bucs press conference on Thursday and here is how he answered.
"No retirement in my future." 😁
