Tom Brady has given no indication he’s planning to retire, but he does have a message for his teammates: “You’re not going to be happy,” he said.
“I can barely even say that, and that’s okay.
You can say that about yourself.
I can’t even say it to my teammates.
I’ll do it for you.
I’m going to do it when I can.”
In a message to the NFLPA, the New England Patriots quarterback said, “If you are unhappy with your career, you’re not happy with me.
I want to do this for you.”
Brady has not officially retired, but in a statement released this week, he said he “cannot be happy” when he’s not playing.
“As I look forward to retiring, I feel I can no longer be happy with my career,” he wrote.
The Patriots are expected to open training camp in Jacksonville, Fla., on Sept. 30.
