Tom Brady is officially back, and we’re beginning to get reactions from those closest to him.
On Sunday afternoon, Brady shook the NFL world when he revealed that he was returning to the NFL less than two months after he announced his retirement.
These past two months I’ve realized my place is still on the field and not in the stands. That time will come. But it’s not now. I love my teammates, and I love my supportive family. They make it all possible. I’m coming back for my 23rd season in Tampa. Unfinished business LFG pic.twitter.com/U0yhRKVKVm

Tom Brady Sr. also came out and spoke to the media about his son’s return.
Tom Brady Sr. tells me his son felt “pressured by outside forces” to make earlier decision to walk away. Was looking forward to golf with his son but “excited” he’ll play again. Hear more from our conversation on #7News tonight. pic.twitter.com/dkrZtgLFlF

“Upon reflection and spending time with his family and stuff, he’s happy, and we in the family are happy. We’ll be more than happy, we’re all elated, and it’s going to be a wonderful, one more year. He’s said all along ‘I’m going to play until 45,’ but I’m not sure that it’s so much the 45 as he just loves playing football,” Tom Brady Sr. told WBZ-TV’s Steve Burton.
The 7-time Super Bowl champion is 44 years old. He finished second in the MVP voting last season.
“He had a heck of a good year this last year and you know once you give it up you don’t come back, there’s no semi-retirement in football so he can’t coast into retirement and I just don’t think that he was ready. He thinks he can do the job,” Brady, Sr. said.
