Not that fans or the Buccaneers should’ve spent much time hoping for a Tom Brady return before this point, but the long odds just became even longer.

Tom Brady is almost assuredly done with the Buccaneers. Tampa fans know to never say never, but taking this pessimistic but logical view on the future will at least keep everyone from getting hurt again.

The Bucs have already begun looking into new options from across the league and from their own franchise, and the only people that really think Brady is coming back are the ones that think he wants to play with the 49ers.

Anyone who has seen the Trey Lance tape over the past few days can see why it is such a ludicrous idea that the Niners would have anyone else under center next year.

Either way, while we already knew that all the signs pointed to Brady staying retired, the recent news regarding Brady’s involvement in an upcoming film should be enough to put the nails in the coffin for that dream.

Now, this is not the first time that an athlete has done something like this, but a football player doing it during their career would be strange.

Football requires a different level of militant control over one’s personal time. We all saw this on display last season after the Bucs won the Super Bowl and Brady was ready to start working towards 2021 the next day.

While Brady will obviously still spend time taking care of himself, that is a very different reality than staying in football shape to make a run at a return.

Taking any time off and then coming back to the sport cold is dangerous, and this danger is only highlighted by Brady’s age.

We all know that anything is possible with Tom Brady, but it might be time to finally reel in this expectations on who the starting QB will be for the Buccaneers this fall.
