Profane Tom Brady explains he’s still undecided on ’23

Retirement isn’t the only dirty word Tom Brady is kicking around while contemplating his plans for 2023.

On his “Let’s Go” podcast with Sirius/XM Radio, Brady went with blue material in response to Jim Gray’s question about his timeline for a decision about whether to play next season.

“Jim, if I knew what I was going to (expletive) do, I would’ve already (expletive) done it. I’m taking it a day at a time,” Brady said.

And when Gray asked if he was “antagonized by the question,” Brady said “You’re scratchy. You’re scratchy. I appreciate you asking. Thank you.”

Brady is an unrestricted free agent and big changes are afoot with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who fired offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich one year after making a head-coaching change. Brady turns 46 in August but set a record for passing attempts and total seasons with 25-plus touchdown passes in 2022 at age 45.

He retired briefly last February, only to return to the team while going through a divorce from world-famous model wife Gisele Bundchen.

Gray also asked Brady about receiving a fine letter from the NFL last week for a failed attempt to trip Cowboys safety Malik Hooker following an interception in the wild-card loss to Dallas.

“I tried to trip him, but I didn’t. I don’t know how you can get fined for something that didn’t even happen. Are they fining an intention? It’s like targeting, and you miss the person you hit, and they still call it targeting. I’ve gotta figure out and understand why this is the case. It’s a little odd. This is why I wish our NFLPA was stronger.”

Several teams are in the market for a quarterback.

The New York Jets are operating on orders from owner Woody Johnson to find the “missing piece,” which he defined as a veteran quarterback. Brady just completed his 23rd NFL season, 20 of them with the Jets’ AFC East rival New England Patriots.

Brady’s former New England offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels is head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders, where quarterback Derek Carr is on the trade block.

The Carolina Panthers and Indianapolis Colts, recent constants on the offseason QB carousel, are back for another spin this spring, as are the Houston Texans.
