Tom Brady was only retired for 5 1/2 weeks before he decided he was over it.

Brady announced his return to the NFL on Sunday evening, directly after Selection Sunday aired on CBS for the NCAA Tournament.

Before announcing his decision, Brady told center Ryan Jensen that he was returning via a phone call, per ESPN’s Jenna Laine. That sped up contract talks between Jensen and the Bucs as he will also be back for next season.

“I’m gonna give you an example of how Brady has already gotten to work on trying to keep this roster intact,” Laine said on SportsCenter. “Free agency kicks off today with the legal tampering period and before Brady even made his announcement to the world, I’m told he got on the phone and he called his center, Ryan Jensen.

When Fayetteville Fury goalkeeper Kenneth Perkinson heaved a pass to Nate Brady across midfield during Saturday’s indoor soccer match at the Crown, he didn’t expect to get an assist out of it. 

But he wasn’t completely surprised, either.

“Nate loves the spectacular,” Perkinson said of his teammate. “If he has a one-on-one, if he has a volley, he’s going to take it every time.”

Brady caught Perkinson’s toss off the bounce on his right foot and it didn’t hit the field again until it was behind the goal line.
