The first time Tom Brady retired, it only lasted 40 days. In February, the NFL legend retired "for good," and it seems he is sticking with his word.
When Aaron Rodgers ruptured his Achilles in just his fourth play as a New York Jet quarterback, speculation immediately began that the team could give the seven-time Super Bowl-winning Brady a call.
It's unknown if that ever happened, but if it did, he has made it seem pretty clear it's not an option.

On Brady's "Let's Go!" podcast, co-host Jim Gray asked him straight up if the team called him. Hardly before Gray even finished the question, Brady wasn't having it.
