In his 23-year-long NFL career, Tom Brady recently completed one of the most challenging seasons. According to a new report, the quarterback, who recently divorced Gisele Bündchen and had trouble maintaining a high level of play throughout the season, now shed 15 pounds. Brady’s statistics before the weight loss showed him to be 6-foot-4 and 225 pounds, which experts deem to be an “ideal weight” for his height.
Despite having a losing record at the end of the regular season, the 7 Time Super Bowl Champion still managed to win the NFC South and a place in the NFL playoffs.
Even after this “success,” Tom Brady had a different season than usual, and many people questioned whether his decline was due to his age or his personal problems. According to ESPN’s reporter Jeff Darlington, Brady likely needs some time to recover before deciding what to do with his life, whether it be to continue playing football or accept a position as a Fox Sports analyst.

Tom Brady’s Divorce took an intense physical toll on him
Don’t think for a second that Tom Brady was unaffected by his divorce from Gisele Bündchen despite the fact that it was his decision to return to the NFL. The athlete’s personal life had an effect on his physical and mental health throughout the football season, according to an ESPN NFL sports journalist, Jeff Darlington. Darlington, who shared the information on Twitter, claimed that the 45-year-old quarterback lost a sizable amount of weight on his typical 225-pound frame.
He further summarized Brady’s 2022–2023 campaign in a video clip, saying, “But Brady also knows his own mental focus was gone for a bulk of the season. His physical stature, faced with 15 pounds of weight loss, was also in peril.”
The 7 Time Super Bowl Champian and his ex-wife Gisele Bundchen garnered a huge number of media attention last year as their 13-year marriage came to an end.

What Tom Brady would do next?
This offseason, Tom Brady is expected to become a free agent, and speculation about what he will do next is ongoing. Many predict that he will retire, but other predictions include him leaving the Tampa Bay Buccaneers or signing with another team. When Jim Gray questioned Brady about his future plans, the quarterback responded angrily that if he knew what he was going to do, he would’ve done it already.
Brady believed that “his preseason anguish ended his chances at success before the regular season had even started,” according to Jeff Darlington. The public was aware that something wrong was going on with Brady when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers player missed 11 days of preseason workouts in August.
His media press conference was also very revealing. Brady claimed that everyone faces different challenges in life. “I’m 45 years old, man. There’s a lot of s**t going on, so you just have to try and figure out life the best you can. You know, it’s a continuous process.”

The source claimed that Gisele Bundchen made fun of Brady’s play after his team lost to the Dallas Cowboys. She already informed him that “He’s too old to play anymore,” and this was the only reason she dumped him as he chose to return for another season.
