Shannon Sharpe Addresses Tom Brady Retirement: All Of His Decisions Were Rushed

Shannon Sharpe says that Tom Brady's decision to retire was not well thought through.

"I'm surprised by the duration of his retirement," Sharpe said. "It seems to me that both of these decisions were rushed, had he taken more time, we wouldn't be in this situation. Tom isn't ready to let the attention go."

Brady announced his retirement weeks ago: "This is difficult for me to write, but here it goes: I am not going to make that competitive commitment anymore. I have loved my NFL career, and now it is time to focus my time and energy on other things that require my attention. I've done a lot of reflecting the past week and have asked myself difficult questions. And I am so proud of what we have achieved. My teammates, coaches, fellow competitors, and fans deserve 100% of me, but right now, it's best I leave the field of play to the next generation of dedicated and committed athletes," he wrote.

But Brady has changed his mind and will continue his career with the Bucs.
