The big question in football right now: What will Tom Brady do next? The Tampa Bay Buccaneers ended their season with a 31-14 loss to the Dallas Cowboys last week. Now, people are wondering if Brady will leave the Bucs, join another team or retire – again.

In the Moment’s David Greene spoke to Buccaneers Center Ryan Jensen about what it’s like to protect Tom Brady on the field. And he spoke to him about what led Brady to retire, then unretire last year. Jensen said Brady’s decision to come back to the game came down to one very simple thing. 

“Is this how the greatest quarterback of all time is gonna go out?,” Jensen said. “Personally, I didn't see him going out that way.”

But will that championship spirit keep Brady in the NFL this time around?
