On Thursday of Super Bowl week, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady tweeted out a cryptic picture, making some around the league believe that he could be calling it a career.
However, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo has said that Brady's tweet is a teaser for a commercial that will air during Super Bowl LIV on Sunday.
"Meanwhile, we had that tweet the other day from Tom Brady, that ambiguous tweet," Garafolo said. "You (Rapoport) and I are reporting that the mystery is going to solved today, sort of. That was a teaser for a Super Bowl commercial that will air during the game. Is he walking away, is he walking toward, I don't know."

His rertirement is unlikley, as Brady hinted at returning for another season of football after the Patriots' season came to an end.
"Beacuse I know I still have more to prove," Brady wrote in an Instagram post.
