Reality hit for Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady, 44, as he watched Los Angeles Rams defensive end star Aaron Donald train.

“I think I’m partly crazy,” Brady said on The Dan Patrick Show on Wednesday, June 15. “I mean, I think that’s the reality. I am [almost] 45 years old and I’m out here with a lot of young guys trying to take my head off. And I see Aaron Donald working out on my Instagram and I’m like, ‘Damn, maybe I should have retired.’ Because he’s a beast.”

“But you know, I had an appetite to compete and it will soon be gone. There is no doubt about it. I really have to appreciate the time I have left because it’s not much.”

Donald helped keep Brady’s appetite fresh as the Rams beat the Bucs 30-27 in the NFC Divisional Round last season. Donald sacked Brady once in that game.

Brady retired on February 1, just nine days after falling against the Rams, but he returned to the Bucs 41 days later on March 13, just before the free hand began.

Despite his seven Super Bowl rings, tons of records and millions of dollars; he couldn’t stop here. When Brady returned, he was negotiating with the person who had publicly expressed an interest in his resignation – his wife Gisele Bundchen.

“We had quite a bit of time together,” Brady told Patrick.

Brady previously told Complex’s Mike Stefano about his conversations with Bundchen and her family. Brady described Bundchen as supportive of a comeback, according to Stefano, since the Bucs front office could only wait for Brady for so long.

“I mostly think when I say to the team, ‘Look, you guys have to make plans without me,’ and then Jason [Licht] and Bruce [Arians] said, ‘Just take your time,’ I said, ‘Look, I’m feeling pretty strong,'” Brady told Patrick.

“And then time went by and then you just got super competitive,” Brady added, per Patrick.

When Brady announced his retirement, he mentioned “unfinished business” regarding the Bucs missing the Super Bowl last season. Things clicked for the Bucs as free agency began with key signings, a trade and solid signings as free agents.

“I’m really looking forward to going out there and trying to compete and win a championship,” Brady told media on June 9.

Brady also spoke to Patrick about his next career in the FOX booth when he finally retires from football.

“There’s a lot of learning curve, of course,” Brady told Patrick. “It’s going to be a whole new career. It’s a new opportunity for me to try something that I will work really hard to prepare to be as good as possible. Knowing that, the day I step onto the set for the first time won’t be my happiest moment. There’s going to be a lot of growing pains and I need to learn to be really good at it, but I also think there’s a part of it that excites me.”
