Tom Brady makes joke about retirement after seeing Rams’ Aaron Donald

It turns out the Los Angeles Rams nearly forced Tom Brady into a second retirement announcement in 2022.

At least Aaron Donald almost did, after Brady’s revelation.

The seven-time Super Bowl winner, whose Tampa Bay Buccaneers were dramatically eliminated by the Rams in a final second field goal 30-27 on Jan. 23, went on The Dan Patrick Show on Wednesday, June 15, to tell what a Rams superstar is like jokingly made the NFL legend retire again.

Brady spoke to the longtime radio and media personality about how he avoids pass rushers as a 45-year-old playing in the league.

While Brady said to Patrick, “I’m out here with a lot of young guys trying to take my head off,” there was one Rams player he joked as almost made him reconsider after winning one had seen the highlight on his Instagram page: Donald.

“I see Aaron Donald working out on my Instagram and I’m like, ‘Damn, maybe I should have retired,'” Brady said. “Because he’s a beast.”

Brady did not specify which workout video sparked the comment. Especially considering the number of workout videos Donald has shared online. However, Donald is known for performing workouts considered uncommon for defenders — notably this sprint workout with a parachute shared by his speed training group 210th on the morning of June 16.

There’s also this high-intensity workout that involves Donald’s core.

As it was, Donald was identifiable with Brady in that regard: He, too, had thoughts of retirement, which he first shared with NBC Sports’ Rodney Harrison during the pregame show leading up to Super Bowl 56.

After winning his first-ever Super Bowl, Donald was asked if the big game would be his last…which he didn’t answer at the time.

Now Donald has signed a $95 million deal that makes him the highest-paid non-quarterback in NFL history.

Donald and Brady have competed five times in their careers.

“AD” struggled early on against Brady-led teams. When Brady was with the New England Patriots, Donald went 2-0 to them: The 26-10 loss on December 4, 2016 and Super Bowl 53 on February 3, 2019.

Donald never got a bag of Brady while he was in the Pats uniform. He combined eight tackles and three solo stops in both losses.

But since Brady donned the colors of the Bucs, Donald and the Rams have had the upper hand.

Donald and LA have had the last three victories over Brady and the Bucs – with two of their victories being decided by three points. And Donald got his hands on Brady with two sacks in the last two games against Tampa. Donald has also accumulated eight combined tackles and five solo stops in those wins, as well as three tackles from behind the line of scrimmage.

However, Brady hasn’t stayed in retirement even after Donald’s training session, saying his “appetite” for football stayed with him.

“I had an appetite to compete,” Brady told Patrick.

Brady and Tampa will host the Rams on November 6th in the re-run of this epic NFC divisional round competition.
