Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady opened up about his decision to unretire and his current commitment levels following his victory in The Match on Wednesday.

Brady revealed that the timing of free agency played a pivotal role in him returning for his 23rd season.

"At this stage, it's like 55% yes and 45% no. It's not 100-0. That's just the reality," Brady said, according to ESPN's Jenna Laine. "It's not that I'm not 100% committed, it's just as soon as I make the commitment to do it, it's like, 'Ugh. All right, here we go.'

"It's like running a marathon. You can't decide two weeks before the marathon, 'Hey, I'm going to start running.'
