Patriots QB Tom Brady hints return to football next season in Instagram post

It's far from a done deal, but a social media post Wednesday morning on Instagram seems to indicate Tom Brady wants to return to the Patriots next season.

After a devastating end to the season, including a pick-six on Brady’s final throw, the Patriots bowed out of the NFL playoffs in the unfamiliar wild-card round over the weekend, losing to the Tennessee Titans.

There has been plenty of speculation about what Brady's next move will be -- whether it's retirement, a move to a new team, or to remain with the Patriots -- but nothing definitive has been said about the quarterback's plans, WFXT reported.

But the Instagram post thanked Patriots fans and the entire Kraft organization at Gillette Stadium saying, "You dont always win. You can, however, learn from that failure, pick yourself up with great enthusiasm, and place yourself in the arena again. And that's right where you will find me. Because I know I still have more to prove."

It’s vague, but it seems like a strong indication Brady isn’t finished with football.
