Tom Brady, considered by many as the greatest quarterback of all time, will be returning to Foxboro for the first time in two years when the New England Patriots host their home opener in 2023.

Brady will make his return to the stadium he called home for nearly two decades, and it will only be his second time back since he left the Patriots for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after the 2019 season.

His last appearance at Foxboro was on October 3, 2021, when his Buccaneers defeated his former team 19-17 in Week 4.

The seven-time Super Bowl champion announced his second retirement from the NFL on February 1, which was the one-year anniversary of his first retirement.

This time, it appears that his retirement is more permanent, as he has attempted to put to rest rumors of a second “unretirement” that have been circulating throughout the offseason.

According to Patriots owner Robert Kraft, the September event will be the “beginning of many celebrations to honor” the quarterback who brought the team six Super Bowl championships.

With Brady’s return to Foxboro, fans will undoubtedly be eager to see the veteran quarterback take the field once again.
