It's been two days since Adam Schefter and Jeff Darlington's bombshell report that Tom Brady is retiring this offseason. And today the GOAT is apparently going to address it.

According to Alex Weprin of The Hollywood Reporter, Brady is going to appear on SiriusXM tonight with longtime friend Jim Gray, and Larry Fitzgerald. It will be his first public comments since the retirement report.

There are a lot of theories floating around about what this sitdown with Gray means. On one hand, Jim Gray has always been Brady's go-to guy whenever he has a big announcement to make about his career.

On the other hand, an announcement as big as this feels like it would come from Brady through social media first. And there hasn't been anything on Twitter or Instagram to suggest he's even mulling it over.

As you can imagine, NFL fans are also torn on what tonight's big sitdown means:

If Tom Brady announces that he isn't retiring, then Schefter and Darlington will have a lot to answer for.

Schefter doubled-down on his reporting of Brady's imminent retirement over the weekend. His reputation will take a massive hit if Brady completely refutes the report.

But if Brady is retiring, then tonight might go down as a date to remember in the annals of NFL history.

What do you think? Is Brady going to announce his retirement tonight?
