On Friday night, CBS Sports insider Jason La Canfora reported that Tom Brady is reportedly close to making a decision on his future.

According to the report, Brady is "preparing to retire" from the NFL. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback reportedly plans to announce his decision within the next few days.

"Numerous sources close to Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady remain convinced that the all-time great is preparing to retire from the game, with a formal announcement expected shortly," La Canfora reported on Friday night.

Fans aren't ready to believe that Brady is walking away from the game. After years of retirement rumors, the latest rumors somehow seem more accurate than ever.

"Is...this about to happen?" one fan asked.

If this is the end for Brady, Buccaneers fans are just thankful for the Super Bowl victory and another playoff run. "Well, if this happens the 2 years we’re simply glorious," one fan said.

Longtime Brady fans aren't ready to see him walk away just yet.

"I’m not mentally prepared for this to happen…please, just one more year," another fan said.

Brady has nothing left to accomplish in the NFL. After winning six Super Bowl titles with the New England Patriots, he proved he could win elsewhere as well.

He put the "was it Brady or Bill Belichick" question to bed when he won a Super Bowl in his first season with the Buccaneers.

After 22 years in the NFL, is Brady ready to call it quits?
