Former NFL superstar Tom Brady said Thursday he would consider coming out of retirement if he was approached by a team needing a quarterback in the event of an injury crisis.

Speaking on the “Deep Cut” podcast, the former New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers star said he would entertain the idea if called on.

“I’m not opposed to it,” Brady said when asked if he would pick up the phone if called by a team.
