Tom Brady will return to football next season, the future Hall of Fame quarterback said after the New England Patriots 41-33 Super Bowl loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

Brady, 40, reiterated after the game, where he passed for a Super Bowl record 505 yards, that he planned on returning as the Patriots quarterback, ESPN reported.

"I expect to be back, but we'll see," said Brady, who was named the NFL's most valuable player on Saturday. "It's 15 minutes after the game ended. Have to process this a little bit. Don't see why I wouldn't be back."

Because of his age, retirement has been a constant question among reporters during Super Bowl week. On Westwood One Radio, Brady confirmed his return after the game started, per the Boston Herald.

"Yeah, you're going to see me playing football next year," Brady told Westwood One, per the Boston Herald. "I don't envision not playing. You're at the end of the race, but you've got your biggest mountain to climb right at the end.

"Hopefully all the lessons we've learned have allowed us to be at our very best for this moment. That's what it's going to take, and that's what we're prepared for. That's what I go out and expect our team to do," Brady continued.

Brady was even more adamant earlier in the week, responding to comment by Patriots team president Jonathan Kraft who said the signal-caller had earned the right to make his own decision of when to retire, ABC News reported.

"Why does everyone want me to retire so bad? I'm having fun, the team is doing good," Brady told reporters, per ABC News. "I know I'm a little bit older than most of the guys, but I'm really enjoying it. ... So I'm not thinking about retirement."

Brady's top receiving target, Rob Gronkowski, 28, though, sounded less sure about retirement after the game, according to ESPN.

"I am definitely going to look at my future for sure," said Gronkowski, who suffered a concussion in the AFC championship game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Pioneer Press reported. "I am going to sit down the next couple weeks and see where I am at.

"I'm going to reflect on the season," he said after leading the Patriots with nine catches for 116 yards and two touchdowns. "Proud of the boys and just see what happens."
