After one of the most frustrating and disappointing seasons of Tom Brady's career ended with a first-round playoff loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Monday, people are wondering if the legendary quarterback will retire for real this time.

One player who thinks he should is Buffalo Bills safety Jordan Poyer, who urged Brady to hang up his cleats on his podcast this week.

Poyer, who's been in the league since 2013 and played in the same division as Brady from 2017-2019, understands the grind of the NFL. He also knows Brady fairly well, and thinks it's in his best interest to call it a career and spend more time with his family.

After 23 years in the NFL, Brady has nothing left to prove or accomplish. He's already won seven Super Bowls, three MVP awards and set countless records. He could have retired a decade ago and still would've been a first-ballot Hall of Famer.

Unfortunately, it seems the 45-year-old doesn't know how or when to step away. He briefly retired last offseason, only to come back for another season. This decision apparently cost him his marriage, as he and Gisele Bundchen divorced in October after being married for 13 years.

After how poorly this season played out, many expect Brady to come back for at least one more season with a different team in an effort to end his career on a high note. After a storybook career, Brady seemingly wants a storybook ending.

And if he doesn't get it, he just may end up playing forever.
