Tom Brady Teased Future in Another Sport

Retired NFL quarterback Tom Brady teased a jump to sports car racing during a video promoting his team competing at the 100th edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race.

Brady, who is shown sitting behind a steering wheel, said he was told to "put a bunch of hours" on a driving simulator before driving an actual racing car.

"Everyone chill out, it's my first day, alright," Brady joked after struggling to control the vehicle in the driving simulator footage.

Hertz Team JOTA will run a customer Porsche 963 featuring branding from the rental company -- which Brady endorses -- as well as Singer Group and its apparel partner BRADY, an apparel line founded by the seven-time Super Bowl champion. The vehicle will actually be driven by Portugal's Antonio Felix da Costa, Britain's Will Stevens and China's Yifei Ye at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, which will begin on June 10, according to a news release obtained by NBC 15.

Brady's announcement comes days after Radar Online reported that he was planning a career in stand-up comedy, according to sources with knowledge of the situation.

Brady announced he's "retiring for good" after 23 NFL seasons in a video shared on his official social media accounts on February 1. The 45-year-old had previously announced his retirement last offseason before announcing his decision to return several weeks later.

Brady was set to become an unrestricted free agent prior to announcing his retirement earlier this month. The seven-time Super Bowl champion reportedly filed a letter to the National Football League and NFL Players Association reconfirming his retirement decision, on February 10, sources with knowledge of the situation confirmed to ESPN's Adam Schefter at the time.
