The quarterback, who has sparked speculation he may retire for a second time after a disastrous season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. wore a black tee and cream joggers as he posed up.
He and Beckham have been friends for more than a decade with their families frequently spending time together.
YThis comes after Brady made it explicitly clear earlier this week that no decision has been made on whether he will retire for a second time, during a testy rant on his Let’s Go! podcast.
Co-host Jim Gray asked him: ‘Do you have any timetable as to what you want to do regarding your football career?’
To which Brady emphatically answered: ‘Jim, if I knew what I was going to f***ing do, I would’ve already f***ing done it. Ok? I’m taking it a day at a time.’

Brady and Gisele Bundchen announced their divorce on October 28 after weeks of speculation.
Brady and Bundchen ended their marriage after 13 years with many believing that the quarterback re-entering the NFL became a bone of contention for the Brazilian supermodel.
A source confirmed to DailyMail.com in late-September that their physical separation was not impacted by Brady’s move to rejoin his beloved sport.
Both said they would continue to co-parent their two children together. The couple share custody of their two children, Vivian and Benjamin, 13. Tom also has a third son, 15-year-old son Jack with ex Bridget Moynahan.
The Bucs star said the divorce had been a ‘difficult’ and ‘painful’ decision that the pair reached after ‘much consideration’.
Gisele is now at the center of swirling romance rumors with her hunky jiu-jitsu instructor Joaquim Valente – following multiple trips to Costa Rica together.

A source recently told People that ‘Gisele adores and trusts [Joaquim] and has been spending a lot of time with him’ but the duo are not in a ‘traditional dating scenario.’
The conjecture about Gisele and Joaquim comes after the supermodel finalized her divorce from NFL icon Tom Brady, whom she reportedly split from over his refusal to quit the sport.
Now an insider has spilled that Gisele and Joaquim ‘have a deep personal relationship, and he is a teacher to her and the kids. Whether or not it will ever become more than that rests on the table.’
Another source declared Gisele was ‘happy and doing really well’ but was ‘focused on her kids, her health and work.’
Gisele and Joaquim were spotted together in Costa Rica last week just days before Tom’s Tampa Bay team’s disastrous 31-14 loss to the Cowboys on Monday – with the sportsman refusing to rule out retirement for a second time.
The pair were first spotted in the country last month alongside her two children with Brady which quickly sparked romance rumors between the pair.
However, a source close to Gisele furiously denied that they’re in a relationship, insisting that the date was anything but romantic – and noting that Joaquim is nothing more than a close family friend.

‘He’s been her kids’ jiu-jitsu teacher for years,’ the insider revealed. ‘There’s no truth to the rumors that they’re dating.’
Page Six was the first to report that Gisele and Joaquim were an item, sharing photos from their night out on Saturday and branding Joaquim as her ‘new man.’
The New York Post also called Joaquim her ‘new squeeze’ and ‘rebound following the divorce.’
Gisele and Joaquim appear to go way back, and they even participated in a photoshoot for Dust Magazine together alongside Joaquim’s brothers, Pedro and Giu Valente, last year.
Brady first retired in January 2022 while he was with the New England Patriots, but stayed away for a mere 40 days before announcing he would return to the Buccaneers for the 2022 season.
Someone familiar with the quarterback dished: ‘When he’s in the middle of a season, [Brady] does what most NFL players do: live, breathe, eat and sleep football,’ adding: ‘Tom is more like that than anyone.’
Another source countered: ‘He was always there for her and the kids. Even during football.

‘He’s an anomaly because he’s played for so long. Yes, he worked just like any parent worked, but he always spends a great deal of time with his family.’
Brady ducked questions on free agency and what the future holds for him on Monday, choosing to end his post-game media duties with a monologue praising reporters in the room.
‘I just want to say thank you guys for everything this year. I really appreciate all your effort,’ Brady said, following Tampa Bay’s 31-14 loss to the Cowboys.
Brady didn’t seem ready to reveal what’s next for him in the post-game press conference.
‘I’m going to go home and get a good night’s sleep,’ Brady responded when asked about his future.
‘Or as good as I can tonight… This has been a lot of focus on this game, so it’ll just be one day at a time, truly.’
Brady ended his press conference with some positive parting words for the Buccaneers team and the media.
‘I love this organization. It’s a great place to be. Thank you everybody for welcoming me. Just very grateful for the respect and I hope I gave it back to you guys,’ Brady said.
A source told People magazine that Tom ‘wasn’t as attentive as he should’ve been’ to Gisele before the split. They are pictured in September 2016
After falling in last year’s NFC Divisional round to the eventual Super Bowl champions Los Angeles Rams, Brady announced he was retiring from the sport.
He then made the shocking decision to come out of retirement in early March of 2022 and returned to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
‘And I know it’s hard for you guys, too. It’s hard for us players to make it through, and you guys got a tough job. And I appreciate all that you guys do to cover us and everyone who watches and is a big fan of the sport.’
He continued: ‘We’re very grateful for everyone’s support.’
Brady came back to the team, but failed to replicate last season’s 13-4 mark that saw them get the second seed in the 2021 NFL playoffs.
This season, behind a roughshod offensive line, the Buccaneers limped to an NFC South title with an 8-9 record – the first nine loss season of Brady’s career.
It was a season with a lot of trials and tribulations for Brady – both on the field, with shaky performances, and off the field as he went through the divorce.
In a statement posted to Instagram, the athlete called his and Gisele’s decision to end their relationship ‘painful,’ but vowed to put their kids first so that they ‘receive the love and attention they deserve.’
‘In recent days, my wife and I finalized our divorce from one another after 13 years of marriage,’ he wrote. ‘We arrived at this decision amicably and with gratitude for the time we spent together.

‘We are blessed with beautiful and wonderful children who will continue to be the center of our world in every way.
‘We will continue to work together as parents to always ensure they receive the love and attention they deserve.
‘We arrived at this decision to end our marriage after much consideration. Doing so is, of course, painful and difficult like it is for many people who go through the same thing every day around the world.
‘However, we wish only the best for each other as we pursue whatever new chapters in our lives that are yet to be written.’
Gisele added in a post of her own: ‘My priority has always been and will continue to be our children whom I love with all my heart.
‘We will continue co-parenting to give them the love, care, and attention they greatly deserve.
‘The decision to end a marriage is never easy, but we have grown apart. It is, of course, difficult to go through something like this.’
The supermodel concluded by stating that she ‘wished’ her ex ‘the best,’ and said she was ‘blessed’ for the ‘time they had together.’
According to Page Six, an ‘ironclad prenup’ allowed the couple – who have an estimated combined net worth of $733million – to quickly settle their divorce.
‘They both have their own separate business entities, so the separation of their wealth wasn’t that complicated in the end,’ a source told them. ‘The only other major factor was dividing up their massive property portfolio.’
It was claimed that the NFL legend – who is said to be worth approximately $333million – would gain full ownership of the former couple’s $17million mansion in Miami’s Indian Creek Island, which is often referred to as ‘Billionaire Bunker.’
Tom and Gisele snapped up the waterfront property in 2020 before demolishing it and beginning construction on their dream home, which is still underway.
As for Gisele – who is considered the highest paid supermodel in the world with an estimated $400million net worth – sources claimed that she would keep their vacation home on the Nicoya Peninsula in Costa Rica.
She quietly purchased a modest $1.25million Miami Beach home in February and has reportedly purchased a larger property also in the Miami area. They are expected to share custody of their two children.
