David Beckham trains with LA Galaxy on Tuesday, is probably not making comeback as a player | SIDELINE

Don't call it a comeback... because, well, it's not.

But David Beckham was back to kicking around and going through the paces with his now-former LA Galaxy teammates on Tuesday. At least, we're about 99 percent sure that it was Beckham. It could possibly have been Michael Jordan, since he's wearing No. 23. But probably not. Can't say for sure, though, since the Galaxy didn't exactly come right out and say it.

Beckham unexpectedly announced his retirement back in May following a short stint with Paris Saint-Germain, which came after six seasons with the Galaxy. Since then, there have been many rumors about Beckham potentially exercising a clause in his player contract to purchase an MLS franchise at a discounted rate.

Reitred or not, 38 years old or not, he's still David Beckham. So there's bound to be some speculation that he's about to sign for the Galaxy's late-season run to the playoffs.

Right? Right????

UPDATE: Beckham definitely in the house.
