Tom Brady is officially retiring from the NFL, this time for good. The multiple-time Super Bowl champion took to Twitter and posted a video making the announcement, here’s some of what he said.
I’ll get to the point right away, I’m retiring for good. I know the process was a pretty big deal last time so when I woke up this morning I figured I’d just press record and let you guys know first. It won’t be long-winded. You only get one super emotional retirement essay and I used mine last year.Via Tom Brady’s Twitter account
Brady then goes on to thank a number of people. He thanked his family, friends, teammates, and competitors before finishing the video by saying he wouldn’t change a thing.
Thank you guys for allowing me to live my absolute dream. I wouldn’t change a thing.Via Tom Brady’s Twitter account
There is no doubt Tom Brady will be a first-ballot Hall of Famer, and his place in Canton will be waiting for him. The longtime member of the New England Patriots won six Super Bowls in New England before signing with the Buccaneers before the 2020 NFL season and then won the Super Bowl with them. He retires today with seven Super Bowl victories, more than any franchise in the NFL. His five Super Bowl MVPs are more than any player in NFL history.
Brady will finish his career with near-untouchable records. His 89,214 regular season passing yards and 649 regular season touchdowns are first all-time. His 13,400 playoff passing yards and 88 playoff touchdowns are also first all-time, good luck to anyone trying to break those records.
Hats off to a special career.
