Tom Brady is Retiring! He Says – This Time It’s For Good!
Tom Brady has announced that he is retiring into retirement. As he himself said – this time for real.
“Good morning everyone, I’ll get right to the point.
I’m retiring. For good.
I know last time it caused a lot of commotion and when I woke up this morning I thought – I’ll just hit the record button and tell you first.
You only get to go into retirement with so much emotion once, and I used mine up last year.
Thank you all very much. Each and every one of you. My family, my friends, my teammates, my rivals. I could list them forever.
Thank you for allowing me to live my dream. I wouldn’t change a single thing.
I love you all,” Brady said in a video message.
After 23 incredible seasons, seven championship titles and three MVP awards, five Super Bowl MVP awards, numerous records set and broken, one era has come to an end.
In 23 years Brady played 365 games, from a player that almost nobody noticed in the draft, to a legend.
In high school, the eternal reserve, the first pass in the University of Michigan where he was also a reserve was cut, he was thinking of changing teams after two seasons, but Lloyd Carr had only one thing to say about it – ‘if you go, you will regret it all your life’.
And he stayed to fight. The first quarterback became only in the second half of the college graduation year. In the 2000 draft, he went as someone the teams thought had no bright future.
The New England Patriots skipped him in the third round of the draft, but he was still available in the sixth, as 199th. The Patriots chose him, even though they had three quarterbacks available, including Drew Bledsoe.
When he first met team owner Robert Kraft, he bravely introduced himself as “the best decision his franchise ever made”.
In March 2020, he replaced the Patriots jersey with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers jersey, and a year later he won the Super Bowl with them.
NFL records mostly have his name – the most thrown yards – 84,520, the most touchdown passes 624. He is the only player to have won the Super Bowl more than five times and to have been MVP of the last game of the season more than once.
Tom Brady is the greatest legend in NFL history.
