Last year when Tom Brady announced he was retiring, the NFL world was sad to see arguably the best quarterback leave the game.
But a few weeks later, he stated he had changed his mind despite his emotional farewell. Fans are back in the same boat today after the Tampa Bay QB once again shared, he was leaving the field – for real this time. Brady thanked his family, friends, teammates, and coaches in his retirement speech.
“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,” Brady said in a Twitter video. “I won’t be long-winded. You only get one super emotional retirement essay, and I used mine up last year, so really thank you guys so much to every single one of you for supporting me.”
Brady played for 23 years in the league. During his time in the year, he won seven Super Bowls — including his last one in Tampa — and set numerous records.
“Tom’s impact will be felt within our community for many years to come and we will forever be grateful for those unforgettable memories that he provided during these final seasons of his legendary career,” the Glazer family – who own the Buccaneers – said in a statement.
Final Chapter for Tom Brady
Just like his video, the final chapter of Brady’s ended very simply in just three words: Tom Brady retires. Tom Brady is one of a kind.
