Now It's Official: Tom Brady Announces His Retirement from Football
There was confusion over the weekend, but the GOAT made it official. Tom Brady has retired from football. The Super Bowl-winning quarterback from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers who once played for the New England Patriots (hi Rob Eno) has called it quits on his Hall of Fame-worthy career.
Brady made it official on Twitter, saying, "I am not going to make that competitive commitment anymore. I have loved my NFL career, and now it is time to focus my time and energy on other things that require my attention.” He also added, “it’s best that I leave the field of play to the next generation.”
Brady was somewhat of a polarizing figure. Liberals hated him because he supported Trump and had opinions with which they disagreed. Rival teams hated him because he spent his entire career making them look bad. And New York Jets fans hated him just because they needed someone to hate other than themselves.
There was some drama over the weekend where it was reported he retired, but forgot to tell the team. Then he said he was still thinking about it. Then today, he decided it was time to walk away, leaving behind a career of unmatched success and records that won't be broken for some time.
It's remarkable that Brady, Ben Roethlisberger, and (maybe) Aaron Rodgers are all stepping away the year Patrick Mahomes, Josh Allen, and Joe Burrows stepped up as the heirs to their thrones. You couldn't write a better story than that.
