After destroying his marriage and family to play one more season in the NFL, only to lead his team to a below .500 winning percentage, Tom Brady has decided to retire from the NFL for good.
His 23-year career is finally coming to an end. He announced the news on his social media accounts on Wednesday, noting he wouldn’t change a thing about his career.
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. 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.
He reportedly informed the Bucs of his decision at six in the morning on Wednesday. Even though his last season was filled with off-the-field drama, Brady was one of the best quarterbacks the game has ever seen throughout his career. He won a total of seven Super Bowls and set multiple records along the way. He will go down as a legend.
In his video message, he also thanked his family.
My family, my friends, my teammates, my competitors, I could go on forever, there’s too many. Thank you guys for allowing me to live my absolute dream. I wouldn’t change a thing. Love you all.
He’ll probably never admit it, but you have to imagine he would take back this last season if he could. Not only did playing one more season ruin his marriage, it also didn’t do anything for his legacy. He didn’t exactly have the best season and his personal life was turned into one big joke.
But hey, he claims to have no regrets. Both David Beckham and Serena Williams commented on the post. Serena knows how it feels to retire as a legend, so she was a little emotional.
She wrote: “I’m getting teary eyed watching this. Sad to see you go. Welcome to the retirement world…. Again.”
We’ll see if this retirement sticks.
