Tom Brady Retires “For Good” 

Yesterday morning, Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady (he/him) took to Instagram with some big news. After 23 seasons in the National Football League, the 45-year-old is retiring. 

 

This isn’t the first time the “G.O.A.T.” has called it quits on playing football. Exactly one year prior, the California native announced his retirement on his Instagram, before coming out of retirement about a month later to continue his career. This time he’s retiring “for good,” though, Brady said via Instagram.

 

A sixth-round draft pick in the 2000 NFL Draft, Brady has done what no other has come close to: 7 Super Bowl Championships, 5 Super Bowl MVP Awards, All-Time Passing Yards  (89,214 yards) and Passing Touchdown Leader (649), 15 Pro Bowls and Most Regular Season Wins (251)  to name a few. 

 

Making headlines since becoming the New England Patriots starting quarterback in 2001 over veteran Drew Bledsoe (he/him), Brady spent the majority of his career with New England before signing with the Buccaneers as a free agent in 2020. He spent the rest of his career In Tampa, winning a Super Bowl with them in 2021. 

 

Brady’s career is unparalleled by anything the NFL has ever seen or will probably ever see. He defined generations, and his accomplishments will likely never be replicated, even by the best of the best. He is invariably and unequivocally the Greatest of All Time.
