Brady, at the age of 45, first declared retirement a year ago, but then changed his mind after 6 weeks, stating he had “unfinished business.” He earned 6 Super Bowl victories with the New England Patriots and added another win with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2021.
Sadly, his last season ended with the Buccaneers’ 31-14 playoff loss last month. He chose to tweet a personal video on Twitter to share the news with his followers.
In a video, that he tweeted while ago, Brady said that, “
‘Good morning guys. I’ll get to the point right away. I’m retiring. For good. 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.
Thank you guys so much to every single one of you for supporting me. 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.
