Tom Brady retiring, “for good”

By: Nicole Burgos

Tom Brady, a quarterback in the National Football League who has played in seven Super Bowls and is largely regarded as the best quarterback in league history, said on Wednesday that he was retiring. A year prior, he had made a similar declaration but then changed his mind a few weeks later.

“I am retiring for good,” he said in a 53-second video message that he posted on Twitter. “Thank you, guys, for allowing me to live my absolute dream.”

Before going to Florida and coaching the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a Super Bowl victory in 2021, the 45-year-old Brady played for the New England Patriots for 20 seasons.

After the previous season, he announced his retirement, but he soon changed his mind and joined the Buccaneers again 40 days later. This time, he guided the team to the playoffs, but the Dallas Cowboys eliminated them last week.

After 13 years of marriage, Brady and his wife, supermodel Gisele Bundchen, announced their separation in October, around halfway through the season. Each of them is a parent to two kids.

Many people consider the native of northern California to be the league’s all-time best quarterback. A record-holder in Super Bowl appearances with ten, he took home seven championships.

Additionally, he was selected for 15 Pro Bowls, which is the most in league history, and he earned the MVP award for the Super Bowl five times. He received three Most Valuable Player awards from the league.

Brady, the 199th choice in the 2000 NFL Draft, was a modestly regarded prospect coming out of the University of Michigan. However, he took advantage of his opportunities and swiftly changed the Patriots franchise’s fortunes. Later, he would create one of the most legendary sporting dynasties.
