Tom Brady announces he’s ‘retiring for good’
Tom Brady, the seven-time Super Bowl champion who holds all major NFL passing records, announced in an emotional beachside video that he was “retiring for good.”
The video was posted to his social media accounts exactly one year after he said goodbye to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to focus on off-court commitments. He would announce his return less than 2 months later.
“Hello, guys. I’ll cut to the chase right away,” he said in the video. “I’m retiring for good. I know the process was pretty big last time. So when I woke up this morning I thought I’d just hit the record button and tell you I’ll let you know first I won’t You only get one super emotional retreat trial and I used mine last year.
“Thank you guys so much, every single one of you for supporting me. My family, my friends, my teammates, my competitors…I can go on forever. There’s too many. Thank you guys for letting me to live my absolute dream.
“I wouldn’t change anything.”
Brady posted several photos of his family, friends, teammates and coaches on his Instagram Stories.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback led his team to the playoffs even as the team suffered a ton of injuries and finished with an 8-9 record.
