Tom Brady is a 45-year-old former football legend who is widely considered the greatest player in NFL history. On Wednesday, he announced his retirement following his worst performance of the season. According to NFL records, Brady is the all-time champion in nearly every key passing playoff scenario and the winner of seven Super Bowls. He was the league’s oldest player. However, his career was tainted by many controversies. After an inquiry into whether the team purposely deflated footballs to gain an advantage, the NFL suspended Brady for five games in 2015.

Brady walked out of this year’s tournament because he felt he couldn’t live up to his record. Many thought Brady’s year would be his final, but others thought he wouldn’t go out on a sour note. While last year, several rumors circulated that the athlete would be taking a break shortly, which he did announce, it was just temporary as he returned to the field. Once and for all, the former player has officially put an end to speculation over his future.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady announced his retirement on social media. “I’ll get right to the point. I’m retiring,” Brady said.

He kept everything simple and obvious. He also mentioned his previous retirement, stating that it was a big deal at the time. He also stated that upon his retirement, his fans will only receive one long statement. On February 1st, 2022, he had already handed them one, explaining that it was his time to leave the field.
