Tom Brady announces he's retiring from the NFL in emotional video
Tom Brady is officially retiring from the NFL, for good. The long-time quarterback made the announcement Wednesday morning on social media.
“Good morning, guys,” Brady started. “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 just figured I 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. So, really thank you guys so much — to every single one of you for supporting me. My family, my friends, my teammates, the 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. Love you all.”

Brady officially exits the NFL as one of the game’s all-time greats, if not the greatest to ever play the quarterback position. The 7-time Super Bowl Champion and 3-time NFL MVP had an illustrious career that spanned 23 years and with 2 teams — the New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Brady finishes his NFL career with 89,214 passing yards, 649 passing touchdowns and 7 Super Bowl wins. What an amazing career that may not ever be replicated.
