Tom Brady made it official on Tuesday morning. He is retiring after all.

After reports emerged over the weekend that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback would retire, and then there were reports that disputed the initial reports, Brady made it clear.

“This is difficult for me to write, but here it goes: I am not going to make that competitive commitment anymore,” he wrote on social media. “I have loved my NFL career, and now it is time to focus my time and energy on other things that require my attention.”

Brady’s news came a little more than a week after he led the Buccaneers back from a 27-3 deficit against the Rams only to watch from the sideline as the defense allowed a game-winning drive. On conference championship weekend, it was the Brady news that enveloped NFL coverage for hours.

Brady’s family has long been a part of the decision. He is a seven-time Super Bowl champion and the NFL’s career leader in numerous passing categories, Brady was under contract for 2022, but he has cited a desire to spend more time with his wife, supermodel Gisele Bundchen, and 3 children.

Brady also may be most known for Brady winning 6 Super Bowls with the New England Patriots in 20 seasons playing for coach Bill Belichick. He joined the Buccaneers in 2020 and led them to the second Super Bowl title in franchise history. This past season, Brady led the NFL in yards passing (5,316), touchdowns (43), completions (485) and attempts (719), but the Buccaneers’ season ended with the loss to the Rams in the divisional round.
