Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady has announced that he will retire from football after 23 seasons. The former New England Patriots quarterback retired last offseason as well but returned to action about one month after deciding to retire. This time the retirement will likely be for good and the end of the greatest football career ever. Brady will likely transition to the broadcast booth for next season with his deal at FOX Sports waiting for him. This past offseason he signed a ten-year deal with the media company that will pay him $375 million.

Tom Brady retires with every major career passing record and more accomplishments than can be listed here. As the quarterback of the New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, he completed 7,753 passes for 89,214 yards, 649 touchdowns, and 212 interceptions on 12,050 attempts. Brady was named to 15 Pro Bowls, three All-Pro teams, and was named NFL MVP three times in his career. Of course, Brady won an NFL record seven Super Bowls and was named Super Bowl MVP in five of those games.
Tom Brady is unquestionably the “G.O.A.T.” of the NFL and perhaps even North American sports in general. With him likely headed to the broadcast booth, fans will still get to see and hear from Brady as he provides his football knowledge to commentary on Sunday.
