Tom Brady Retires…Again
Future Hall of Fame quarterback Tom Brady (pictured above) took to social media on Wednesday morning to announce his retirement from the National Football League:
The former Michigan Wolverine just completed his 23rd season in the NFL, his third with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after a legendary 20 year stint with the New England Patriots.
This announcement comes one year after he retired from the league, but reconsidered and came back to play for the Bucs in the 2023 season, which was the final year of his contract with the team.
He is the only player in NFL history to win seven Super Bowl titles (which is more than any other franchise), and the only player in league history to play in 10 Super Bowls.
Tom holds or shares more than 30 NFL records. He has started more games at QB, thrown for more yards, completed more passes, and thrown more touchdown passes than any other player in league history.
He also won three NFL Most Valuable Player Awards. The last one coming when he was 40 years old (five years ago), which is another record he holds for oldest NFL MVP.
Brady is expected to join Fox Sports next season to become their lead game analyst, alongside play-by-play man Kevin Burkhardt (who will call Super Bowl LVII on February 12th with Greg OIsen). Tom's deal with Fox is a reported 10-year deal worth $375 million, the richest deal for an analyst in American professional sports.
