Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady took to Twitter this morning to announce his retirement from the NFL.
Here is a list of Tom Brady’s illustrious career accomplishments:
- 7 Super Bowl wins
- 5 Super Bowl MVPs
- 3 NFL MVPs
- 15 Pro Bowls
- 6 All Pros
- Most career wins
- Most career passing career passing TDs
- Made the playoffs in 20 of 21 seasons as a starter
This isn’t the first time that Brady has walked away from the game. Last February, the now-45-year-old quarterback initially announced his retirement, but then decided to call off his retirement just forty days later saying that his “place is still on the field and not in the stands.” Now, it appears as if Brady is ready to move on to the next chapter of his life.
Brady widely considered to be the greatest player of all time – the G.O.A.T. as he’s been referred as over the years. He first came into the NFL as the 199th overall pick in the 2000 NFL Draft out of Michigan and was selected by Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots.
Brady spent 20 years with the Patriots before departing the franchise in free agency in the spring of 2020. At that point, he elected to sign with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
In his first season in Tampa, the Buccaneers went on to win Super Bowl LV over the Kansas City Chiefs for the seventh title of Brady’s career. He followed that up by leading the NFL in passing yards (5,316) and passing touchdowns (43) in 2021.
