Good evening, another day, another retirement for one of the National Football League’s greatest quarterbacks in its storied history after 20.
Many of which went down with the Patriots tomorrow with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the widely recognized goat that is the greatest of all time, Tom Brady formally announced his retirement
from pro football today via his various social media accounts.
This marks the second huge retirement less than a calendar week as Brady joins the Steelers Ben Roethlisberger in retirement.
Those two shirts sure have had their battles over the years fitting they go out in the same off season.
We’re still awaiting the future of Aaron Rodgers of the Packers, so if he indeed likes to hang them up, this off season could go down as the year of the greatest ever do it and a few
other ones retiring.
But time will tell. Brady, 44 years old, seven Super Bowls five Super Bowl MVP has just about every record there is to hold for National Football League quarterbacks.
624 passing touchdowns, 84,250 yards, no doubt a first ballot Hall of Famer whose longevity won’t soon be duplicated.
Brady cited being all in on what it takes to be successful at the NFL level, said he could not get back to that place and he owes his team everything that he has.
So he’s going to spend more time with his family, watched kids grow up, be more a part of their lives like him or hate him.
Hard to argue the impact Brady had on the quarterback position as a sixth round pick out of Michigan.
