Tom Brady announces retirement: This time I'm retired for good

Tom Brady has announced that he is "retiring from football for good." After the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' season ended, 45-year-old Brady said he would take some time before deciding on his NFL future. "Good morning guys. I'll get to the point right away.

I'm retiring for good. I know the process was a pretty big deal last time, so when I woke up this morning, I figured I'd just press record and let you guys know first. I won't be longwinded. You only get one super emotional retirement essay, and I used mine up last year, so really thank you guys so much to every single one of you for supporting me.

My family, my friends, my teammates, my competitors -- I could go on forever, there's too many. Thank you guys for allowing me to live my absolute dream. I wouldn't change a thing. Love you all," Brady said in a video posted on Twitter.

Brady retired 'for good' this time

After the 2021 season ended, Brady announced he was ending his career after 22 years in the NFL.

40 days later, Brady announced he was returning for his 23rd season. The Buccaneers' 2022 season didn't go as planned as the team struggled throughout the regular season but still managed to win their division. But the Buccaneers' problems were evident in the playoffs as they suffered a 31-14 defeat to the Dallas Cowboys in the wild-card round. Brady retired with seven Super Bowls, the most by a player in NFL history.
