Buccaneers’ Brady Announces His Retirement


Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ quarterback Tom Brady announced his retirement Wednesday morning.

“I’ll get to the point right away: I’m retiring for good,” Brady stated. “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. So I won’t be long-winded. I think 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, teammates, my competitors, I could go on forever. There’s too many. Thank you guys for letting me live my absolute dream. I wouldn’t change a thing. Love you all.”


“The 2000 sixth-round draft pick played two decades with the New England Patriots, helping lead the organization to six Lombardi Trophies. Brady closed out his career with three Buccaneers seasons, which included a Super Bowl triumph in his first season with Tampa Bay.”

Via Sports Talk Florida.

“He seems ready to start his new career with Fox Sports and their NFL team. His debut is not expected this year as Fox has the Super Bowl coverage, at as of the writing of this article.

Even though the Buccaneers won the NFC South and made the playoffs it was the first year in his career that he had a losing record. Off the football field it was also a tough year as he finalized his divorce from wife Gisele Bündchen in October 2022.

The G.O.A.T. as always showed class in thanking the people that helped him become the greatest quarterback in National Football League history.

“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. I love you all.”

Brady joined the Buccaneers in 2020 and in his first season he guided the team to a Super Bowl 55 win in Tampa in 2021. He spent the first 20 seasons of his NFL career with the New England Patriots, where he won six Super Bowls.

Buccaneers fans were thankful for his three years in Tampa and his relationship the Glazers could mean still being part of the franchise perhaps in an ownership stake.”
