Tom Brady is retiring. 


The future Hall of Fame quarterback said that he is hanging up his cleats, one year exactly after he previously announced his retirement. Though the 45-year-old ended up playing in 2022, Brady insisted that this time it would be permanent. 

“I’m retiring,” Brady said in a 39-second video. “For good.” 

Brady retires as one of the greatest — if not the best — players of all time. He won seven Super Bowls, six with the New England Patriots and one with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. But Brady is stepping away after a 2022 that was challenging in both a professional and personal aspect.

The Buccaneers with 8-9 this past season, and though they won their division, they suffered a lopsided defeat to the Dallas Cowboys in the playoffs. Off the field, Brady also divorced his wife Gisele Bündchen.
