Tom Brady Announces He's Retiring 'For Good' in Emotional Video
Tom Brady, who won a record seven Super Bowls for New England and Tampa, has announced his retirement.
Brady — the most successful quarterback in NFL history, and one of the greatest athletes in team sports — posted the announcement on social media Wednesday morning, a brief video lasting just under one minute.
“Good morning guys. I’ll get to the point right away,” Brady says as the message begins.
“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,” he said.
He briefly retired after the 2021 season, but wound up coming back for one more year with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
“I won’t be long-winded; you only get one super-emotional retirement essay and I used mine up last year, so.
“I 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.”
He retires at age 45, the owner of numerous passing records in an unprecedented 23-year career.
