Renowned NFL player, Tom Brady, has announced his retirement on Tuesday.

The veteran quarterback confirmed his retirement in a long and emotional letter on social media only days after rumors initially surfaced. 

Tom Brady, 43, shared a photo of himself playing with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with the caption 

This is difficult for me to write, but here it goes: I am not going to make that competitive commitment anymore.

I have loved my NFL career, and now it is time to focus my time and energy on other things that require my attention.

Tom Brady was selected by the New England Patriots in 2000 and played for them for the next 20 years, winning six Super Bowls.

Brady’s final two NFL seasons were spent with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, with whom he won his seventh Super Bowl championship in 2021.

After losing in the divisional round of the playoffs last month, the Buccaneers received massive news on Tuesday.

Many suspected that Brady would retire soon after the setback. He said he’d take it “day by day” at the moment.

He told reporters after the Buccaneers’ defeat to the Los Angeles Rams,

Truthfully, guys, I’m thinking about this game. I’m not thinking about anything past five minutes from now.

Brady commented on his time with the Buccaneers last week in an Instagram post by saying

I understand that at this stage in my career, there is going to be interested in my future whenever a season ends, but this week, all that is on my mind is the gratitude I have for this team and the fans that have supported us all year long.

This year has been incredibly rewarding personally and professionally and I am appreciative of everyone who worked their ass off to help our team achieve so much
