Tom Brady, the GOAT, has apparently thrown his final professional pigskin. Now Brady is hanging up his jersey as a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and calling it a career.

Brady has teased retirement many times. Some thought that he had a couple more seasons left, possibly past his 50th birthday. That is not in the cards.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Tom Brady has retired. This is a breaking story and we do not have all of the details at this time.

Tom Brady is retiring from football after 22 extraordinary seasons, multiple sources tell @JeffDarlington and me.


Tom Brady spent 22 years of his life playing professional football. The GOAT deserves a break. Now he can rest easy and know that his legacy is more than solid. The big question is how this might affect the rest of the league as a huge force will no longer be a factor.

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
