Tom Brady is hanging up his jersey after 22 seasons in the NFL. The GOAT quarterback came to this difficult decision and now fans will have to carry on as the GOAT’s legacy is now solidified. His representation has something to say about this news breaking so soon.
Brady teased retirement, but many hoped he would have a couple more seasons. The eventual wear and tear on his body and desire to enjoy life with his family encouraged him to make this decision. That being said, nothing is 100% official just yet.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter, who first broke the news, released a statement that was sent to him from Brady’s agent Don Yee. In the statement, it was said that Brady will be the only person to finally express his desire to retire, and that announcement should be coming soon.
“I understand the advance speculation about Tom’s future. Without getting into the accuracy or inaccuracy of what’s being reported, Tom will be the only person to express his plans with complete accuracy. He knows the realities of the football business and planning calendar as well as anybody, so that should be soon.”
Tom Brady’s 22-season career in the NFL will go down in history. He even picked up an additional ring with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after leaving the New England Patriots, an achievement that should not be taken lightly. We will have to see when Tom Brady finally makes his announcement public, but we will have continued coverage here at Thirsty.
