Former Patriots and Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady is retiring from the NFL, for real this time. Brady announced his retirement in a new video on his social media accounts Wednesday morning. Watch his announcement in the video above.
Ditching the pomp and circumstance that came with his initial retirement in 2022, which included a long message on his social media, Brady instead made a 53-second selfie video and got right to the point.
“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,” Brady explained. “So, it won’t be long-winded, and you only get one super-emotional retirement essay, and I used mine up last year.”
As he did for a time last year, Brady retires as a seven-time Super Bowl champion and a 35-13 career record in the playoffs. He’s also the NFL’s all-time leader in passing touchdowns (649) and passing yards (89,214).
