“I know the process was a pretty big deal last time,” Brady said, “so when I woke up this morning, I figured I’d just press record and let you guys know first.”In the clip, he went on to thank his teammates, opponents, fans, family, and friends adding that he “wouldn’t change a thing.”
“Love you all,” he concluded.
In Feb 2021, Brady made a similar announcement, but ultimately, his retirement only lasted a few weeks, and he was back on the field within 40 days.
Brady led the Buccaneers to the playoffs in his final season in the league, but they were eliminated early after losing to the Dallas Cowboys in the Wild Card round.
According to TMZ, he has signed a huge contract to serve as a commentator for Fox.
