Former American football quarterback Thomas Edward Patrick Brady Jr. spent 23 seasons as a quarterback in the National Football League. He played for the New England Patriots for his first 20 seasons, where from 2001 to 2019 he played a key role in the team’s dynasty.
Tom Brady, an American football quarterback, has left the National Football League after a stellar 23 seasons (NFL).
Brady declared his retirement on December 31, 2022, but changed his mind six weeks later, telling BBC Sport that he still had “unfinished business.”
With the New England Patriots, the 45-year-old won six Super Bowls, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers won one in 2021.
Nevertheless, he announced it on Wednesday morning.
Brady announced his retirement in a moving video that was shared on social media. “I assumed when I got up this morning I’d just push record and let you guys know first because I know the procedure was a pretty big deal last time.
It won’t be drawn out. One really emotional retirement essay is allotted to you, and I used mine up last year.
“I want to thank everyone who has helped me, including my family, friends, teammates, and rivals. The list would never end since there are so many.
“I want to thank you for letting me live my wildest dream. I won’t make any changes. I adore you all.
Tom Brady screams down divorce after telling the World he was quitting NFL
While watching his daughter’s horseback riding lessons, Tom Brady erupted into a rage on the phone, which was in sharp contrast to the composed video he had broadcast earlier to announce his second retirement.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback made a U-turn on his initial decision to retire last year, which appears to have put his life into a tailspin and led to his breakup with supermodel Gisele Bundchen. He said yesterday that he was retiring ‘for good’.
Prior to accompanying his daughter Vivian, 10, for a horseback riding lesson in Florida early on Wednesday morning, Brady, 45, announced his second retirement from his 22-year NFL career.
Brady was agitated and could be seen yelling into his headphones as he had an impassioned chat with someone on his phone, while appearing calm in his introduction video.
For a brief moment, it seemed as though he was taping his daughters’ lessons, but the superstar soon began shouting and waving aggressively, even spitting at one point in rage.
Brady smiled, cutting a relaxed figure in a white t-shirt and neutral-colored tracksuit pants, but his expression abruptly changed as he began pointing and shouting.
The Super Bowl winner’s emotional outburst remains unknown, but by the time the lesson was over, he appeared to have subsided.
After promising Gisele, 42, that he would retire to give her more time for her career, Brady and Gisele separated on October 28 of last year.
The Super Bowl champion, however, immediately changed his mind and went back to playing football just 40 days later. This appears to have caused issues for the A-List couple and led to their divorce.
When making the announcement, he addressed the camera and said, “Good morning, gentlemen. I’ll get right to the point. I’ll never work again.
“I figured when I got up this morning I’d just push record and let you guys know first because I know the procedure was a pretty big deal last time.”
It won’t be drawn out. I used up my one super-emotional retirement article last year, so actually, I’d like to thank each and every one of you for your support.
He instantly altered his attitude after the class was finished, laughing and grinning with Vivian as they made their way back to a car.
He held his daughter’s hand and swung a black water bottle at his side while the two animatedly chatted.
Later, the world-famous figure could be seen laughing with his daughter and buying them both iced drinks from a local store.
According to ESPN’s Jeff Darlington, Brady “announced the Bucs around 6:00am he’d be retiring.”
Brady is rumored to be moving on to FOX Sports’ broadcast booth, where he will reportedly sign a ten-year, $375 million contract.
On the same day that he originally said he was leaving the game, he now announces his retirement. While playing for the New England Patriots in January 2022, Brady announced his initial retirement. He only lasted 40 days before declaring his comeback to the Buccaneers for the 2022 season.
He added: “My family, my friends, my teammates, and my competitors” in the video announcing his second retirement. I could go on for long because there are so many.
“Thank you for letting me live the life of my dreams, gentlemen. There is nothing I would alter. I adore you all.
His ex-wife Gisele broke her silence soon after he announced his retirement by leaving a comment on his Instagram, which featured images of the two of them together.
Bundchen added the phrase “wishing you only beautiful things in this new chapter of your life” along with an emoji of prayer hands.
Vivian and son Benjamin, 13, are Brady and Bundchen’s joint children.
Having played in the notoriously brutal NFL, Bundchen had expressed concern for Brady’s health, and she acknowledged in an article for Elle magazine that she had these conversations with her husband.
The former power couple wed in 2009 and were married for 13 years.
In his statement announcing the divorce, he stated that the choice had taken the two “much contemplation” and had been “tough” and “painful.”
“To dissolve a marriage is never easy… we have grown apart,” Gisele continued.
“I feel thankful for the time we spent together and just wish the best for Tom,” she added, adding that she “wishes the best” for Brady.
They both pledged to keep raising their two children jointly as co-parents.
The mother of two was observed getting to know her jiu-jitsu instructor, Joaquim Valente, during the winter holidays in Costa Rica.
A source close to Gisele, however, vehemently disputed that they are dating, claiming that their date was anything but romantic and that Joaquim is only a close family friend.
Gisele and Joaquim seem to have been friends for a very long time, and last year they even took part in a picture session for Dust Magazine with Joaquim’s brothers, Pedro and Giu Valente.
