It’s not quite Groundhog Day – but yeah, you’ve heard it all before. Quarterback Tom Brady is retiring from the NFL – this time, he said in a video posted on social media Wednesday morning.
Brady released the message on February 1, the same date he announced his retirement from the NFL in 2022.
“I’m retiring. For good,” Brady said in his new farewell message. He thanked his supporters – and acknowledged the uproar over previous announcements about his plans.
“I won’t be around long,” Brady said. “You only get one super-emotional retirement essay, and I used mine last year.”
Addressing his family, friends, teammates and competitors, Brady added, “Thank you guys for allowing me to live my absolute dream. I wouldn’t change a thing.”
In a superlative career of 23 years with the New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Brady collected a series of elite records. He owns the most Super Bowl wins (7), as well as most passing touchdowns (649) and passing yards (89,214).
