Tampa, Fla. – Tom Brady, the greatest quarterback in NFL history, has retired after winning seven Super Bowl games and setting multiple passing records in an unprecedented 22-year career.
“This was hard for me, but here’s why: I won’t make that competitive commitment anymore,” Brady wrote in a lengthy Instagram post. “I’ve loved my NFL career, and now it’s time to focus my time and energy on other things that need my attention.”
Brady has long expressed a desire to spend more time with his wife, supermodel Gisele Bundchen and three children, even though he is still playing at the top.
Brady, 44, is leaving after leading the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to last season’s Super Bowl and this season’s NFC South.
News of Brady’s pending retirement leaked Saturday. His family and the Buccaneers deny that he has made a final decision, and he said Monday night on his SiriusXM podcast that he is not ready to complete his plan.
It was Tuesday morning.
“I’ve been reflecting a lot over the past week and have asked myself tough questions,” Brady said in his post. “And I am very proud of what we have achieved. My teammates, coaches, opponents and fans deserve me 100%, but for now, it’s best for me to leave the playing field to the next generation of committed and committed athletes. ”
