A legend retires: Tom Brady says goodbye to American football. The GOAT confirmed that he leaves the activity after becoming the sport’s record man.

By Facundo Di Bona (@facudibona).

Tom Brady announced his retirement from the NFL after 22 years of an illustrious career that have earned him being considered the GOAT of American football.

The New England Patriots legend, who was last in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, used Twitter and Instagram to announce that his career was over:

“I have always believed that football is a sport whose purpose is to give everything. If 100% commitment isn’t there, you’re not going to be successful and success is something that I love so much about our game. There is a physical, mental and emotional challenge every day that has allowed me to maximize my highest potential. And I have tried to the maximum in these 22 years. There are no shortcuts to success in life or on the field.”

“It’s hard for me to write it down, but there it goes: I’m not going to make that competitive commitment anymore. I’ve loved my NFL career, and now it’s time to focus my time and energy on other things that require my attention.”

In the same statement, the quarterback took the opportunity to thank each of the coaches, teammates and family for the support he received during so many careers.

On Monday, in his podcast “Let’s Go”, Brady had said that he still needed time to make a decision, but on Tuesday morning he surprised with the announcement on social networks.

In 2021, Tom Brady passed for a career-high 5,316 yards and the third-most passing yards in a season in NFL history.

His 84,520 yards and 624 touchdown passes are both league records, as well as becoming the first player in NFL history with 600 touchdown passes.

During the 22 years he played in the NFL, Brady became the top Super Bowl winner with seven in total: six with the New England Patriots – club in which he was for 20 years – and the last with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, last year.

GOAT in records

Among his many achievements, it also stands out that he was the player who completed the most passes in a season: 485 in total.

He was elected three times as the league’s MVP (2007, 2011, 2017) and in those same seasons he was named to the first team All Pro, in addition to being named Comeback Player of the Year in 2009 and Offensive Player of the Year in 2010.

As if that wasn’t enough, he holds the record for most Pro Bowl selections with 15 and most Super Bowl MVPs with five.

Brady leads the departments in wins, completions and attempts, passing yards, touchdown passes and is eighth in rating.

In the Super Bowl, there is no one like Brady as he is also the kingpin in scoring (21), most attempted passes (421) and completions (277), passing yards (3,039).

In fact, Brady is the only quarterback in history with more than 600 aerial touchdowns in history and his 710 touchdown passes, including postseason, are 102 more than those recorded by the second historical place (Drew Brees with 608).
