Earlier this morning, Tom Brady retired from the NFL.
His career will go down in history as one of, if not the best of all time.
Brady is eligible for the Hall of Fame in 2028, and will likely be joined by another recent retiree.

J.J. Watt announced his retirement ahead of the Arizona Cardinals’ final regular season game.
Perhaps, Watt and Brady will continue to hone their golf game in retirement?
Brady has played in “The Match,” a charity event that pairs other professional athletes with professional golfers.
This situation is still fresh, and there are very few details about what Brady will be up to in the next several months.
Brady’s career is one of the most remarkable in NFL history on the offensive side of the ball, and Watt’s on the defensive.
Although they played different positions, Watt and Brady provided immense value to their respective teams.
Neither of these two players ended their career with the team that drafted them, but, because of their character and sustained success, they will be forever remembered within both organizations they touched.
A Hall of Fame bust is a decent accomplishment, as well.
The Hall of Fame welcomes anywhere from four to eight new players to its hallowed halls each year, and in 2028, Brady and Watt will assuredly be two of those.
Will any other players retire in the offseason, potentially joining Watt and Brady in 2028?
Only time will tell.
The next several months in the NFL should be filled with excitement, that much is for sure.NEXT: J.J. Watt Shares A Perfect Retirement Message For Tom Brady
