Earlier this morning, Tom Brady announced his retirement from the NFL for a second time.
Allegedly, this time will be different, and he will stay retired, unlike last season, where he retired, then quickly decided to come back.
After this news, one NFL media member pointed out Brady’s outstanding legacy, which spanned over 20 seasons.

From 2001-2011, Brady appeared in five Super Bowls, winning three of them, and securing two Super Bowl MVP awards.
From 2012-2021, Brady did the same.
Brady’s constant and consistent dominance in the NFL has been detrimental to opposing teams.
The fact that he continued his spectacular play for over 20 years is nothing short of remarkable, and, even if you break his career in half, he would be a shoo-in for the Hall of Fame in either “career.”
Brady left an impact on both the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New England Patriots and has left his mark on the NFL as a whole as well.
In his career, Brady has broken records for career wins, passing yards, and touchdowns, and the list goes on and on.
As shown in the graphic above, Brady also has the best career-winning percentage of any quarterback, and he did so from 2001-2011, and 2012-2021 as well.
What’s next for Brady?
At this point, all that is known is that he signed a ten-year contract with Fox Sports, and will eventually join their team in the broadcast booth.
In terms of the next few months, Brady will likely spend time with his family and friends, taking some time off from the game.NEXT: Tom Brady Retiring Officially Ends A Historic QB Era
