After 22 seasons in the NFL, Tom Brady has announced he will be retiring from the game. This move comes with some shock as the rumors of this move only started two days ago. However, at the age of 44 and after 7 Super Bowl rings, it's as good of time as any to hang up his cleats.
Brady retires as the all-time career leader in passing yards, passing touchdowns, quarterback wins, quarterback super bowls and a dozen other season or game records to add to his list.
The question of him being in the Hall-of-Fame was answered over a decade ago as an obvious YES. The other question that has surrounded him ever since is if he is the "G.O.A.T" at his position and of the sport in general. This seems to have been answered the same after he won an MVP at age 40 and a 7th Super Bowl at age 43.
The long-time Patriots and short time Buccaneers QB will forever be remembered as an ambassador, leader, captain and one of the best players of the game. For as many haters as this man made by winning, we are all sad to see him leave.
