[ # ] Tom Brady announces his retirement
February 1st, 2022 under Sports figures

Tom Brady shared some big news this news. After 22 years, 10 Super Bowls with 7 wins, his career as a professional football player is over.

I have always believed the sport of football is an “all-in” proposition – if a 100% competitive commitment isn’t there, you won’t succeed, and success is what I love so much about our game. There is a physical, mental, and emotional challenge EVERY single day that has allowed me to maximize my highest potential. And I have tried my very best these past 22 years. There are no shortcuts to success on the field or in life.

This is difficult for me to write, but here it goes: I am not going to make that competitive commitment anymore. I have loved my NFL career, and now it is time to focus my time and energy on other things that require my attention.

I’ve done a lot of reflecting the past week and have asked myself difficult questions. And I am so proud of what we have achieved. My teammates, coaches, fellow competitors, and fans deserve 100% of me, but right now, it’s best I leave the field of play to the next generation of dedicated and committed athletes.

To my Bucs teammates the past two years, I love you guys, and I have loved going to battle with you. You have dug so deep to challenge yourself, and it inspired me to wake up every day and give you my best. I am always here for you guys and want to see you continue to push yourselves to be your best. I couldn’t be happier with what we accomplished together.

The future is exciting. I’m fortunate to have cofounded incredible companies like @autograph.io @bradybrand, @tb12sports that I am excited to continue to help build and grow, but exactly what my days will look like will be a work-in-progress. As I said earlier, I am going to take it day by day. I know for sure I want to spend a lot of time giving to others and trying to enrich other people’s lives, just as so many have done for me.
With much love, appreciation, and gratitude,
Tom

I know there are plenty of sad people today, but I say good riddance. He didn’t make it to the Super Bowl, so he retired. Not only that, he made the announcement before the big game. That means his retirement will overshadow the game and the teams.

Plus, I always thought of him as a pompous jerk who only cares about money. The three businesses he wrote about are all for profit. How much more money do he and Gisele B√ľndchen need? Why don’t they start a nonprofit and do some good with all of their millions? The same way other GOATS like LeBron James, Magic Johnson, Peyton Manning, and Drew Brees have done.
