GOAT walk away again … One year ago today, Tom Brady announced his retirement from football, but ultimately changed his mind and played one more year in Tampa Bay. This morning, Brady again said he is retiring only this time for good. There had been speculation that he might plat another year, perhaps in Las Vegas or maybe San Francisco, but the reality he was starting to show age last year and there is an adage in sports that its best to go out on top. And that’s certainly what Brady was as he’ll retire with 7 Super Bowl rings and 5 Super Bowl MVPs; he was also named the league.s MVP three times and retires with a slew of NFL records including most wins, most passes, most completions, most yards and most touchdowns, both in the regular season and in the postseason. He truly was the greatest player in NFL history.
Brady’s retirement also will have a ripple effect throughout the league as he could have filled, at least on a short term basis, one of the numerous QB vacancies around the NFL, that some team may now have to look even harder at the draft to address. Stay tuned!
