Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady announced on Twitter that he is retiring from the NFL, Feb. 1, 2023. 

Brady, finished with 23 years under his belt, he spent 20 seasons with the New England Patriots and he spent his final three with Tampa Bay. Brady was drafted as the 199 pick of the 2000 NFL Draft. In his career he won seven super bowls which is more than any other quarterback and team in history. Brady leads the league in passing yards with 89,214 as well as touchdowns with 649. 

“He’s a legend of the game, but he has to focus on his personal life more than his athletic career,” said junior Logan Fontes.

Certainly the league will not be the same without one of the most accomplished and well-known athletes of all time.
