What an incredible ride for Brady over the past 22 seasons if this the end. What an incredible journey for him, his family, teammates and all the fans.
The man won seven Super Bowls, played for more than two decades in the NFL and made a ton of money. What more could you ask for?
He leaves behind a legacy that won’t be matched for a very long time.

He was a star with the Patriots and spent two awesome seasons with the Bucs. All great parties have to come to and end and that’s where Brady is at.
