Tom Brady (46), a living legend of the North American Professional Football (NFL) and one of the best quarterbacks of all time, announced his retirement from active play again after a year. He stressed that this time he was ‘forever’.
Brady posted a 53-second video announcing his retirement on his Twitter and Instagram on the 1st (local time). In this video, he said, “I’ll just get to the point. retire Forever,” he said. “I know that the last time this process (retirement declaration and reversal) was a fairly big problem,” he said. He said, “I am grateful to each and every person who supported me. Family, friends, co-workers, opponents with whom he competed, the list is endless. Thank you all for letting me live in my perfect dream. Nothing will change. I love you all,” he added.
Brady also announced his retirement in February of last year. At the time, the news of his retirement was first known through the media, but this time he was the first to speak. Previously, Brady overturned retirement after 40 days and returned to his team, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, to digest his 23rd season, and Tampa Bay finished the season by losing to the Dallas Cowboys in the playoff wild card match. 온라인바카라
Brady is an iconic presence in the NFL, comparable to baseball’s Babe Ruth, golf’s Tiger Woods, basketball’s Michael Jordan, and ice hockey’s Wayne Gretzky. Through rigorous training and thorough self-management, he spent 23 years in the NFL, winning 219 wins in the regular season and 32 wins in the postseason. With 88 passing touchdowns, he reigned as the best quarterback. All of these are all-time records. Not only. He has advanced to the Super Bowl an all-time 10 times, won the championship an all-time 7 times, and won the Super Bowl Most Valuable Player (MVP) an all-time 5 times. 3 regular season MVPs tied for 2nd place. He also appeared in the All-Star Pro Bowl 15 times, the most ever. The teams that won the most Super Bowls are the New England Patriots and the Pittsburgh Steelers (6 times), which he has been with for a long time.
The beginning was weak. He was selected by New England in the 6th round, 199 overall pick, in the 2000 NFL Draft. In his debut season, he only appeared in one game as a backup quarterback, but the following year, when the starting quarterback was injured, he took advantage of the opportunity and took New England to the top of the Super Bowl for the first time ever. New England opened a dynasty with Brady at the top of the Super Bowl a total of six times, and Brady won the Super Bowl for the first time in 18 years as soon as he moved the team to Tampa Bay in 2020.
Supermodel Gisele Bundchen, who ended her 13-year marriage with Brady in October last year, commented, “I hope this new chapter of your life will be filled with wonderful things.” At the time of her divorce, local media analyzed that Brady’s reversal of her retirement had an impact. Brady’s re-announcement of his retirement was followed by special coverage from overseas media. Supporting comments from stars also poured in. Patrick Mahomes (Kansas City Chiefs), who is mentioned as Brady’s successor, plastered a goat icon that means ‘Greatest Of All Time’ (GOAT). Son Heung-min’s ‘best friend’ Harry Kane (Tottenham) also accompanied the goat icon, saying, “Congratulations on retiring with great achievements. He said, “Let’s meet at the golf course.” Serena Williams and David Beckham also cheered for the future.
