Brady spent 23 seasons in the league after the New England Patriots drafted him in the sixth round of the 2000 NFL Draft

He won six of his rings with the Patriots before leaving for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2020 and adding another championship to his resume that season.

Brady had initially retired in 2022 before U-turning on the decision weeks later.

He announced the news in a heartfelt online message.

The GOAT divorced from Gisele Bundchen in October after thirteen years of marriage.

While his Tampa Bay side fell short of another Super Bowl visit after defeat in the NFL playoffs.

In an emotional video, Tom told his fans: “I’ll get to the point right away. I’m retiring. For good.

“I know the process was a pretty big deal last time so I woke up this morning I figured I’d just press record and let you guys know first so, it won’t be long winded.

“You only get one super emotional retirement essay and I used mine up last year, so really thank you guys so much for supporting me.

“My family, my friends, my teammates, my competitors – I could go on forever, there’s too many.

“Thank you guys for allowing me to live my absolute dream. I wouldn’t change a thing. Love you all.”
