This is the second straight offseason that Brady has retired. Last time, he was retired for 40 days before coming back to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

He is a first ballot Hall of Famer.

The future Hall of Famer played for the New England Patriots and the Buccaneers. He played nearly two decades with the Patriots before playing the last three seasons with the Buccaneers.

“I know the process was a pretty big deal last time, so when I woke up this morning, I figured I’d just press record and let you guys know first,” Brady said in a video on Twitter. “I 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 to every single one of you for supporting me.”

ESPN is reporting that Brady informed the Buccaneers of his retirement at 6 am on Wednesday.

In his career, Brady appeared in 335 games. He made 333 starts. Brady went 251-82 as a starter.
