After 22 seasons in the NFL, Tom Brady has finally called it quits. Some fans are returning to the news after waiting two decades for his reign to end,
but others are taking a step back to truly comprehend how incredible his career was and how fortunate we all were to have witnessed it.
Fans and players from across the NFL took to Twitter to express their feelings about Brady’s retirement. There was happiness, trolling, laughter, tears, rejoicing, and reminiscing. Love him or hate him, Tom Brady’s career is unlike anything else we’ve seen and will go down as one of the most iconic sports careers in history.
The Buccaneers players were not the only ones who paid tribute to Brady and his career. After Brady’s announcement went viral, players from J.J. Watt (who also recently retired) to Patrick Mahomes were showering him with flowers.
Greatest of All Time.
No question, no debate.
It’s been an honor and a privilege.
Here’s how NFL fans reacted to Tom Brady’s retirement announcement on Twitter.
The question now is whether Brady will remain retired this time. We went through this whole thing last offseason, when he essentially unretired to punish Adam Schefter for stepping on his initial announcement.
Things appear to be a little more official this time. Brady leaves the game as one of the most decorated players in history, and possibly the greatest player to ever play the game. When it comes to his career accomplishments, his three MVPs, five Super Bowl MVPs, and seven Super Bowl rings are just the tip of the iceberg.
Love him or hate him, Tome Brady has been synonymous with the NFL for the last two decades. It’s a little wild that we’re going to be living in a world where Brady is no longer playing professional football — a world that we haven’t lived in since 2000 — and it’s clear he’s left an indelible mark on the game and its fans.
