News Today –NFL Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady announced his retirement plans on Tuesday. He would leave behind a stellar career that saw him considered the greatest player of all-time in the NFL (American football) by winning a record seven Super Bowl titles.
Brady, now 44, spent 20 seasons with the New England Patriots, winning six Super Bowl titles before moving to Tampa Bay and guiding the Bucs to last year’s American football championship final.
“I’ve always believed that the sport of football is all about giving it your all, if the 100 percent competitive commitment isn’t there, you’re not going to be successful, and success is what I love about our game,” Brady tweeted.
“There are physical, mental, and emotional challenges every day and that has allowed me to maximize my maximum potential and I have tried my best in the last 22 years. There are no shortcuts to success on the pitch or in life.”
“It’s hard for me to write this, but here it is: I won’t be making that competitive commitment again. I’ve loved my career in the NFL, and now is the time to focus my time and energy on other things that require my attention.”
Brady’s decision came after a dominant season in which he led the record for touchdown passes and passing yards. He could win the league’s player of the year title for a fourth time, which would make him the oldest player to win the title.

Responding to reports in recent weeks about his future, Brady has finally confirmed his decision to retire.
