Is it the end of the GOAT or will he have something else left? Naphtha in the tank is safely left to Tom Brady after a great 2021-22 season in the National Football League (NFL) with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. But retirement seems to be imminently unavoidable at this point.
This Saturday Adam Schefter, trusted journalist from ESPN, stunned the football world by announcing that the quarterback had made the decision to retire from the NFL. However, that report was later refuted by multiple sources, including Tom’s father and agent.
This may simply be a disagreement with the timing of the announcement, given Schefter’s fidelity and the ambiguity of the messages refuting him, especially from his agent, who only said he hadn’t made up his mind yet. It is possible that the same QB wants to announce it.
Retirement or not, Tom’s senior year was epic despite losing in the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs to Los Angeles Rams. He finished the regular season with 5,316 passing yards, 43 touchdown passes and 12 interceptionswith 102.1 passer rating.
