Tom Brady has retired after winning seven Super Bowls and setting numerous passing records in an unprecedented 22-year career.

He made the announcement in a long post on Instagram.

Brady has long stated his desire to spend more time with his wife, supermodel Gisele Bundchen, and three children despite still playing at the top of his game.

The 44-year-old Brady goes out after leading the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a Super Bowl title last season and NFC South championship this season.

Brady played for the New England Patriots from 2000-2019 and for Tampa Bay from 2020-2021.
