Brady announced his second retirement on Wednesday, February 1, 2023, through his social media and stated that he wouldn’t change a thing about his career. The announcement was made exactly a year to the day of his initial retirement.
He posted a short heartfelt video message from the shores of some beach. The 45-year-old dad of three utilized the opportunity to thank all those people who had a huge influence on his legendary 23-year NFL career.
After his initial retirement announcement in February 2022, he changed his mind within 40 days and returned to the game with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
But the player confirms that this time, there will be no going back even though hundreds of millions of dollars are waiting for him from his new job at Fox Sports.
Following his retirement from games, he is all set to join Fox Sports as the lead color commentator for the NFL broadcasts.
