El mejor mariscal de campo en las últimas dos décadas Tom Brady, anuncio el día de hoy en un comunicado a través de sus redes sociales que se retira del futbol americano y de su equipo los Patriotas después de una larga carrera de 20 años.

I just wanted to say to all of our fans, THANK YOU! After a few days of reflection, I am so grateful and humbled by the unconditional support you have shown me the past two decades. Running out of that tunnel every week is a feeling that is hard to explain. I wish every season ended in a win, but that’s not the nature of sports (or life). Nobody plays to lose. But the reward for working hard is just that, the work!! I have been blessed to find a career I love, teammates who go to battle with me, an organization that believes in me, and fans who have been behind us every step of the way. Every one of us that works at Gillette Stadium strived to do their best, spent themselves at a worthy cause, and prepared to fail while daring greatly (h/t Teddy Roosevelt). And for that, we’ve been rewarded with something that the scoreboard won’t show - the satisfaction of knowing we gave everything to each other in pursuit of a common goal. That is what TEAM is all about. In both life and football, failure is inevitable. You dont always win. You can, however, learn from that failure, pick yourself up with great enthusiasm, and place yourself in the arena again. And that’s right where you will find me. Because I know I still have more to prove.

Tom Brady comenzó su carrera con los patriotas en el año 2000 cuando fue escogido hasta el round 6 y fue la opción 199. En su carrera jugo un total de 9 SuperBowl y gano 6 convirtiéndose en el jugador de la NFL con más SuperBowl ganados.

Tom no dijo cual es futuro dentro de la NFL pero mucho se especula que podría empezar a ser comentarista deportivo.
