NFL legend Tom Brady announced Wednesday he's retiring "retiring for good."

"I'm retiring for good," Brady said in a short video posted on his social media. "You only get one super emotional retirement essay, and I used mine up last year."

Brady, considered by many to be the greatest quarterback in NFL history, in February 2022 announced his retirement, then reversed his decision a month later to rejoin the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Brady spent his first 20 seasons with the New England Patriots before playing the past three seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. His career includes seven Super Bowl victories in 10 appearances.
