Arguably the best player in NFL history is calling it a career after 22 seasons.
Tampa Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady is reportedly retiring from football, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Jeff Darlington.
A seven-time Super Bowl champion, Brady retires as the NFL’s all-time leader in passing yards (84,520), touchdowns (624), completions (7,263) and quarterback wins (243).
Brady will be eligible for induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2027, and with all likelihood will be enshrined alongside Ben Roethlisberger, who announced his retirement on Thursday.
In their head-to-head meetings, Brady owns a commanding 9-3 advantage, including a 2-0 mark in the playoffs. Both postseason meetings were in AFC Championship Games.
Brady threw 29 touchdowns and just five interceptions in his 12 career games against Pittsburgh. He averaged 312 passing yards per game in those meetings.
