After the loss, the quarterback was immediately met with questions about his future. He initially said he was in “no rush” to make a decision, but with the Buccaneers about to enter the offseason, that decision was looming.

The news stunned the NFL world. 

Julian Edelman, Brady’s former New England teammate, led the reaction on Twitter.

The superstar quarterback will walk away as the all-time leader in passing yards (84,520), touchdown passes (624), completions (7,263) and attempts (11,317). He ranks second in fourth quarter comebacks with 42 – one behind one of his fiercest rivals, Peyton Manning.

Brady’s accolades are astounding.

Not only does Brady personally have more Super Bowl rings than every franchise in the NFL, he was also a Super Bowl MVP five times. He added 15 Pro Bowl appearances, three All-Pro selections and three MVP awards, and he was named to the Hall of Fame All-Decade Team for the 2000s and 2010s.
