Tom Brady has once again announced that he is retiring, but this time it’s “for good”.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers star quarterback shared the bombshell news in a video on Twitter on Wednesday morning.

“Hello, guys. I’ll get straight to the point. I’m retiring. For good,” he said with a nod.

“I know the process was pretty big last time, so when I woke up this morning I thought I’d press record and let you know first,” he explained.

” It will not be long. You only get one super emotional retreat to try and I used mine last year,” Brady said. So really, thank you, guys, so much, to each and every one of you for supporting me. My family, my friends, my teammates, my competitors, I could go on forever, there are too many. Thank you guys for letting me live my absolute dream. I wouldn’t change anything. I love you all.”Tom Brady

Brady signed a 10-year Fox Sports deal worth $375 million, a source familiar with the matter told NBC News. The deal was first reported by the New York Post in May.

The decision comes after Brady said last February that he would retire from the NFL, but his absence from the field lasted just 40 days. He reversed that decision in March.

The Buccaneers reposted his video on their social media accounts and shared a photo of him with the caption “Thank you”.Tom Brady

Messages of support poured in for Brady, revered by many as the greatest quarterback in NFL history, on his social media posts.

Football legend David Beckham commented on his Instagram video, “We love you, man.” Meanwhile, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes commented with three goat emojis with “goat” for “greatest of all time.”

Tennis great Serena Williams commented: “I have tears in my eyes watching this. Sad to see you go. Welcome to the world of retirement…. Again.”

Derek Jeter, the legendary New York Yankees shortstop, said, “Congratulations on an incredible career. It was fun to watch!!”

The news also comes about three months after Brady and his model wife, Gisele Bündchen, officially divorced after 13 years of marriage.

Brady and Bündchen, who married in 2009, share two children, Benjamin, 12, and Vivian, 9. The NFL star also shares 15-year-old son Jack with actor and model Bridget Moynahan.
