The news of the divorce between quarterback Tom Brady (46), who peaked in the NFL, and fashion legend Gisele Bundchen (43), was news that shook the American sports and entertainment world last year. .
The reason why they split up, who were known as a ‘parrot couple’, was Brady’s return to active duty.
Brady, a quarterback for the NFL’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers, announced his retirement from active play after the 2021-2022 season.
It is because he has nothing more to accomplish as a player and wants to spend his time faithfully with his family.
However, he overturned his retirement after only about 40 days, saying, “There is no place for me to be in the stands.”
He returned to Chuck Field after being persuaded by Joel Glaser, the owner of both Tampa Bay and Manchester United in the English Premier League (EPL).
Brady, who played one more season like that, announced his intention to retire again, this time saying, “This time I won’t be back forever.”
On the 2nd (Korean time), Brady posted a video on his Twitter saying, “I will not be lengthy. When I announced my retirement last year, I used all the lengthy expressions. Thank you to everyone who has supported me so far.”
The Tampa Bay team also put Brady’s uniform number 12 out loud with the hashtag ‘#ThankYouTom’.
The Glazer family said goodbye, saying, “He took the entire organization to a new level and created one of the most iconic moments in history. We will forever be grateful for the influence and memories he has given us.”
Many fans are saddened by Brady and his farewell.
Patrick Mahomes (Kansas City Chiefs), who is being discussed as the successor to the NFL’s best quarterback position, plastered the goat icon, which means ‘Greatest Of All Time (GOAT · The Greatest in History)’.
EPL Tottenham Hotspur goal scorer Harry Kane also celebrated with a goat icon, saying, “Congratulations on retiring with a great achievement. Let’s meet at the golf course.”
There are many reactions that say they do not believe in Brady’s retirement.
Many NFL fans say it’s hard to believe that Brady, who even divorced Bundchen to play as an active player, is retiring after just one season. 안전놀이터
It is because of his power that he reversed his words just a year ago.
In the comments of Brady’s Twitter post announcing his retirement, “Let’s see if he comes back in a few days this time” and “Brady will be the quarterback of Tampa Bay again next year.”
However, the prevailing prediction is that he will not return this time.
This is because he already signed a huge commentary contract with Fox Sports last year.
The size of the contract is a huge amount of 375 million dollars (approximately 457 billion won) over 10 years, which is more than the total annual salary Brady received while playing as an active player.
Brady has left an unmatched footprint in the NFL.
The NFL Super Bowl winningest teams are the New England Patriots and the Pittsburgh Steelers, who have lifted the Vince Lombardi Trophy six times.
Brady won the Super Bowl seven times alone and is evaluated as ‘a greater player than the team’.
Brady won all six of New England’s championships, and won another Super Bowl in 2021 after moving the team to Tampa Bay.
In addition, Brady left numerous ‘NFL records’, including Super Bowl MVP (5 times), appearances (10 times), regular season career passing yards (89,214 yards), and touchdown passes (649 times).
Even this season, Brady led his team, Tampa Bay, to the playoff stage, but the team was eliminated in the wild card round, the first round of the playoffs.
