Tom Brady has officially confirmed his retirement from the NFL, bringing an end to his 22-year playing career in the NFL.
The 44-year-old is widely regarded as the greatest quarterback in NFL history following a glittering career that saw him win six Super Bowls during his time with the New England Patriots before adding another ring with Tampa Bay Buccaneers (12/1 to win Super Bowl LVII) last year.
However, following the Bucs’ defeat to the Los Angeles Rams in this season’s playoffs, speculation gathered pace regarding Brady’s retirement, so much so that it was widely reported over the weekend that he had decided to bring his glittering career to a close.

Brady initially denied those rumours and said he was still to make a decision over whether he will continue playing next season.
However, the QB has now revealed in an Instagram post that he has decided to call time on his illustrious career.
Brady’s final game in the NFL turned out to be against the Los Angeles Rams, who are one win away from Super Bowl glory after beating the San Francisco 49ers in Sunday’s NFC Championship game.
That has set up a clash with AFC champions Cincinnati Bengals in Super Bowl LVI on February 13 and the Rams will boast home advantage for that contest, as it is being staged at their SoFi Stadium (Bengals 17/10, Rams 1/2 – Money Line).
