Ryan McKean, Senior Multimedia Editor

On Feb. 1, former Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady retired from the National Football League (NFL) for the second time. Many believe that this time Brady will not be making a return. In 2020, Brady retired after winning a seventh Super Bowl, but then unretired and returned to the Buccaneers in the offseason. 

Brady is often referred to as the greatest football player to ever step out on the gridiron, having the most Super Bowl wins ever by a single player, three NFL most valuable player awards,14 Pro Bowl appearances and three first-team all-pro. These are only some of the awards that Tom Brady achieved in his 23-year tenure as an NFL quarterback.

The soon-to-be Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback in five years, was best known for being the New England Patriots quarterback for the majority of his career but ended it playing for the Buccaneers. Brady won six Super Bowls with the Patriots and one with the Buccaneers.
