  After twenty years with the New England Patriots, Tom Brady has announced he will be leaving the team. Through several posts on Instagram, he shared heartfelt letters thanking those he has played with and who have supported him, saying his final goodbyes to the only team he has played for throughout his entire football career thus far.

  An incredibly accomplished player, Brady has had 41 playoff starts since 2001, the year he became the Patriots’ starting quarterback and his second year on the team. He has also collected six Super Bowl rings from their wins in 2002, 2004, 2005, 2015, 2017, and 2019. Overall, Brady has had a successful run, to say the least, and his decision to leave was uncalled for. Brady’s original plan was to play until he reached the age of 45, but at 42, he and the Patriots had difficulty agreeing on a contract extension. 

  Just hours after announcing that he will be moving on from the Patriots, Brady has made an agreement to play for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers official. This is predicted to be a long-term commitment, and he is projected to stay with the Buccaneers for years to come.
