NBA players react to Tom Brady's retirement

Tom Brady, the 7-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback, officially announced his NFL retirement on Tuesday morning.

Tom Brady played 22 seasons in the NFL and amassed numerous career passing records in his career.

NFL quarterback and sports icon Tom Brady is retiring after 22 seasons, a move Brady made known via social media on Tuesday morning.

News of Bradyโ€™s pending retirement leaked Saturday. His family and the Buccaneers denied that he had made a final decision, and he said Monday night on his SiriusXM podcast he wasnโ€™t ready to finalize his plans.

Then came Tuesday morning.

The 15-time Pro Bowler walks away with one of the most decorated resumes in sports. Often regarded as the greatest of all time, Brady won seven Super Bowl championships, five Super Bowl MVPs and three NFL MVPs. He played 20 seasons with the New England Patriots before ending his career with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

While the 44-year-old signal-caller had yet to officially announce his retirement over the weekend, the recognition of his legendary career took social media by storm starting on Saturday. James Harden, Trae Young, Jayson Tatum and Ja Morant were among the NBA players to offer praise. That recognition continued on Tuesday after Brady’s official announcement.
