I wouldn't be surprised if he wanted the rumor leaked this weekend in order to be in the spotlight during the conference championship games, and the official announcement will happen just prior to the Super Bowl, just so they'll be talking about him even though he's not playing.

 

If he can't go out with another ring, he wants to go out with as much fanfare as he can get.

 

 

That’s what I thought as well. Diva doing diva things. Bye already.

Time to raid the Bucs.  Gronk and Fournette at a minimum. If Morse retires, go after Jensen.  Suh would look mighty nice next to Oliver.  He could provide the edge this defense needs.  

 

 

Bucs are solid right now, who's to say they don't make a push for Rodgers, Wilson or Watson? They are not over the cap. They'll be in great shape if they land a Qb to keep moving forward. No fire sales yet in TB

Those guys are all free agents among many others.  And Brady retirement triggers a dead cap charge. They went all in to run it back.  It was worth it, but unless Green Bay let’s Rodgers walk and he plays for free, Bucs are in rebuild mode.

What an announcement.  All about the companies he's founded and his brand.  I admit, I wasn't thinking this would be the way it would happen.

 

Isn't this where most people would put in a word of thanks or appreciation to teammates and coaches for their help in his fantastic and prolonged career? 

He did do this before the weird company stuff

save it for the HOF Speech in 5 years and then when the Patriots have ‘Brady Night’ to retire his jersey #12.

 

There will be plenty of time to give those speeches and thanks both privately and publicly.

He did.  He thanks all of the Bucs and not a peep about the Pats

What a weird way to go out. Feels so anticlimactic with him in TB, and knowing we have arguably the best qb in the league.

 

Who would've imagined it'd be only 13 pages on this thread. How many times have we had 60page threads over some fringe pre season hero WR?! LOL. JUST. WEIRD.

Usually, when a player retires, his amortized signing bonus and his guaranteed salary are no longer due.  The team can request repayment (or, in Brady's case, since it's reported most of it was still due, stop payment).

 

This is the reason that Woods, at his retirement presser, carefully didn't use the word "retirement" but focused on how he could no longer be medically cleared to play football and how this was discovered at his exit medical - 'cuz he didn't want to return part of his last payday

 

It remains to be seen how Brady is going to handle this, but potentially, the Bucs could get a break.

I deleted that post because I found the link to where he actually did express thanks gratitude, so my post was incorrect.

So how long till he unretires lol

Its possible after camp a team lures him in for a nice 1 year deal. The camp grind is a lot of these old guys. I'm 5 years younger than Brady, work a desk job and my body still hurts most days. lol

It's pretty hilarious that he has 3 pages thanking the Bucs but 0 mention of anything related to New England

 

I noticed that.  Might speak a ton... or maybe he does a PC from New England or something and does his whole pomp and circumstance there.  

 

 

Anyways... good on Brady for not doing a dragged out thing.  You have to respect the guy, as much as we hate him.  We see now first hand how good AND lucky you need to be to make a Superbowl, and even more to win it.  Its crazy he was able to maintain that level of consistency.  Asterisks aside.
