Tom Brady Announces Retirement After 23 Seasons

It's over.

We think, at least.

Tom Brady has announced his retirement from the NFL.

Brady announced the news via his personal Twitter account, saying "I'm retiring. For good."

Brady retires at age 45 after 23 seasons in the NFL, as the league's all-time career leader in passing yards (89,214), passing touchdowns (649), Super Bowls (10) and most of all championships (seven).

He made a joke about last year's "retirement'' when he said, "you only get one super emotional retirement essay and I used mine up last year."

Brady acknowledged this past season's back-and-forth decisions on whether or not to leave the game and said there would be none of that this time around.

He is the only player to beat all 32 teams, and owns basically every postseason quarterback record. His seven Super Bowls are more than all 32 NFL franchises.

Tom Brady is finally done. What an amazing career.
