TOM BRADY MAKES IT OFFICIAL, RETIRES FROM NFL AFTER 22 YEARS

Not only does Brady personally own more Super Bowl rings than every NFL franchise, he was a five-time Super Bowl MVP. He has 15 Pro Bowl appearances, three All-Pro selections and three MVP awards, and he was named to the Hall of Fame All-Decade Team for the 2000s and 2010s.

He was initially selected by the New England Patriots in the 2000 draft and spent nearly two decades with the team before joining the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Love him or hate him, fans got to see what anyone would love to watch for more than two decades: a winning quarterback always at the top of his game putting together what seemed like two careers in one, winning championship after championship and keeping his teams in contention for a title year in and year out.
