Tom Brady’s retirement announcement thanks Tampa Bay, makes no mention of New England
TAMPA, Fla. - Tom Brady officially shared news of his retirement on Tuesday after winning seven Super Bowls during an unprecedented 22-year career, thanking many involved with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers organization in a lengthy Instagram post. But some were quick to note how the legendary NFL quarterback’s announcement made no mention of the New England Patriots — where he spent his first 20 seasons and won six Super Bowls. "This is difficult for me to write, but here it goes: I am not going to make that competitive commitment anymore," Brady, the most successful quarterback in NFL history, wrote in a nine-page post. Brady went on to thank the Buccaneers organization, his teammates, ownership, general manager Jason Licht, coach Bruce Arians, his trainer Alex Guerrero, agents Don Yee and Steve Dubin and his family in the post. However, he didn’t mention the New England Patriots, where he spent two decades and served as the centerpiece of the Patriots’ dynasty, or owner Bob Kraft. "First takeaway from Tom Brady's retirement statement: No mention of anyone with the Patriots," Ryan Hannable, a Patriots writer for local sports radio station WEEI, wrote on Twitter.Mike Girardi, a Boston-based sports journalist and reporter for NFL Network, noted the same and called it "odd."FILE IMAGES - (L) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady throws during the second quarter during the New York Giants game versus the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLII, on Feb.
