Tom Brady isn’t shy about retiring this time

Tom Brady’s retirement is Really real this time.

The seven-time Super Bowl winner won’t be backing down when he retires, a sentiment he reiterated at his unofficial retirement party — sponsored by his NFT brand, Autograph — on Thursday.

“There’s nothing I love more than football,” Brady told the crowd, via Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times“but I have young children and they have watched enough of their dad’s games and it’s time for me to watch their games.”

Brady retired in February 2021, then changed his mind 40 days later, choosing to return for another round with the Bucs.

This time, however, the 45-year-old reiterated that he would not back down from his Feb. 1 announcement that he was done after 23 seasons in the NFL.

That hasn’t stopped the rumor mill from spinning, possibly linking him to the Dolphins – despite the three-time NFL MVP transitioning to social media posts about taking charge of his 10-year-old daughter’s new cat years, Vivian.

Brady shares Vivian and her 13-year-old son Benjamin with model Gisele Bündchen, whom he divorced midway through the 2022 Buccaneers season.

He is also co-parent to 15-year-old son Jack with his ex, actress Bridget Moynahan.

Among those in attendance at the Autograph party with Brady were running back Leonard Fournette, who was released by the Bucs on Friday, and fellow retired Rob Gronkowski.

Last week, Gronkowski — who won three Super Bowls with Brady in New England before adding another in Tampa — expressed disbelief that his quarterback would return from this one.

“I feel like Tom is definitely done playing,” he told “I haven’t spoken to him or anything about it. I don’t speak for Tom.

“From everything I saw in his retirement video and everything I feel like he just finished playing football. It was just very shocking when I heard this news the other day.

Brady previously announced he would be taking a year off before joining Fox Sports, who he signed a 10-year, $375 million contract with last offseason to join him in retirement.
