Thank You Tom Brady Shirt. Six-time Super Bowl winner, who is considered the greatest NFL midfielder in history, said he would not renew his contract with the New England Patriots, ending one of the most successful partnerships in sport.
The 42-year-old has spent his entire 20-year NFL career with the Patriots, leading the franchise for nine Super Bowls with Brady as a midfielder and Bill Belichick as head coach.
“I don’t know what my football future will be like, but it’s time for me to open a new phase,” Brady posted on his social media account, in a statement entitled “Forever a Man. Patriot”.
Brady is expected to agree to the terms with Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to reports from Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network and Adam Schefter of ESPN.
Neither representatives of Tampa Bay Buccaneers nor Tom Brady responded to CNN’s request for comment.
Brady, who turns 43 this summer, will become an unlimited free agent when the free agency opens on Wednesday at 4pm. ET.
