I agree. Hoping in a year or two, since there will no longer be a conflict, we can start to see him more in connection to the Pats, but not this year for sure
There are others in the argument(Jordan, Ruth,), but I agree. Incredible dominance, playing the most demanding position in American team sports. What an incredible 20 years he gave us. Can’t wait to see him honored at Gillette. That will be unreal. The greatest Boston athlete of all time as well.I definitely wanted one more year. But he went out at 44 leading the NFL in yards and TDs.
No regrets. He's the best professional sports player in history.
Amazon will offer him a blank check, maybe literally, to be the face of Thursday nights.
I was hoping he'd play until he was older than me but that's not happening nowWell shit there goes the one guy in the league older than me.
Michigan guy Schefter broke it and Edelman has tweeted about it so while not a full confirmation it seems pretty solidIt will be so weird without TB12 embarassing defenses next year. We have been blessed to witness him as our QB for 20 years.
Has this been confirmed anywhere though?
Gronk retires in 3, 2, 1..................Tampa probably becomes irrelevant once again.
I'm just guessing, who knows until/unless he explicitly tells us. Makes a lot of sense to me that, as soon as he won a title after going somewhere else, he felt like he truly had nothing left to prove and couldn't rationalize continuing to prioritize himself and his football career over his family and other interests.Honestly I don’t buy this. I think he just wanted to keep playing and do things more his way.
I think there is one team that could convince him to play one more season and even then not 50% chance, more like 49I kind of expected this but am still shocked for some reason. I do wonder if the situation in Tampa, which appeared to deteriorate towards the end, was better if he would still be retiring.
Any chance he has change of heart?
I am happy for her and his children he made the decision to retire.Definitely think Gisele pushed this more than ever but he had nothing left to prove.
saw the Jules tweet after. Just interesting as Tb12 has become so twitter / ig involved he didnt break the news himselfMichigan guy Schefter broke it and Edelman has tweeted about it so while not a full confirmation it seems pretty solid
Yeah, and let him take a snap.One-day contract.
Get it done.

If you're going to make Gronk do math, it might take a whileGronk retires in 3, 2, 1..................
"But I'm special!!"If you're going to make Gronk do math, it might take a while
Didn't he sign an extension so he's still under contract for another year?One-day contract.
Get it done.

Not that the Bucs would want compensation, but there might be a technicality to work aroundDidn't he sign an extension so he's still under contract for another year?
NFL put it on their crawl like 4 minutes ago. They were sleeping!Credit to SOSH tho…saw it here first and only after did I get like 15 push notifications
If he hasn’t told the Bucs or Arians yet, that sort it speaks volumes about his relationship with them.
Yes, technically he's still a Buc if I am not mistaken, I'll defer to the salary cap experts on this one.Didn't he sign an extension so he's still under contract for another year?
Because I can imagine him trying to scheme to get out of Tampa to play one more year for some other team but he has to get cut first. Sign with a team at training camp or something.Not that the Bucs would want compensation, but there might be a technicality to work around
Nah ... this is itBecause I am imagine him trying to scheme to get out of Tampa to play one more year for some other team but he has to get cut first. Sign with a team at training camp or something.
It’s official if the official NFL twitter account tweeted it out
But unlike so many, there's little doubt he *could* have.You could see it coming - never did make it 45 but the greatest ever to play. .
Of all of the crazy facts about Brady’s career that might be the craziest. Never took the field once in 22 years out of contention for the Super Bowl.Won’t happen. He walks away as an MVP candidate, who never played a game out of contention for a championship.
