Tom Brady Announces NFL Retirement from Miami Beach

Tom Brady’s official retirement video was filmed and released on Feb 1, 2023, from Miami Beach. The shore is a mile away from his under-construction home on Indian Creek Island, an A-lister hotspot. Tom Brady and his now ex-wife Gisele Bündchen, bought the property in 2020 for $17 million, before deciding to demolish it in favor of a more environmentally friendly house. The new eco-friendly house is being constructed under the supervision of architect Scott Mitchell. 

This is the second time Brady has announced his retirement from professional football. He redacted his previous retirement announcement to play the NFL 2022-2023 season alongside Tampa Bay Buccaneers. This time around, however, Brady’s retirement is “for good”. In a tearful farewell to fans, Brady said;

I know the process was a pretty big deal last time, so when I woke up this morning I figured I’d just press record, and let you guys know first. It won’t be long-winded, you only get one super-emotional retirement essay and I used mine up last year, so. I…really thank you, guys, so much to every single one of you, for supporting me, my family, my friends, teammates, my competitors. I could go on forever. There’s too many. Thank you guys for allowing me to live my absolute dream. I wouldn’t change a thing. Love you all.”

Tom Brady’s retirement is not the end of his NFL career. The former New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback has already agreed to a $375 million, 10-year deal with Fox as an NFL analyst.
