Tom Brady is letting everyone know he’s dead serious about retiring this time around … officially submitting his retirement paperwork, seemingly closing the door on a comeback.
Brady doubled down on his February 1 retirement announcement Friday … by sending an official retirement letter to the NFL and NFLPA, according to Adam Schefter.

Brady’s formal letter to the league and the union should answer any questions surrounding the 45-year-old quarterback’s future.
With TB12 officially gone from the NFL … the 7x Super Bowl-winning quarterback is a lock for the Pro Football Hall of Fame once he’s eligible in 2028.
Of course, Brady said he was “retiring for good” a couple weeks after the Cowboys defeated the Buccanneers, 31-14, at home in the wild card round of the playoffs.
“I know the process was a pretty big deal last time,” Brady said during the big announcement … “so when I woke up this morning I figured I’d just press record and let you guys know first.”
Obviously, Tom has unretired once before (40 days into retirement), saying he was coming back because he had “unfinished business.” This time, it appears the G.O.A.T. is done for good after 23 seasons in the NFL.
