Tom Brady has one year on his contract left with the Bucs and he has yet to officially announce his retirement. If he does, he'll be retiring after 22 seasons

After 22 extraordinary seasons, Tom Brady has retired from the NFL, even though he still had one year on his contract left with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The GOAT might be closing the curtains on the NFL after 22 incredible seasons, and seven Super Bowls.

Don Yee, Brady's agent, released a statement after some rumors took the internet, indicating an official announcement will be made by Brady in the near future. 

"I understand the advance speculation about Tom's future," Yee said in Rapoport's statement. "Without getting into the accuracy or inaccuracy of what's being reported, Tom will be the only person to express his plans with complete accuracy. He knows the realities of the football business and planning calendar as well as anybody, so that should be soon."

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ quarterback has a year left on his contract with the team, and has not been shy to share with the NFL world that his intention is to play until he is 45 years old. 

More on Brady:

However, when the Bucs lost to the Los Angeles Rams in the divisional round last week, Brady had a different response about his retirement; he shared his gratitude with an emotional instagram post, and later said he was going to prioritize his family in deciding his future

It’s not always what I want,” he told Jim Gray on “Let’s Go!” podcast. "It's what we want as a family. And I'm gonna spend a lot of time with them and figure out in the future what's next," said Brady.

If he 44-year-old does walk away this season, he will be leaving with the most prolific career in NFL history: a seven-time Super Bowl champion, three-time NFL MVP, five-time Super Bowl MVP, two-time NFL Offensive Player of the Year, three-time first-team All-Pro honoree, three-time second-team All-Pro, 15-time Pro Bowler and 2009 Comeback Player of the Year winner. Additionally, Brady was named to the NFL's 2000s All-Decade Team, the 2010s All-Decade Team and the NFL's 100th Anniversary All-Time Team.
