Tom Brady: ‘I’m retiring for good’

Tom Brady announced Wednesday morning that he retiring “for good” from football.

Brady, 45, initially retired from professional football last Feb. 1. He changed his mind 40 days later and returned to play the 2022 season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

On Wednesday, Brady took to social media and said the following in a video:

“Good morning, guys. I’ll get to the point right away. I’m retiring for good.

“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. I won’t be longwinded. You only get one super emotional retirement essay, and I used mine up last year, so really thank you guys so much to every single one of you for supporting me.

“My family, my friends, my teammates, my competitors — I could go on forever, there’s too many,” Brady said in the video, fighting back tears. “Thank you guys for allowing me to live my absolute dream. I wouldn’t change a thing. Love you all.”

Brady concludes one of the most decorated NFL careers of all time. Among his records: most Super Bowl championships (seven), most regular-season wins by a quarterback (251), most postseason wins by a quarterback (35), most passes completed (7,753), most pass attempts (12,050), most passing yards (89,214) and most passing touchdowns (649).

He is a three-time NFL Most Valuable Player and a 15-time Pro Bowl selection.

Brady spent his first 20 seasons with the New England Patriots, then joined the Tampa Bay Buccaneers ahead of the 2020 season and led them to a Super Bowl championship in his first campaign.

In 2021, he led the NFL in passing yards (5,316) and passing touchdowns (43) before those numbers fell to 4,694 and 25, respectively, in 2022 as the Buccaneers finished 8-9. Tampa Bay made the playoffs as the champion of the weak NFC South before getting hammered by Dallas in the wild-card round.

Report: Dolphins not expected to pursue Tom Brady

The Miami Dolphins are not expected to pursue Tom Brady should the seven-time Super Bowl champion quarterback opt to return for a 24th NFL season, ESPN reported on Sunday.

Per the report, the Dolphins are committed to quarterback Tua Tagovailoa and pleased with his development under head coach Mike McDaniel.

Brady, who will turn 46 in August, stands to become an unrestricted free agent at the conclusion of the league year.

On his “Let’s Go!” podcast with SiriusXM earlier this week, Brady went with blue material in response to Jim Gray’s question about his timeline for a decision about whether to play next season.

“Jim, if I knew what I was going to (expletive) do, I would’ve already (expletive) done it. I’m taking it a day at a time,” Brady said.

And when Gray asked if he was “antagonized by the question,” Brady said “You’re scratchy. You’re scratchy. I appreciate you asking. Thank you.”

Brady retired briefly last February, only to return to the team while going through a divorce from his supermodel wife Gisele Bundchen.

Brady previously had been linked to the Dolphins, with the NFL punishing the club last year for tampering. The league took away Miami’s first-round pick in the 2023 NFL Draft and its third-round selection in 2024.

Whenever he finally decides to step away, Brady will conclude one of the most decorated NFL careers of all time. Among his records: most Super Bowl championships (seven), most regular-season wins by a quarterback (251), most postseason wins by a quarterback (35), most passes completed (7,753), most pass attempts (12,050), most passing yards (89,214) and most passing touchdowns (649).

He is a three-time NFL Most Valuable Player and a 15-time Pro Bowl selection.

Brady spent his first 20 seasons with the New England Patriots, then joined the Tampa Bay Buccaneers ahead of the 2020 season and led them to a Super Bowl championship in his first campaign.

In 2021, he led the NFL in passing yards (5,316) and passing touchdowns (43) before those numbers fell to 4,694 and 25, respectively, in 2022 as the Buccaneers went 8-9. Tampa Bay made the playoffs as the champion of the weak NFC South before getting hammered by Dallas in the wild-card round.

Tagovailoa, 24, led the NFL with a 105.5 passer rating in 2022, completing 64.8 percent of his passes for a career-high totals in yards (3,548) and touchdowns (25). He also had eight interceptions in 13 starts.

The Dolphins face a May 1 deadline to exercise the fifth-year option on Tagovailoa’s rookie contract.

Drafted No. 5 overall by Miami in 2020, Tagovailoa has passed for 8,015 yards with 52 TDs and 23 picks in 36 games (34 starts).

Bucs’ Todd Bowles: No decision yet on OC Byron Leftwich

Less than 12 months after being considered a leading candidate for multiple NFL head-coaching vacancies, Byron Leftwich faces an uncertain future in his role as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ offensive coordinator.

Bucs coach Todd Bowles was asked specifically on Monday if a decision has been made to move on from Leftwich, less than a day after Tampa Bay’s season came to an end in a 34-14 home loss to the Dallas Cowboys.

“No, there hasn’t been any decision,” Bowles said.

Leftwich faced increased criticism as the Bucs’ season wore on. Tampa Bay finished 8-9 in the regular season and reached the playoffs courtesy of winning the woeful NFC South.

The Bucs ranked 15th in the NFL in total offense at 346.7 yards per game. But that was a byproduct of throwing the ball a league-high 44.2 times per game while often forced to rally from behind.

Tampa Bay ranked last in the league in rushing at 76.9 yards per game on the ground — 10 yards fewer than the next-worst rushing attack that belonged to the three-win Houston Texans. The Bucs also averaged only 18.4 points per game, 25th in the NFL.

Bowles said Leftwich’s performance will be evaluated along with that of every player and coach in the organization.

“I don’t have any assessment,” Bowles said. “Right now, we are evaluating players. We meet as a coaching staff later in the week.

“I’ll meet with individual coaches as well as the staff, which we do every year, and we will make those assessments then.”

Last February, Leftwich was believed to be a front-runner for the Jaguars’ head-coaching vacancy before pulling his name from consideration. He also interviewed with the Chicago Bears and the New Orleans Saints.

Leftwich ultimately remained with the Bucs, but he quickly became a focus of intense criticism.

Tampa Bay’s offense dropped from 61 touchdowns in 2021 to only 31 during the regular season. The Bucs then fell behind 24-0 to the Cowboys in a game that wasn’t even as close as the lopsided score.

The organization could undergo a number of changes this offseason, with the biggest question being the future of 45-year-old quarterback Tom Brady. But Bowles said he does not envision a rebuilding project while declining to speculate on whether there would be changes among his coaching staff.

“I will meet with the staff at the end of the week, and we’ll talk about everything then,” he said. “I don’t want to sit here and say we are talking about things when I haven’t even talked over things with my coaches.

“We do our yearly assessment just like we do with the players.”

Tom Brady Next Team Odds: Two favored among dozen

Tom Brady might be noncommittal about his future plans, but oddsmakers clearly believe he will return for a 24th NFL season.

After Monday night’s lopsided season-ending loss to Dallas, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback was asked about his future.

“I’m going to go home and get a good night’s sleep, at least as good as I can tonight,” he said. “There has been a lot of focus on this game. It will be one day at a time. Truly.”

By the time Brady had woken up, SportsBetting.ag had already placed -150 odds that he will play in 2023 compared to +110 odds that he will retire.

If Brady does decide to chase an eighth Super Bowl ring, the next question becomes with whom?

He will be a free agent after the Super Bowl, and there may be several suitors for a quarterback who will turn 46 during training camp in August.

The sportsbook installed the Raiders as the most likely destination for Brady late last month, and Las Vegas remains the favorite should he leave Tampa Bay. Sin City leads a group of 12 potential NFL teams SportsBetting.ag is offering Brady odds on.

That includes the Miami Dolphins, who quickly shifted to +600 after being offered at +1000 to begin Tuesday. The Dolphins courted Brady last offseason, which ultimately cost them a draft pick for tampering, and Miami could make another run at him, with Tua Tagovailoa suffering multiple concussions this season.

Tom Brady Next Team Odds
Las Vegas Raiders (+300)
New York Jets (+350)
New England Patriots (+500)
Miami Dolphins (+600)
San Francisco 49ers (+700)
Indianapolis Colts (+750)
Baltimore Ravens (+900)
New Orleans Saints (+1000)
Washington Commanders (+1000)
Atlanta Falcons (+1100)
Tennessee Titans (+1200)
Houston Texans (+2500)

The Raiders are coached by longtime New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels. It would appear to be a natural fit, with Las Vegas seeking a veteran quarterback to replace the outgoing Derek Carr. The Raiders feature an offense with a bevy of playmakers that includes Davante Adams, Josh Jacobs, Hunter Renfrow and Darren Waller.

The Jets are another interesting possibility as they, too, seek stability at quarterback. Brady would get to face Patriots coach Bill Belichick twice a year, but does he want to go to a division stacked with playoff-caliber teams and play his home games outdoors in the Northeast at 46 years old?

The Jets do have an emerging young team, and owner Woody Johnson recently said he is willing to write the check to bring in the “missing piece.” That being a veteran quarterback following the struggles of former first-round pick Zach Wilson this season.

The sportsbook is also offering odds on who will be under center for both teams to start next season, with Brady among the top three favorites for the Raiders and Jets.

Raiders Week 1 QB
Tom Brady (+300)
Jimmy Garoppolo (+325)
Lamar Jackson (+650)
Aaron Rodgers (+750)
Jarrett Stidham (+800)
Anthony Richardson (+1000)
Bryce Young (+1100)
Matt Ryan (+1200)
Will Levis (+1200)
Baker Mayfield (+1400)
CJ Stroud (+1400)

Jets Week 1 QB
Derek Carr (+250)
Jimmy Garoppolo (+350)
Tom Brady (+350)
Lamar Jackson (+450)
Mike White (+550)
Aaron Rodgers (+750)
Zach Wilson (+900)
Bryce Young (+1600)
CJ Stroud (+1600)
Will Levis (+1600)
Baker Mayfield (+3300)
Joe Flacco (+6600)

The upcoming NFL quarterback carousel could be one of the most interesting in recent memory depending on who ultimately becomes available.

Last February, Brady retired. He unretired 40 days later.

He’s unlikely to go that route again, but you can bet on that possibility as well.

Will Tom Brady Retire/Un-Retire?
No (-2000)
Yes (+700)

And with that, the wait-and-see game with Brady begins. He left little hint as he ended his postgame conference on Monday night focused on the Bucs.

“I love this organization, it’s a great place to be,” he said.

Buccaneers WR Russell Gage moving extremities, still hospitalized

Buccaneers wide receiver Russell Gage remains hospitalized with head and neck injuries sustained Monday night in Tampa Bay’s playoff loss to the Dallas Cowboys.

The team said Tuesday morning that Gage, 26, sustained a concussion and neck injury that required further testing.

“Russell was taken to a local hospital where he remained overnight for additional testing and observation. Russell has had movement in all extremities and will continue to undergo additional testing today. We will provide additional information as it becomes available,” the Buccaneers said in a release.

Gage was carted off the field at Raymond James Stadium on a backboard with 2:55 left in the host Buccaneers’ NFC wild-card game.

After going after a pass from Tom Brady that fell incomplete, Gage was unable to stand on his feet on multiple occasions. Cowboys safety Donovan Wilson’s right arm smacked into the side of Gage’s helmet.

Gage departed the Buccaneers’ regular-season finale against the Atlanta Falcons on Jan. 8 with a lower-back injury.

The LSU product caught two passes for 10 yards in Monday’s game. Gage had 51 catches for 426 yards and five touchdowns in the 2022 regular season, his first year in Tampa Bay after he opened his NFL career by playing four seasons for the Falcons.

In 74 career regular-season games (25 starts), Gage has 244 receptions for 2,491 yards and 14 touchdowns.

Wild Card Weekend: Cowboys-Bucs Preview, Props, Prediction

The Dallas Cowboys and Tampa Bay Buccaneers close out Wild Card Weekend with the sixth rematch of a regular-season contest.

The familiarity between opponents has helped spark a high level of drama and some surprisingly competitive games through the first five playoff games. However, the Bucs’ victory over the Cowboys came 20 weeks ago in a 19-3 season-opening victory at Dallas.

That was the seventh time Bucs quarterback Tom Brady has beaten the Cowboys, who have never gotten the better of the seven-time Super Bowl champion.

Dallas (12-5) is the superior team on paper, but Tampa Bay (8-9) is playing host to the game courtesy of winning the woeful NFC South. The Cowboys are also coming off a disappointing 26-6 loss at Washington to close out the regular season.

Dallas is still a 2.5-point favorite on the road. The public has been split at BetMGM, where the line opened at 3.0 and has since seen the total spread-line bets split, while the Bucs have a slight edge with 51 percent of the money backing them.

The Cowboys have been the more popular play at DraftKings, where they have been backed by 51 percent of the spread-line bets and 61 percent of the money.

Dallas will have to reverse a lot of recent history to move on to a divisional round game at San Francisco. Not only have the Cowboys never beaten Brady, they have not won a road playoff game since 1991.

Brady has the same amount of playoff victories as the Cowboys – 35 – and Dallas has only four since the franchise’s last won a Super Bowl to end the 1995 season.

“I think we’ll pay most attention to the fact that we’ve had the opportunity to compete twice against them,” Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy said. “We have zero responsibility or time to worry about what’s happened in the past.”

PROP PICKS
Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott Anytime TD (+115 at BetMGM): The same prop at DraftKings is offering a slightly lower payout at +105 as of mid-day Monday. Elliott scored 12 touchdowns during the regular season, including at least one in nine consecutive games leading up to Week 18 when he was held out of the end zone. The Bucs allowed 4.5 yards per carry in the regular season. Bettors seeking a bigger payout can also take a hard look at Elliott +700 to score the game’s first touchdown.

Bucs RB Leonard Fournette Over 36.5 Rushing Yards (-115 at DraftKings): The Bucs passed on 78 percent of their offensive plays during the regular season as their ground game was 32nd in yards per carry (3.4) in the regular season. Tampa Bay did rush for 152 yards in the season-opening win and should get center Ryan Jansen back. Rachaad White has been sharing more of the backfield workload since midseason, but we see offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich leaning heavily on the veteran experience Fournette brings to the postseason.

Cowboys LB Micah Parsons Over 0.75 Sacks (+110 at DraftKings): This has been among the most bet-on player props at the sportsbook since opening at +125. We still like the odds of Parsons picking up at least a sack on Monday night despite registering only 1.5 over the final six regular-season games. He had 2.0 in the first meeting and the immobile Brady was dropped 22 times during the regular season. With the amount Tampa Bay relies on Brady to drop back, there should be ample opportunity for Parsons to make impact plays in the backfield.

INJURY REPORT
Cowboys: CB Trayvon Mullen (illness) was the only player ruled out on the final injury report. Parsons did not practice on Saturday due to a personal reason but is expected to play.

Bucs: OG Nick Leverett (knee/shoulder) and TE Kyle Rudolph (Knee) are doubtful. The Bucs listed nine players as questionable, including OLs Carlton Davis (shoulder), Robert Hainsey (hamstring) John Molchon (ankle) and OT Donovan Smith (foot), Ss Mike Edwards (hip), Logan Ryan (knee) and Keanu Neal (hip), LB Carl Nassib (pectoral) and DT Vita Vea (calf).

PREDICTION
The Bucs are in the playoffs because of the division they play in. They have looked old and slow much of the season and are underdogs for good reason.

Dallas has absorbed some head-scratching losses this season, including last week’s embarrassing setback at Washington. Part of the issue has been quarterback Dak Prescott’s issues with turnovers, but the Cowboys should be able to play a high-percentage passing game working off the tandem of Elliott and Tony Pollard hammering away at that soft Bucs run defense.

Desmond Ridder fuels Falcons past Buccaneers

Rookie Desmond Ridder threw his first two career touchdown passes and Tyler Allgeier rushed for 135 yards as the Atlanta Falcons closed a disappointing season with a 30-17 victory against the visiting Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.

Atlanta (7-10) scored all of the second half’s 20 points to avoid a solo spot in last place in the NFC South.

The Buccaneers (8-9), who clinched the NFC South and a home playoff game a week earlier, were largely tuning up for the postseason. Tampa Bay had 222 yards of total offense.

Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady threw for one touchdown on 13-for-17 passing for 84 yards in first-half action. Blaine Gabbert replaced Brady late in the first half. Gabbert ended up 6-for-8 for 29 yards and Kyle Trask was 3-for-9 for 23 yards.

Ridder, a rookie in his fourth NFL game, completed 19 of 30 passes for 224 yards without an interception. Allgeier had 24 carries.

Younghoe Koo had three field goals, including a 51-yarder in the fourth quarter, to help Atlanta end the season with back-to-back home victories.

The Falcons finished with a 6-3 home record and a season split with Tampa Bay.

Ridder’s 3-yard touchdown pass to Olamide Zaccheaus put the Falcons on top with 51 seconds to play in the third quarter. Atlanta stretched its lead to 27-17 on Cordarrelle Patterson’s 2-yard run with 8:07 to play.

There was a different tone for most of the first half.

The Buccaneers drove 70 yards on 10 plays on the game’s opening possession for a touchdown, with Brady throwing to tight end Kyle Rudolph for an 8-yard scoring play.

The Falcons were up 10-7 by the end of the first quarter. Ridder threw 2 yards to MyCole Pruitt for a touchdown and Koo booted a 49-yard field goal less than three minutes later.

The Buccaneers were back ahead by halftime, holding a 17-10 edge. Ryan Succop kicked a 41-yard field goal before Gabbert found Russell Gage for a 3-yard score with 1:46 left in the half.

At 45, Tom Brady continues to rewrite record book

Tom Brady, who holds every significant quarterback record, broke two NFL records on Sunday in a brief appearance for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers against the Atlanta Falcons.

With the Buccaneers already locked into the No. 4 seed in the NFC playoffs, Brady played long enough to establish new standards for most completions (490) and attempts (733) in a regular season.

For the game, he completed 13 of 17 passes for 84 yards and a touchdown before giving way to Blaine Gabbert.

In his 23rd season, the 45-year-old Brady broke the record for completions (485) he set just last year. His 733 pass attempts surpassed the 727 mark established by Matthew Stafford with the Detroit Lions in 2012.

NFC South champion Bucs close regular season in Atlanta

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers reached one of their goals with one game to spare. They’ll play against the Falcons on Sunday afternoon in Atlanta to finish the regular season.

“We’ve had an up-and-down year,” Buccaneers coach Todd Bowles said. “We’ve had some tough losses. We’ve had some tough wins. We’ve earned it.”

Tampa Bay has won consecutive NFC South titles for the first time in club history. The Buccaneers (8-8) will be playing a week after clinching the divisional crown and a home playoff spot for the opening week of the postseason.

The Falcons (6-10) will try to avoid last place in the division. They’re tied with the Carolina Panthers, who visit the 7-9 New Orleans Saints on Sunday. Those three teams could end up tied just a game behind Tampa Bay with Carolina and Atlanta victories to end the season.

The Buccaneers had to have a playoff mentality the past few weeks in what seemed like must-win situations. So the trip to Atlanta will be a deviation from that.

“All the games matter to us,” Bowles said. “We try to win them all. We’re going into it with everybody expecting to play.”

Bowles said there’s no time to relax because that lack of urgency could seep into the mindset for a team that needs to shore up several areas.

“You want to be cleaned up by the time you get to the playoffs,” Bowles said. “If they take that week off, they’re not going to be ready the next week. We just want to play a solid overall game.”

There are a couple of depth-chart changes for the Buccaneers, with running back Rachaad White and tight end Cade Otton listed as starters. White has been pretty much sharing the main role with veteran Leonard Fournette.

Receiver Mike Evans has been racking up accolades at a record clip. Coming off his second career 200-yard receiving day (10 catches, 207 yards, three touchdowns) last Sunday in the team’s comeback win over Carolina, he has nine seasons in a row with at least 1,000 receiving yards.

“It’s a credit to his work ethic,” Bowles said. “He still competes to this day.”

After last week’s 20-19 home victory against Arizona, the Falcons will have a chance to do something they’ve done only once previously this season — win back-to-back games.

The Buccaneers and Falcons both posted fourth-quarter comebacks last week. Tampa Bay’s division clincher was more notable, with quarterback Tom Brady (425 passing yards, three TD passes) putting together another late-game rally to overcome the Panthers.

But the comeback for the Falcons was valuable for Atlanta rookie QB Desmond Ridder. In his first career win as an NFL starter, he showed that he could come through in the clutch as well.

“If you want to be a big-time quarterback, you need to win on critical third downs in two-minute situations and go win the game like he did right there,” Falcons coach Arthur Smith said.

Ridder said it was important to set the right tone.

“You want to let (teammates) see that you’re calm and composed and ready to execute,” Ridder said.

Ridder said the past few weeks as the starting quarterback have been ideal learning situations. Those are things he’s trying to build.

Smith said Ridder has shown signs of what it takes to be a starter in the NFL. His first-season audition comes to a close with Sunday’s game.

Tampa Bay defeated the Falcons 21-15 in the fifth week of the season in Tampa, Fla.
