Although we don’t cover a lot of sports news, we occasionally will cover certain topics, and this one seemed worth mentioning. The Trump ally and NFL Quarterback for the New England Patriots who has played in 9 and won 6 super bowls is hanging it up, sort of.
It doesn’t appear that he is retiring completely yet though, but rather just moving on from the New England Patriots team itself, as far as we can see. We don’t have any information as to where he will go next as this is a breaking story.
Brady played for the Patriots since 2000. In a tweet Tom Brady fired off less than an hour ago, he said “I wanted to thank you to all of the incredible fans and Patriots supporters. MA has been my home for twenty years. It has truly been the happiest two decades I could have envisioned in my life and I have nothing but love and gratitude for my time in New England.” He goes on with a few more sentences and says he doesn’t yet know what his football future holds. See the tweet below:

It’s unclear if this is being done on his own accord, or if there was a shakeup by Bill Belichick, or Bob Kraft, the owner. All three men are allies of the president in a world where it is tough to be famous and conservative at the same time.
NESN.com reported yesterday on Brady’s relationship with Belichick and his free agency before this announcement in part:
How much does Tom Brady and Bill Belichick’s relationship play a role in the quarterback’s long-awaited free agency decision? More than you might think — at least according to one sports media host. Brady will hit the open market for the first time in his NFL career on Wednesday. While there are three teams rumored to have interest in the quarterback, including the Tampa Bay Buccaneers listed as the favorites after making their intentions “loud and clear,” there may be a bigger picture with Brady.
And it’s about why he could leave New England. As Shannon Sharpe explained Monday on “Undisputed,” the reasoning comes down to the fundamentals of relationships and competition. “Tom is running out of options that he can go that give him a legitimate opportunity,” Sharpe said. “Because as I’ve said before: This is a race between a 68-year-old at the start of the season coach Belichick and a 43-year-old Tom Brady at the start of the season. Who can get to the Lombardi finish line first?
