Addressing his family, friends, teammates, and competitors, Brady added, “Thank you guys for allowing me to live my absolute dream. I wouldn’t change a thing.” In a superlative 23-year career with the New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Brady racked up a raft of elite records. He has the most Super Bowl wins (7), as well as the most passing touchdowns (649) and passing yards (89,214).
