Did ESPN botch the Tom Brady retirement news?

On Saturday, ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Jeff Darlington dropped the biggest sports new leak of the year when they reported that Tom Brady was retiring after 22 seasons in the NFL.


Tom Brady is retiring from football after 22 seasons in which he won a historic seven Super Bowl titles, sources told ESPN.

When Brady, widely considered the greatest quarterback in NFL history, left the field after the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ loss to the Los Angeles Rams last weekend, he knew it was likely his final act as a football player, sources said. In the days since, he has spent time digesting that mindset and is preparing his retirement announcement along with the next chapter of his life and career, sources said.

Not only has Brady’s agent Don Yee denied the report, but his father also claims that his son is not retiring.

Bucs GM Jason Licht says he spoke to Brady and that the QB told him that he still hasn’t made up his mind about retirement.
