Tom Brady will be taking a historic step in his football career.
The six-time Super Bowl champion quarterback and three-time NFL MVP announced Tuesday he will not return to the New England Patriots after a 20-year run with the franchise.
Brady did not reveal which team he would sign with or anything else about his plans beyond his intention to move on from the organization.
“To all my teammates, coaches, executives and staff, Coach (Bill) Belichick, RKK (owner Robert Kraft) and the Kraft family and the entire organization,” Brady wrote on a post to his social media channels. “I want to say thank you for the past twenty years of my life and the daily commitment to winning and creating a winning culture built on great values. … Although my football journey will take place elsewhere, I appreciate everything that we have achieved and am grateful for our incredible TEAM accomplishments.”
