Gisele Bündchen Reacts to Tom Brady’s Retirement Video
Early Wednesday, NFL great Tom Brady announced that he is retiring from football “for good.”
In a video message to fans, he said, “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.”
He went on to joke, “I won’t be long-winded. You only get one super-emotional retirement essay, and I used mine up last year.”
