Brady announced his retirement Wednesday morning after 23 legendary seasons in the NFL, the last three of which he spent in Tampa Bay.

He leaves with nearly every major passing record in NFL history, and quite a few in Bucs history, despite playing just three years with the team.

Brady’s tenure in Tampa Bay was the most successful three-year run in franchise history, with three straight playoff appearances, back-to-back division titles for the first time ever, and a second Lombardi Trophy.
