After winning his first Super Bowl with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2021, his 7th in his NFL career, Brady revealed in an interview that he was asked by his wife on the field, “What more do you have to prove?”
Over the summer of 2022, Brady announced he was retiring from football, a decision that earned him dozens of shout-outs from former teammates, coaches, and friends. He then un-retired 40 days later.
On July 20, Brady posted a seemingly lackluster (compared to years past) message to his wife for her birthday. He thanked her for “inspiring me with your honesty and authenticity.”
