Tom Brady Kicks Off April Fool's Day By Announcing His Retirement

Tom Brady Kicks Off April Fool's Day By Announcing His Retirement

New England Patriots' Tom Brady passes against the Los Angeles Rams during the first half of the NFL Super Bowl 53 football game Sunday, Feb. 3, 2019, in Atlanta.

New England almost fell apart in panic, thanks to Tom Brady's first ever tweet. The latter had a glimmer of hope today as Tom Brady made his Twitter debut.

Brady, 41, is coming off another Super Bowl victory - this time over the Los Angeles Rams.

"I'm retiring", Brady wrote in his first-ever tweet on Monday.

Some Patriots fans forgot April Fool's Day is the internet's holiest of days, and took the joke seriously.




That joke led to some quality reactions from Julian Edelman and Golden Tate, and resulted Brady asking a rhetorical question in his follow-up tweet.

Brady, who turns 42 in August, has addressed the subject of retirement before, saying he hopes to play until he is 45.

The six-time Super Bowl champion gained more than 100,000 followers on the social-media site within two hours of his original post.

Second, why couldn't Brady send this out from his Facebook or Instagram accounts?
