Tom Brady has established one of the greatest careers in the history of the NFL. In the NF, he has played for 2 teams – New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It is with the New England Patriots that he spent the first twenty years of his career and during the 2020 offseason, went on to sign with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He has won seven Super Bowl titles in his tenure – the most by any player in NFL history and more Super Bowl titles than any franchise. As per an NFL news resource, Brady is the only player to win an NFL title in three different decades and is the only starting quarterback to win a Super Bowl with two different franchises in each conference (Credits: NFL Sportskeeda). Brady’s career is something to awe at, as he arguably is the greatest player in NFL history.

New England Patriots (2000 – 2019)

In the 2000 NFL draft, Tom Brady was drafted in the sixth round by the New England Patriots. In his first season with the Patriots, Brady led to an incredible 11-3 record starting in the league and to the Super Bowl that very season, where he also captured his first ever Lombardi trophy. Brady then went on to lead New England to back-to-back Super Bowl wins in 2004 and 2005.

In his 20 seasons with the New England Patriots, Tom Brady helped lift the team to one of the most successful NFL teams to date. Brady won 6 Super Bowl titles with the Patriots along with 11 Conference Championships and 22 Division Championships. The 2007 regular season is one of the major highlights of his career with the Patriots where the team was undefeated (without any ties). During that season, Brady went on to achieve a career-high of 117.2 passer rating. Brady was selected in 14 Pro Bowls, became NFL MVP thrice, and was named the Super Bowl MVP 4 times during his career with the Patriots. He was also named twice to the All-decade NFL team (the 2000s and 2010s), the only player to achieve this feat, during his stay with the Patriots.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2020 – present)

Although Brady’s move to the Buccaneers was a shocker to many, he did prove everyone wrong showing he still got it and led the Buccaneers to a Super Bowl victory in his debut season. In the regular season of 2020, Tampa Bay won 11 games, and Tom Brady established a new NFL record for touchdown passes by totaling 581 touchdown passes in his career. Tom Brady has helped the Buccaneers make it to the Divisional Round of the 2021-22 playoffs by defeating the Philadelphia Eagles (31-15). Brady made two touchdown passes in the second half as Brady and the Buccaneers set their eyes on an NFC Championship spot. It was the second Super Bowl victory for the Bucs, after nearly two decades.

On February 1, 2022, Brady announced his retirement, after 22 seasons. Prior to Brady’s arrival, the franchise had an all-time playoff record of 6–9; at the time of Brady’s retirement, the all-time playoff record for Tampa Bay stood at 11–10. However, just 40 days after initially announcing his retirement, Brady announced on March 13, 2022, that he would return to the Buccaneers for the rest of the 2022 season.
