Fernando Jeronimo | Advertising Manager


On Saturday, January 29, 2022, rumors came out that Tom Brady is retiring but later it was said that he has not officially retired yet, but this year has been different than every other year. He mentioned that he will need to think about his future in his postgame interview after suffering a 30-27 loss to the Rams in the NFC Divisional game.
