Tom Brady is officially calling it a career and announced his retirement from the NFL “for good.”

Brady shared the news in a brief video to social media saying, “Good morning, guys. I’ll get to the point right away: I’m retiring for good. I know the process was a pretty big deal last time, so when I woke up this morning, I figured I’d just press record and let you guys know first.”


He continued, “I won’t be long-winded. You only get one super-emotional retirement essay, and I used mine up last year. I really thank you guys so much, to every single one of your who supported me. My family, my friends, my teammates, my competitors. I could go on forever — there’s too many.”

Brady concluded, while getting choked up, “Thank you guys for allowing me to live my absolute dream. I wouldn’t change a thing. Love you all.”

Tom Brady: This Instagram Model With An MBA Is A Big Fan

Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen filed for divorce last year. But that hasn’t stopped the media from speculating about who Brady’s next girlfriend might be. Model and Instagram star Veronika Rajek posted about her love for Brady a few weeks ago. And that has led people to speculate that she’s interested in him.

She posted an image of herself wearing a Tampa Bay Buccaneers jersey with Brady’s #12 on it. She wrote, “I saw the LEGEND and if somebody asks me again if I love Brady, yes I love him, and show me somebody who doesn’t. Even his haters love him because they know he is the GOAT.”

According to gossip site The U.S. Sun, Rajek is a former Miss Slovakia competitor and she has 3.5 million followers on Instagram. The Sun reports that Rajek began modeling at the age of 16 and was a track and field star during high school in her town of Vranov nad Topľou.

The Sun reports that she is married to Slovak bobsleigh competitor Viktor Rajek, and they have been married since 2019. Veronika notes in her Instagram bio that she has a MBA. The Sun reported that she says that has two Master’s degrees – one in Business Administration from Warsaw University, and one in Safety and Security management. Celeb Heath says that “She attended The Institute of Education, Consulting and Informatization and Collegium Humanum Warsaw Management University, and the University of Security Management in Košice. She has a Master’s in Science and a Master’s in Business Administration.” No credible outlets have verified her MBA status but we’ll take her at her word on this one.

She has apparently clashed with Instagram. Barstool Sports reported that she’s been accused of being a “catfish” because she’s too attractive to be real. The Mirror quoted her as saying, “People say beautiful people have it easy but I have it worse as people make it harder for me because I’m beautiful.” They note that Veronika does not drink or party and works out five times a week. They quote her as saying, “I don’t have many friends but I feel good. If you feel beautiful the way you are, then you are beautiful. If you feel confident in your body and you are plus-sized, then just be confident.”
