It was a betrayal for many who believed the 44-year-old, who advocated his longevity all year long, would stay till his 50s.

Elite athletes like Patrick Mahomes and Julian Edelman also tuned in to bid the GOAT goodbye. However, a few moments later, it was revealed that Tom Brady is not even close to calling a retirement. Sports reporter Kylen Mills reported, “Tom Brady Sr. tells KRON4 News, that his son wasn’t retiring. Brady Sr. says an online publication started circulating an unsubstantiated rumor. However, a number of NFL insiders are now reporting it.”

With that news, the whole internet regained its calm. However, a new trend set foot in which the netizens started to troll Adam Schefter to break the news inaccurately. Later Adam Schefter took to Twitter to cut down the rumors and shared a note from Tom Brady’s agent Don Yee denying the veracity of the matter.
