The quarterback, who is the most successful NFL player ever, potentially played his final game ever last Sunday when the Buccaneers lost 30-27 to the LA Rams in the NFL divisional round of the play-offs at Raymond James Stadium.

Brady has spent the majority of his career at the New England Patriots playing for the franchise between 2001 and 2019 where he made nine Super Bowl appearances and won six. He extended this record in 2020 when he led the Buccaneers to the Super Bowl and once again won.

Regardless of the rumours, his incredible dynasty in the sport is unparalleled and news of his possible retirement has been greeted on social media as a celebration of his career and his remarkable achievements.

There are also plenty of memes about Brady's retirement as many marked his retirement in a comical fashion.

Brady's last touchdown ever is likely to be played back for decades to come.

The advances in computer game graphics show just how long Brady's career has lasted.

Brady had previously stated on the Let's Go podcast in October that his family would play a major factor in his decision to retire. At the time he said: "it's a very difficult issue to reconcile without just saying, ''Hey, it's time to retire.'' And I think there's, you know, we're coming to the end here too, so I don't want to miss any of the kids' stuff."
