Tom Brady officially called it a career on Tuesday, announcing his retirement from the NFL. This news comes just over a week after the Los Angeles Rams handed him his final loss, beating the Buccaneers in the divisional round of the playoffs.
Brady nearly led the Bucs to a miraculous comeback with three touchdown drives in the final 16 minutes, including a 55-yard bomb to Mike Evans with 3:20 remaining in the game.
That turned out to be Brady’s final touchdown pass and Jalen Ramsey couldn’t help but laugh about the fact that he was the one to allow it. He can laugh about it now because thankfully, the Rams still held on to win, 30-27.
The best QB of all time retired, DANG… he threw his last TD on me 😂

Ramsey has a tremendous amount of respect for Brady, which was abundantly clear during their postgame chat in Week 3.
“I respect you so much. I just love playing against you, man. It’s an honor, man. You’re the G.O.A.T. for real. Appreciate you,” Ramsey told Brady in a mic’d-up moment on the field.
