UPDATED: Reports are going around that Brady hasn't told his current team or others close to him that he is indeed retiring. His website TB12.com who had wished him success, has since deleted the post online.

Some breaking news on this Saturday afternoon and it involves a part-time resident of the state of Montana.

It is being reported by the NFL Network that Tom Brady, considered the greatest quarterback of all time is walking away and retiring from the National Football League after 22 years.  Brady owns multiple NFL records and has been a household name for over 2 decades.  Currently, the internet is abuzz with different reports and rumors swirling around Brady, who just completed his second season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Brady, who has competed in ten Superbowls and won seven over his career spent the majority of his career with the New England Patriots, winning six NFL Championships with the Patriots.

Brady, who owns a home in the Big Sky area with his wife Gisele, is known to spend time here in Montana throughout the year. With his retirement can we expect to see Mr. and Mrs. Brady along with the family around Montana more?

The California native played college football at the University of Michigan and was famously drafted in the 6th round.  He first rose to fame after filling in for an injured Drew Bledsoe, (another player with a home here in Montana). Brady took the team through the playoffs and on to the Superbowl where the Patriots were victorious.
