Tom Brady’s career has come to an end after 22 legendary seasons in the NFL. The 44-year-old leaves the game of football as the most decorated player in NFL history and is widely considered to be the greatest of all time. Over those two-plus decades, the 199th overall pick in the 2000 NFL draft was able to completely rewrite the record books and now owns nearly every meaningful accolade. 

As Brady closes the book on his playing career, let’s run through all of the notable records he owns, which include some that may never be broken in the NFL again.
