Tom Bray officially announced his retirement Tuesday, exiting the NFL with seven Super Bowl rings in 22 seasons.

Brady captured his first six championships with the Patriots before leading the Buccaneers to a win over the Chiefs in Super Bowl LV last season. Tampa coach Bruce Arians expressed his appreciation for Brady following the QB’s retirement, noting in a statement, “it has been an honor to be his head coach.”

“Tom joined us as the greatest football player of all time, and he quickly showed everyone in our organization what that meant,” Arians said. “He set a standard and helped create a culture that took our team to the mountaintop. It has been an honor to be his head coach for the past two seasons.”
