Tom Brady returns, joy returns to the NFL. Brady’s retirement did not last long, since a little more than 6 weeks after announcing his retirement, he reversed the decision and will return to play with the Tampa Bay Bucaneers for his 23rd season in the NFL.

Brady’s 7 championship rings demonstrate the winning spirit of the quarterback, but also the legendary New England Patriots QB is one of the examples of the greatest healthy longevity in a sport. Proof of this are his amazing numbers, which he will seek to expand in this 2022-2023 NFL season.
the impossible records
Being on the floor for 22 seasons has allowed Brady to put up some of the most astounding numbers in league history. For starters, Brady is the QB with the most games played in the regular season with 316 (he could reach 332 if he plays all year) and in the playoffs with 46.

In addition, Brady is the player with the most passes attempted in league history with 11,317 attempts over 22 seasons, but that also translates into the player with the most passes completed with 7,263 (retired Drew Brees appears second listed with 7124). Brady is also the player who has completed the most passes in a single season, registering 485 (and this he did in 2021 at 43 years of age).
Brady will also continue to add yards to his passes, currently registering 84,520 yards in his career, a number that could approach 90,000 yards this year.
But the NFL is a scoring game and there is no quarterback that comes close to the 624 touchdown passes that Brady has achieved throughout his more than successful career, this has also translated into being the leading quarterback 5 times in TD passes in the league and the only player in history to have recorded 5 TDs in the same quarter.
A team that will not be at all happy with the news of Brady is the Buffalo Bills, the team that Brady has won the most times in his career, defeating them 33 times. And if we talk about victories, there is no player in the league who has won as much as him, he has 243 wins in the regular season and 35 in the Playoffs, for a round figure of 278 wins for only 38 losses.

The old man of the league
Staying active in the league means Brady also owns most of the records for the longest player to achieve a feat in the league. For example, Brady is the oldest to start a Super Bowl game, which he did at 43 years and 188 days.
But age has not taken away his quality and that is why he also holds records as the oldest player to: score a rushing TD (44 years and 54 days), in a game with multiple TDs (42 years and 16 days), in making a TD pass (44 years and 159 days), in a game with perfect passing percentage (43 years and 145 days), as well as winning a playoff game (44 years and 166 days).
