Tom Brady’s NFL career has come to an end. The legendary quarterback officially announced his retirement after 22 years in the league Tuesday via a long-running post on social media. Brady’s retirement announcement consisted of nearly a thousand words, but there was no mention of the team that he played the majority of his career with. While Brady thanked the Buccaneers, the Glazer family, Bruce Arians, Jason Licht, and several others within the Tampa Bay organization, the New England Patriots, the Krafts, and Bill Belichick were omitted.
That lack of recognition quickly caught the eyes of social media and was met with displeasure by a large chunk of Patriots fans. It also seems to have miffed owner Robert Kraft as well.
During the Tuesday edition of “Boston Sports Tonight” on NBC Sports Boston, Ted Johnson — who played his entire 10-year career with the Patriots and won three Super Bowls with the franchise — claims that Kraft had a “temper tantrum” after finding out Brady had left the Patriots out of his retirement announcement.
“I was told earlier tonight that … it was an unpleasant day today at the executive offices in Foxboro and that Robert Kraft initially when he first heard the news was very upset,” said Johnson. “He was screaming and he was yelling and there was a temper tantrum that he threw after he read this IG post. So, he was not happy about it in Foxboro, and I’m not surprised. But to hear about the outward emotion that he showed regarding this post was a little bit surprising.”
