We have reached the end of the great pocket quarterback era in the National Football League.

Tom Brady joins Peyton Manning, Eli Manning, Ben Roethlisberger, Drew Brees, and Philip Rivers as he retires from the NFL.

The seven-time Super Bowl Champion is a future first-ballot Hall of Famer. He accomplished six NFL titles with Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots and one with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Patrick Surtain II, a former Alabama cornerback, is a rising defensive back in the league. He’s had some great interceptions, but Surtain is sad that he won’t get the chance to pick off Brady. He hilariously wished the G.O.A.T. well on Twitter, but Surtain certainly wanted that interception opportunity.

The league will miss Brady.
