This is just a testament to the family, teammates, coaches, staff, and every single one of you who’ve supported me along the way. Thank you all. Let’s go get another one.

Brady is coming off a strong 2021 season where he led the NFL in pass attempts, passing yards, and touchdown passes which players felt was enough to propel him to being the top-ranked player in the league.
Brady, the NFL’s oldest active player at 45 years old, reclaims the Top 100’s No. 1 spot for the fourth time since the list’s inception in 2011. Brady posted career-high numbers in completions (485) and passing yards (5,316) while tossing 43 touchdowns to just six interceptions in what was his 22nd season in the league. At this point, Brady’s year-by-year stats are merely padding every all-time quarterback record he holds, but the Bucs QB continues to compete at a high level and is sure to contend for his eighth Super Bowl ring in 2022. As if he doesn’t hold enough regular-season and playoff QB records, Brady owns all Top 100 accolades since his No. 1 debut 12 seasons ago and has yet to receive a ranking lower than No. 14 (2020). The context of Brady’s legendary career is often unfathomable and it shall continue in Year 23 following the G.O.A.T.’s 40-day long retirement this offseason.
