    TAMPA, Fla. — Sometimes, they miss their cue. The light will be gone, the townspeople will have moved on, and the hero will blow his final ride into the sunset. Not Tom Brady. Not the most successful, proficient, leading-man quarterback the NFL has ever known. Brady called it quits with a simple but elegant post on social media early Wednesday morning, and it felt absolutely right. Like any ...

      PHILADELPHIA — Happy Tom Brady Day. It’s Feb. 1, the day each year that Tom Brady retires. This is the second annual TBD, and, while we wish you all many felicitous returns, we do not wish the same to Brady, the greatest athlete you’ll ever hate. We wish for him to stay retired this time. We wish him the best of riddances. Brady posted a retirement video on Twitter at 8:12 a.m. in front a ...

        MIAMI — This time it took all of 53 seconds to end a 23-year fantasy ride and close the thickest chapter in NFL history. Tom Brady was close up and looking you right in the eye, outdoors and wearing a gray T-shirt. You could hear the wind in the mic. You could hear the emotion in his voice. The headline on his Twitter feed read: ‘Truly grateful on this day. Thank you’ followed by emojis of ...

          Breanna Stewart is coming to the New York Liberty. The most coveted free agent this offseason, who won the WNBA MVP award in 2018, announced on social media that she was going to New York with a photo of her in a Liberty shirt on Wednesday. Wednesday was the first day that free agents could sign. 

            It’s only fitting that the top two quarterbacks in the regular season based on All-Pro voting are the last two quarterbacks standing in the NFL this season. First-team All-Pro quarterback Patrick Mahomes will take his Kansas City Chiefs into the Super Bowl against second-team All-Pro Jalen Hurts and the Philadelphia Eagles.

              Pat Riley puts it this way: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar never had any potential. Riley says, “he only had greatness." Abdul-Jabbar’s reign of nearly four decades as the NBA’s most prolific scorer is coming to an end. LeBron James is closing in on taking the top spot that Abdul-Jabbar claimed in 1984. Riley coached Abdul-Jabbar with the Lakers and brought James to Miami as a free agent in 2010.

                Tom Brady is retiring — and this time it sounds like it’s for good. The seven-time Super Bowl winning quarterback posted an emotional video on his social media accounts Wednesday morning to share the news. It comes a year after Brady briefly retired from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, only to return to football less than two months later. This time, a somber Brady, with his voice cracking at times, ...

                Tom Brady has announced his retirement. Brady won a record seven Super Bowls for New England and Tampa. He is the most successful quarterback in NFL history and one of the greatest athletes in team sports. He posted the announcement on social media in a brief video lasting just under one minute. He says this time it's for good.

                TAMPA, Fla. — Tom Brady said he was getting straight to the point this time. Choking back tears, an emotional Brady announced his retirement with a short video post on social media Wednesday morning. “I’m retiring ... for good,” Brady said. One year ago to the day, Brady first announced his retirement from football with a lengthy written post in Instagram. But 40 days later, he reconsidered ...

                BALTIMORE — Two of the NFL’s showcase games had the makings of professional wrestling events. The NFC championship game had its own version of a “Royal Rumble” when both teams left the sidelines and met at midfield in the closing minutes of Philadelphia’s 31-7 rout of San Francisco on Sunday afternoon. The players were eventually separated but not before 49ers left tackle Trent Williams ...

                TAMPA, Fla. — The last time Tom Brady played at Levi’s Stadium, it wasn’t a happy homecoming. The 49ers beat the Bucs, 35-7, on Dec. 11, and many of his family and friends left the game early to beat traffic. The 49ers Faithful were elated by the performance of rookie quarterback Brock Purdy, who won his first of seven consecutive starts (including playoffs) that day. General manager John ...

                PITTSBURGH — Can we agree the Steelers are a long way from being the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles? That it is harder than ever after this postseason to imagine the Steelers making it to a Super Bowl any time soon? It starts with the edge at quarterback that the Chiefs and Eagles have. Patrick Mahomes won't win seven Super Bowls, but I like the chances of remembering him the way ...

                PHILADELPHIA — Sixteen years ago, Tony Dungy and the Indianapolis Colts beat Lovie Smith and the Chicago Bears in Super Bowl XLI. You might remember it because Peyton Manning won his first ring, or because Prince delivered the greatest halftime show in history. You also might remember it because it was the first time two Black coaches met in football’s title game. It was a hallelujah moment ...

                CHICAGO — If Ryan Poles has said it once, he has said it a thousand times. He’s not so much interested in seeking short-term satisfaction as he is eager to develop a formula for sustainable achievement. Thus as his second offseason as the Chicago Bears general manager gets rolling, Poles has made no promises of a 2023 playoff breakthrough, instead working to strengthen his roster with a longer ...

                SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Trey Lance stood at his locker on one side of the 49ers’ locker room, speaking for the first time to reporters since a Sept. 18 fracture to his right foot, which remains in an orthopedic boot. Down the way in a corner, Brock Purdy sat in front of his locker, waiting to update reporters on the injury to his right elbow. Lance, then Purdy. That could be how the 49ers’ ...

                Most franchises that haven't won a playoff game in six years and are one of 18 teams that haven't even been to the Super Bowl in a dozen years might be inclined to consider changing their fortunes. Especially when they are arguably one of the most successful organizations in NFL history. But it is not even a fleeting thought for the Steelers, who have had just three head coaches in 54 years ...

                MOBILE, Ala. — As Senior Bowl practice for the American roster wrapped up late Tuesday afternoon at Hancock Whitney Stadium, Chicago Bears offensive coordinator Luke Getsy peeled off his team-issued pullover. Underneath, he wore a T-shirt from Veets — a bar at the heart of everything that happens during Senior Bowl week — and Getsy posed with Tim Zetts, the Bears assistant tight ends coach, ...

                PHILADELPHIA — Haason Reddick didn’t have time for pleasantries. The Camden, N.J., native and former Temple standout sat across from Matt Rhule and Phil Snow in March 2021 for a free-agency meeting with familiar faces running the Carolina Panthers at the time. The tenor of that conversation still resonates with Rhule two years later. Reddick’s career hung in the balance at the time. He could ...

                The 49ers are in the market for a new defensive coordinator. DeMeco Ryans, who took over the 49ers’ defense under Kyle Shanahan in 2021, reportedly agreed to become the head coach of the Houston Texans on Tuesday — which means there will be a new coach running the defense for the third time in four seasons. The news was first reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter. The Texans have not yet announced ...

                The 49ers’ brass highly suspected it last night. Brock Purdy did, too. The black shooting sleeve on his arm wasn’t going to hide what was happening with Purdy’s elbow. His ulnar collateral ligament — the one that connects the ulna and the humerus — is torn. An MRI confirmed it Monday, and while Purdy reportedly is seeking second opinions, there’s no circumstance where his first ...

                BALTIMORE — Tyler Huntley, who played in six games for the Ravens this season filling in for injured quarterback Lamar Jackson, has been named to the Pro Bowl roster as a replacement for injured Buffalo Bills starter Josh Allen. The AFC roster initially included three quarterbacks: Patrick Mahomes of the Kansas City Chiefs, Joe Burrow of the Cincinnati Bengals and Allen. However, with Mahomes ...

                In 2008, the Jets acquired veteran quarterback Brett Favre in a trade with the Packers. Now dreams of Aaron Rodgers are dancing through Jets fans’ heads. Is Gang Green on the cusp of trading for another Green Bay future Hall of Fame quarterback this offseason?
