NFL superstar Tom Brady has announced he will join the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on a two-year deal.

The 42-year-old, widely regarded as one of the greatest players in the history of the sport, quit the New England Patriots earlier this week after a 20-year spell in which he racked up six Super Bowl wins.

In a statement on Instagram, the veteran quarterback wrote: ‘Excited, humble and hungry… if there is one thing I have learned about football, it’s that nobody cares what you did last year or the year before that.

‘You earn the trust and respect of those around through your commitment every single day.

‘I’m starting a new football journey and thankful for the Buccaneers for giving me an opportunity to do what I love to do.

‘I look forward to meeting all my new teammates and coaches and proving to them that they can believe and trust in me,

‘I have always believed that well done is better than well said, so I’m gonna not gonna say much more – I’m just gonna get to work!’

Brady said an emotional goodbye to his former Patriots teammates and coaches, with which he created a long-lasting legacy.

He said: ‘To all my team-mates, coaches, executives and staff, Coach Belichick, RKK and the Kraft family and the entire organisation.

‘I want to say thank you for the past twenty years of my life and the daily commitment to winning and creating a winning culture built on great values.’
