Patriots retire Tom  Brady’s number 12

The New England Patriots have retired the number 12 jersey of Tom Brady of San Mateo, California according to the Associated Press on Wednesday. In a special off-season ceremony on Wednesday night, Brady was also inducted into the Patriots Hall of Fame and Patriots owner Robert Kraft confirmed a 12 foot bronze statue of Brady is in the process of being built and will be displayed at the end of the year outside the Patriots Hall of Fame. Many celebrities attended the ceremony. They included musicians Bon Jovi and Jay-Z.

Brady is considered the best football player of all-time. In 283 games with the Patriots, he completed 6377 passes in 9988 attempts, for 74751 passing yards, 541 passing touchdowns and 179 interceptions. He also had 606 rushes for 1037 rushing yards and 22 rushing touchdowns.

In the playoffs, Brady completed 1025 passes in 1626 attempts for 11388 passing yards, 73 touchdowns and 35 interceptions. He also had 100 rushes for 136 rushing yards and six touchdowns. Brady also won six Super Bowls with the Patriots.

Brady was initially the Patriots’s sixth round pick, 199th overall in the 2000 NFL Draft. When he was drafted, there were not huge expectations. New England already had Drew Bledsoe at quarterback, but he suffered a series of injuries which allowed Brady an opportunity to shine. In his rookie season with New England, the Patriots won the Super Bowl. New England defeated the St. Louis Rams 20-17 in Super Bowl XXXVI from the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Brady is the 35th person inducted into the Patriots Hall of Fame, and fourth quarterback. He follows Bledsoe of Ellensburg, Washington, Steve Grogan of San Antonio, Texas, and Vito Parilli of Rochester, Pennsylvania.
