The New York Jets celebrated Tom Brady retiring from the NFL on Tuesday morning.
After two decades of being completely owned by him, the New York Jets had a funny tweet reacting to the Tom Brady retirement news.
During his 20-year run with the New England Patriots, Brady and his former organization were the gold standard in the NFL. As for the Jets, they are the only franchise in the league that has not been to the postseason in a decade. Playing in the same division as the greatest quarterback to ever live is tough for the other three franchises, but this self-own by the Jets is a hilarious one.
Here is the Jets’ official Twitter account reacting to the news initially.
And here is them following it up with a classier tweet in an attempt to save face.
New York Jets react to Tom Brady retiring as everyone expected they would
In the two years since Brady last played in the AFC East, the Jets went from terrible, drafted Zach Wilson No. 2 overall out of BYU and went to bad. With Joe Burrow taking another long-suffering AFC team from the dog house to the penthouse in his second year in the league, Jets fans are hoping for the same thing. While Wilson does show a ton of promise, Burrow is one of a kind.
The good news for the Jets is they enter 2022 with a greater sense of stability. The Miami Dolphins are looking for a new head coach and the Buffalo Bills lost their offensive coordinator Brian Daboll to the New York Giants job. While the Jets have a ways to go before getting back to being competitive, they no longer have to play in a league that was previously owned by Brady.
With Brady finally hanging up the spikes, the Jets can finally put the last 22 years to rest and win.
