Tom Brady is making it up to Patriots fans.
The former Patriots QB did not mention the Patriots at all in his retirement letter, which was posted to social media today.

Fans found this to be extremely strange, especially given the fact that the Patriots are with who he found the vast majority of his success.
In fact, there were some people claiming that Brady was trying to get in a dig at the Patriots by not including them in his letter.
“I have always believed the sport of football is an “all-in” proposition – if a 100% competitive commitment isn’t there, you won’t succeed, and success is what I love so much about our game,” Brady wrote as part of his post. “There is a physical, mental, and emotional challenge EVERY single day that has allowed me to maximize my highest potential. And I have tried my very best these past 22 years. There are no shortcuts to success on the field or in life. This is difficult for me to write, but here it goes: I am not going to make that competitive commitment anymore. I have loved my NFL career, and now it is time to focus my time and energy on other things that require my attention.”
After the Patriots took to Twitter and their own website with a lengthy message for the quarterback, Brady decided to hop back on Twitter where he addressed the organization that took a chance on him. Brady’s message was a fast one, as he simply said:
“Thank You Patriots Nation! I’m beyond grateful. Love you all.”
Thank You Patriots Nation ❤️
I’m beyond grateful. Love you all. https://t.co/kXm2ET27Dk

At least he still acknowledging the Patriots’ existence. For the Patriots fanbase, it probably means a lot.
But not including them in his initial message is telling.
