Tom Brady's April Fools' Day prank sucks

The Patriots quarterback used April Fools' Day to try his hand at comedy, "announcing" he has made a decision to retire and tweet in his newfound spare time.

The New England Patriots quarterback joined Twitter on Monday and put out a tweet that said, "I'm retiring".

In an April Fools' Day prank the rest of the National Football League wishes was real, Tom Brady joined Twitter to formally announce his retirement.

New England almost fell apart in panic, thanks to Tom Brady's first ever tweet.

Tom Brady, if you haven't already heard (we're sure you have though) is on Twitter. As of the late afternoon Monday, Brady had followed 98 people (mostly athletes and musicians), and even thrown out a few (three to be exact) likes.

Brady, 41, is coming off another Super Bowl victory - this time over the Los Angeles Rams.

Most aren't convinced that the 29-year-old has played his final snap for the New England Patriots.

The NFL's Instagram account posted a picture showing that Gronkowski owns the most receiving touchdowns from Brady, with 78 of their career connections going for a score.
