Sorry New England, Tom Brady is gone.

The former Patriots quarterback officially announced via social media on Tuesday that he will be leaving the organization and will take his talents “elsewhere”. For the past 20 seasons, Patriots fans witnessed Brady win six Super Bowl championships and evolve into one of the greatest quarterbacks of all-time.

He was also an inspiration to many sports figures — especially in New England.  Here is how Boston sports figures are reacting to the news:


Jayson Tatum:


Marcus Smart:


Red Sox:


Pedro Martinez:


Will Middlebrooks: 


David Ortiz:



Boston Bruins: 


This will updated as more reactions come in.
