The “ALL” is in capital letters in the “thank you” message that Tom Brady posted along with a video montage on social media.

There’s no mention of ANY team in this post from Tom Brady.  Does “every single one of you” and “ALL” cover Patriots Nation or not?  The video montage contains footage from his time in New England and Tampa Bay as well as many touching moments with his family.

“As I look back on my career in football, the memories we have made, and the relationships we have built are by far the most meaningful. Yes, the scoreboard was important, but the toughest times always taught me the most important lessons.

I am grateful to the people that stood with me through every high and low, win and loss, and the memories we created TOGETHER. Memories that won’t ever fade.

I played for the name on the front of my jersey and the name on the back of my jersey. I played for my friends, my family, and our community – every single one of you – that have given me what I have today.

I love you all. Thank you ALL for making this incredible journey possible.”
