Brady, who turns 42 on August 3, used a picture from the Patriots' Super Bowl parade as part of his Twitter profile. He shook his head when asked whether he might step away after his record-setting victory.

Leave it to Tom Brady to join Twitter on April Fools day.

Since it's starting to look like Tom Brady won't be attending voluntary workouts in New England this offseason, he's going to have some extra time on his hands, and it appears he's going to fill that extra time by tweeting. The latter had a glimmer of hope today as Tom Brady made his Twitter debut.

Powerball ticket sold in Gaston County wins $1 Million
If no Saturday's drawing doesn't produce a victor , the jackpot will roll over once again to Wednesday. The winning combination for the $638 million prize is 24, 25, 52, 60, 66 , and the Powerball is 5.

His second tweet, delivered about an hour later, let relieved Patriots fans know he was goofing around.

That joke led to some quality reactions from Julian Edelman and Golden Tate, and resulted Brady asking a rhetorical question in his follow-up tweet. It wasn't a bad joke so much as a dad joke. His wideout, Julian Edelman, posted a GIF captioned, "Don't You Dare".

Boston.com notes that while Brady's post-2019 contract is still in the works, the 41-year-old quarterback is far from retirement.
