Jarod Goff has been added to the Pro Bowl roster and is now the 4th Detroit Lion set for Vegas along with Frank Ragnow, Amon Ra St Brown and Penei Sewell. He's the first Detroit QB to earn the honor since Matthew Stafford in 2014.

And Tom Brady made it official that he has retired from the NFL. Brady played for Michigan from 1995 to 1999 and led them to a comeback win in his final game at Michigan in the Orange Bowl against Alabama in 2000. That same year, Brady was drafted by New England and became the starting quarterback early in 2001 after Patriot starter Drew Bledsoe went down with an injury. The Patriots would go on to win their first Super Bowl title. As the team's starter for 18 seasons, Brady led the Patriots to 17 division titles, including 11 consecutive from 2009 to 2019, 13 AFC Championship Games, including eight consecutive from 2011 to 2018, nine Super Bowl appearances, and six Super Bowl titles, all NFL records for a player and a franchise. He joined the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2020 and led them to three playoff appearances, two division titles and a Super Bowl title in his first year there, extending his individual records to ten Super Bowl appearances and seven wins. Brady leaves holding nearly every major quarterback record, including career passing yards, completions, touchdown passes, and games started. He is the NFL leader in career total wins, regular season wins, and playoff wins for a quarterback, and Super Bowl MVP Awards. He is one of only two quarterbacks to win a super bowl for two different franchises. He is the only quarterback to win a Super Bowl with a team from both the AFC and NFC as well as be named Super Bowl MVP on two different teams. He holds the record for most Pro Bowl selections and was named the first unanimous NFL MVP in 2010. Brady is the only quarterback to win a Super Bowl in three separate decades. He is the oldest quarterback to start a game in the NFL, the oldest player to be named NFL MVP at the age of 40 in 2017, the oldest Super Bowl MVP at age 43, and the oldest quarterback selected to the Pro Bowl at the age of 44. Brady is the only NFL quarterback named to two all-decade teams, 2000s and 2010s, and was unanimously named to the 100th Anniversary All-Time Team in 2019.
