Tom Brady caused a moment of panic for everyone in New England on Monday when he said the words “That’s it. I’m out” in a video posted to his Instagram.

“Time to ride off into the sunset,” Brady said while getting into his Aston Martin.

Brady started the video saying the only reason he was still playing was to get to 1,000 yards and now that he’s reached that goal he is done playing.

He quickly revealed this was just a major psych.

“Nah,” Brady said. “Gotta get back to work.”

You can breathe again.
