Tom Brady’s birthday is less than 12 months away and thought some thought it was improbably for the GOAT to play until he was 45 like he said five years ago, he’s apparently shooting for 50.
The league continues to wait for the decline of the Bucs QB, who is coming off his 10th Super Bowl appearance and 7th Super Bowl victory.
Though he’s arguably accomplished more than anyone in the history of the league, he’s not ready to hang them up just yet.
“Wow, seems to be a really hot question lately,” Brady said in a response to teammate Rob Gronkowski’s question in the return ofTommy & Gronky. “Can Tom Brady play ’til 50? Like, 50 years old? Fifty. I don’t find it so difficult. Plus, in Florida, it’s kind of a retiree state, so I feel like I can play and then just glide into retirement. I think I can. I think it’s a yes.”
If Brady believes it, everyone else will have no choice but to follow suit. Most everyone thought 45 was unattainable, yet he seems to be aging in reverse. Brady is a reigning champion (again) at 44 and just threw for 379 yards and four touchdowns in a Thursday night win. Oh, and he led yet another comeback in the final minutes.
Forty-four looks just fine. Shoot for the stars, Tom. You’ve already secured the gold jacket and G.O.A.T. status.
