Tom Brady Plans On Playing For A Long Time


For someone that’s 39-years-old with five Super Bowl titles, four Super Bowl MVP’s and widely considered as the greatest quarterback to ever play the game, one would think it’s time for retirement, right?

After all, Tom Brady has nothing left to prove, but don’t tell him that.

“If it was up to my wife she would have me retire today,” Brady said. “She told me that last night three times. And I said, ‘Too bad, babe, I’m having too much fun right now.’ You know, I feel like I can still do it and if you love what you do and you’re capable of doing it then, I mean I’d be so bored if I wasn’t going out there, knowing that I could still do it. So I’m going to work hard to be ready to go and I still plan on playing for a long time.”

It all makes perfect sense when you think about it because typically someone of Brady’s age would’ve shown great signs of decline by now. However, that hasn’t been the case with Brady.

As a matter of fact, you could argue Brady played the best football of his career this season.
