Tom Brady thinks he can play till 50. Super.By Amber Lee
Tom Brady is playing in his 22nd year in the NFL. One might think the seven-time Super Bowl winner would be tired of crushing the dreams of opposing teams in last-minute, game-winning drives.
However, after his 49th game-winning drive to lift the Buccaneers to 31-29 season-opening victory against the Cowboys, the possibility of the 44-year-old playing until he is 50 is possible.
“I think I can, I think it is a yes,” Brady said on the “Tommy and Gronky” a YouTube show produced by the Buccaneers. “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.”
Tom Brady, who signed a one-year contract extension in March with Tampa Bay, will be under contract through next season. He would turn 46 before the 2023 NFL season. Only one quarterback, George Blanda, played at that age.
The five-time Super Bowl MVP and 14-time Pro Bowler is in his second season with the Buccaneers after winning a title with Tampa Bay last season and six Super Bowls in 20 seasons with the Patriots.
