Tom Brady Thinking About Playing Until He’s 50

Four more years? Make it six. The fountain of youth is still flowing for Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady.

Tom Brady (44), is a reigning Super Bowl Champion once again. He just led a Thursday Night comeback in the final minutes, throwing for 379 yards.

When Tom Brady said he wanted to keep playing until the age of 45, it seemed fanciful. However, following his reinvention as a champion in Tampa Bay, who knows what’s possible?

The evergreen signal-caller recently stated he doesn’t think it would be difficult to extend his career into his fifth decade.

“Wow, seems to be a really hot question lately,” Brady said.

“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.”

At the age of 44, Brady is still one of the elite quarterbacks in the NFL. There’s no need for him to keep going. His legacy is already secure.

Perhaps he just wants to see how long he can actually keep going at the top level. He’s come this far, so why not?

Comments from Brady earlier in the week indicate his awareness of his age compared to the other quarterbacks around the league. With the trend leaning towards first and second year quarterbacks, he must feel like he’s playing against children at times.

“I don’t remember this many rookies playing,” Brady said.

“Even the second-year guys. Tua (Tagovailoa), (Justin) Herbert, (Joe) Burrow, Trevor Lawrence. (Justin) Fields played a little bit. Trey Lance played a little bit. Zach Wilson is playing. Mac Jones is playing. That’s a lot of young quarterbacks. Gone are the days of Drew Brees, Peyton Manning, Philip Rivers, Eli Manning.”
