Tom Brady, a seven-time NFL champion, has no plans to retire anytime soon. Proof of this is that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers star said he believes he can play until he is 50 years old. He is currently 44.
“I don’t find it that hard. I can play for another six seasons and go straight into retirement. I think I can do it. I would say yes,” said the quarterback in a video posted on the Bucs’ social media.
In the conversation, Rob Gronkowski, Brady’s teammate, joked about whether Gisele Bundchen would authorize this decision.
“The question that has to be asked is: Will Gisele let Tom play until he’s 50?” asked Gronk.
“That’s a much better question,” Brady replied with laughter. “Why don’t people research this? I think they should. That’s certainly a no. I’m kidding. Sorry, honey. Love you. She’d say yes. She lets as long as I’m happy.”
Tom Brady is currently playing his 22nd season in the NFL. The most titles player in league history, he was a six-time champion with the New England Patriots and once with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
