Tom Brady has played in the NFL for two decades and he recently admitted that he thinks he could play until he’s 50.
“Wow, seems to be a really hot question lately,” Brady said in a response to Rob Gronkowski’s question on Tommy & 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.”
It’s pretty rare for quarterbacks to play this long. Brady was recently asked what kind of advice he’d give young NFL quarterbacks looking to play deep into their career.
Brady had a two-word message: “Good luck.”
The seven-time Super Bowl champion expanded on his thoughts.
“It’s tough, but it’s up to them,” he added. “Yeah, if you do the right stuff, you have a shot. But I see a lot of people not do the right stuff. I try to influence the people I can. First of all, you have to love it. If you want to do it for a long period of time, you have to really excel at it and that really comes from loving it. It’s a lot of different motivations over long periods of time. Lots of little things at different moments – some is more motivation, some is more inspiration, but there are a lot of different things that play into it.”
Brady and the Bucs will take on the Falcons on Sunday.
Kickoff is set for 4:05 p.m. E.T.
