Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady seems to have found the Benjamin Button cheat code for life. At age 43 he led the Buccaneers to a Super Bowl championship, his 7th, their 2nd.
So what does the future hold for Brady and the Buccaneers?
It’s been reported that Brady plans to play until he’s 45. Then, back in May Buccaneers general manager Jason Licht said that if Brady wanted to play until he’s 50 the the Buccaneers would be more than happy to let him.
Recently Jori Epstein of USA Today asked Brady about playing until he’s 50, Brady response was, well typical Tom Brady.
“50? That’s a long time. Even for me, that’s a long time. I’ve always said 45 was the age that I wanted to reach and that was my goal. This year I’ll be 44, so next year I’ll be 45. I got a two-year contract.
I’m going to be able to obviously play this year and God forbid anything happens but play next year and then see what happens after that. If I still want to keep playing, I might be able to do that. And if that’s enough, then that would be enough.”
Brady has developed a mastery at answering questions without actually answering them directly. Coming off of a 40 TD performance for the Buccaneers in 2020, winning the Super Bowl MVP and Lombardi Trophy, it’s safe to say Brady has plenty left in the tank.
