Tom Brady said that he fully believes that he is capable of playing in the NFL at age 50. He stated this in conversation with the Amazon duo of Hannah
Storm and Andre Kremer, ahead of Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ clash
against Philadelphia Eagles.

Brady, who is 44 years old, believes that playing another 11
years would not be a problem, at least physically.

“I really think I can play as long as I want,” Brady
said “I could literally play until I’m 50 or 55 if I wanted to. I don’t
think I will obviously … my physical body won’t be the problem. I think it’ll
just be, I’m missing too much of my life with my family.” 

“I told him if he wants to play till he’s 50 and he’s
still playing and he feels like he can still play, then he can play till he’s
50,” Bucs general manager Jason Licht said in May.

Brady, at the time, mentioned to USA Today, “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.”

Following a season-opening defeat to the Chiefs in 2014,
many pundits predicted Tom Brady was nearing the end of his career. Brady has
won four Super Bowls, five conference titles, three Super Bowl MVP trophies,
and a third league MVP award after that game.

Brady‘s contract with the Buccaneers was extended this
offseason, keeping the future Hall of Famer in Tampa through 2022.
