Patriots’ Tom Brady speaks out on his NFL future
There have been some questions about what Tom Brady is going to do after this season but the New England Patriots star has made one thing clear, he wants to continue playing. Brady is 42 years old and set to be a free agent, but the goal is still to be in the NFL when he is 45.
During his weekly interview with Jim Gray of Westwood One, Brady said retirement wasn’t something that was even on his mind right now.
“I think I’ve said for a long time, my tune hasn’t changed. I hope to continue playing,” Brady said. “I’ve had long-term goals, I’ve had short-term goals and again, football is a contact sport. So you never know when your last game is going to be and you count your blessings every time you walk off the field healthy.”
Brady has made his goals clear but there are still some questions about whether Bill Belichick is going to want him back or they are going to go in a different direction. Belichick has never been afraid to move on from a player no matter how good they are, and some think that fate could be coming to Brady.
Brady’s stats haven’t been great this year but a lot of that has been the lack of playmakers around him. On the season, Brady has thrown for 3,836 yards, 22 touchdowns, and seven interceptions.
All those stats will be thrown out the window and the struggles of this season won’t be remembered if the Patriots win the Super Bowl.
