Tom Brady Isn’t Retiring No Matter How Bad His Wife Wants Him To
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has made it clear he has no plans to retire from the NFL, no matter how much his supermodel wife Gisele Bundchen wants him to.
After 16 years in the NFL and recently becoming the only player in the history of the league to win five Super Bowls, you might think that Brady would start to consider hanging up his helmet. But the New England quarterback isn’t even giving it a second thought, or a third for that matter.
Gisele reportedly asked her husband to retire three separate times since he hoisted his fifth Lombardi Trophy on Sunday night. Brady joined SiriusXM NFL radio on Monday when he revealed how his conversation with the former Victoria’s Secret model went.

“If it was up to my wife, she would have me retire today. She told me that last night three times,” Brady told NFL radio. “I said, ‘too bad, babe, I’m having too much fun right now.'”
The Patriots star will turn 40 later this year, but he’s still very much in his prime and he proved it in the second half of Super Bowl LI. (SLIDESHOW: Celebrate Tom Brady’s Fifth Super Bowl With Photos Of His Supermodel Wife)
“You know, I feel like I can still do it. If you love what you do and you’re capable of doing it, then I might be so bored if I wasn’t going out there knowing that I could still do it,” he continued. “So I’m going to work hard to be ready to go, and I still plan on playing for a long time.”
And why shouldn’t he? He took complete control of the game in the second half Sunday night to lead his team in the biggest comeback in Super Bowl history. Who’s to say he can’t do it one or two more times?
