Tom Brady Says He Can See The ‘End Line’ In His Career. Here’s When He Predicts It’ll Be
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady may be playing like he’s ageless, but even he knows the end could be near.
In a recent interview for his personal website TB12.com, Brady revealed he’s been thinking about his own retirement almost as much as everybody else has. (RELATED: CELEBRATE TOM BRADY’S BIRTHDAY WITH HIS BEST INSTAGRAM PHOTOS [SLIDESHOW])
Brady admitted he’s aware of the stakes, but also said the game is “more fun now than ever.”
“I’ve also begun to treasure the moments a bit more, I think,” he explained. “The reality is, no matter how much you prepare, it can end at any moment with the wrong kind of hit. I guess it’s an interesting position to be in because I can see the end line now, but I still feel like I have a lot to play for, a lot left to do in my career, and a lot left in the tank. It’s motivating to me to finish the right way — by being healthy and playing at a championship level.”
It’s no secret that Tom Brady is getting older; he’ll take the field at age 41 this season, and the Pats are taking a gamble by putting most (if not all of) their faith in one QB. But Brady’s not exactly showing signs of aging. He won the MVP award last season and has taken the Super Bowl to eight Super Bowls — so far.
He’s hinted at a possible retirement around 45, but with the way he’s been looking during preseason, it looks like the sky could be the limit.
We’ll just have to wait and see. The Pats face the Texans this Sunday at 1 p.m. EST.
