New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has made it clear that he he has no plans to retire and wants to keep playing into his mid-40s.
After telling Peter King of MMQB.com that his record-setting performance in Super Bowl LI wasn't his best game ever despite the historic 25-point rally over the Atlanta Falcons, the 39-year-old Brady believes he can maintain his level of play long past the age of any everyday quarterback in NFL history.
"I'd like to play until my mid-40s," Brady told King during a two-hour interview on Sunday.
"Then I'll make a decision. If I'm still feeling like I'm feeling today, who knows?
"Now, those things can always change. You do need long-term goals too. I know next year is not going to be my last year."
