Tom Brady will celebrate his 36th birthday Saturday, and his recent contract extension will keep him under the Patriots' control until he's 40.
Think he's got another decade after that? As crazy as it sounds, Brady wouldn't shoot down the idea of spinning footballs until 2027, and beyond. At that point, two of his three children will be old enough to vote, and his youngest will nearly be old enough to drive.
Brady, who is on the cover of the September issue of "Men's Health," was asked by the magazine if he could play football into his 50s, which is apparently the new 40.
"I would love it," Brady said. "If I think I can do it, then I probably will."
You'd have to be a little zany to think it's a likely possibility, at least at this very moment. After all, if Brady played until he was 50, he wouldn't even be halfway through his career right now. But "screw" it, Brady said.
"There’s really an excitement I have to do this for as long as I possibly can,” Brady told the magazine, “even though everyone out there puts a limit. But I’ve always had people put limits. And I’m a person who says, ‘Well, screw limits.’ I’m not putting a limit on myself."
The article, obviously, was about Brady's fitness.
"l my thoughts on a daily basis go into how I can sustain the length of my career," Brady said. "What I eat. How I sleep. My levels of stress. Why? Because I love football.”
One other note: Brady mentioned he is opening a business, The TB12 Sports Therapy Center, which will hit Patriot Place in September.
