Tom Brady recently upped the ante when asked if he could play at 55 years young. Brady, who is currently 44, said that he fully believes that he could play in the NFL at that age.

“I really think I can play as long as I want,” Brady said. “I could literally play until I’m 50 or 55 if I wanted to. I don’t think I will obviously … my physical body won’t be the problem. I think it’ll just be, I’m missing too much of my life with my family.”

While it’s hard to imagine Brady playing in the year 2032, the seven-time Super Bowl champion has shown time and time again that he can defy all previous records.

After an early-season loss to the Chiefs in 2014, many fans were already declaring Brady at the end of his career. Since that game, Brady has won four Super Bowls, five conference championships, three Super Bowl MVP awards and a third league MVP award.

He became the first player to win more than five Super Bowls, the first player to win more than three Super Bowl MVP awards and the first starting quarterback to win Super Bowls in both the AFC and NFC. He also led the first team to win a Super Bowl in their home stadium.

And Brady’s 2021 season stats alone suggest that he is far from ready to retire. Entering Thursday’s game against the Eagles, Brady led the NFL in attempts, completions and passing yards. His plays helped the defending champions get off to a 4-1 start.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are trying to become the first team since Brady’s 2004 Patriots to become twice world champions back to back.

Brady leads the NFL in passing yards through five weeks with 1,767 and is second in touchdown passes, with 15.

He’s under contract with the Buccaneers through the 2022 season, at which time he will be 45.
