Tom Brady has been on the record for awhile now saying he wants to play until he's 45 years old, but that does not sound like a guarantee anymore.
Prior to Monday Night Football on ESPN, Adam Schefter discussed how Brady along with personal trainer Alex Guerrero have put their homes on the market and he's in the last year of his contract, which reading between the lines signals there's a chance this is Brady's final year in New England.
Some took it at as he will retire, while others took it at he could potentially play for another team.
Appearing on The Greg Hill Show Wednesday, Brady was asked for his thoughts on the retirement speculation surrounding him, and he said even he doesn't know what the future holds.
“That is the great part for me, I don’t know," Brady said. "I think that has been a unique situation that I have been in because I think when you commit to a team for a certain amount of years you kind feel like (there is) the responsibility to always fulfill the contract. For me, it’s been good because I am just taking it day-by-day and I am enjoying what I have. I don’t know what the future holds and the great part is for me, football at this point is all borrowed time. I never expected to play 20 years and I am playing on a great team and it’s just been an incredible 20 years of my life. To play for Mr. Kraft, and Jonathan and the Kraft family and for Coach Belichick and to have so much success is a dream come true.
“One day I will wake up and I will feel like, ‘OK, that will be enough.’ When that day comes, that day comes. I don’t know if it will be after this year. I don’t know if it will be five years from now. I don’t have to determine those things right now, either. That is kind of a good part of where I am at. Just take advantage of the opportunities that I have this year and do the very best I can do and then those decisions come at probably more appropriate times."
Brady re-did his contract this summer so that 2020 becomes a void year and he officially will be a free agent after the season.
