Cortland Finnegan skeptical of Tom Brady's plan to play well into 40s

Miami Dolphins cornerback Cortland Finnegan is skeptical of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's plan to play well past the age of 40.

"He's asleep," Finnegan said."Tell him to wake up from whatever dream he is in. He can probably do it mentally, but physically, as the game evolves and gets faster and the guys at the defensive end position get bigger, it's going to be tough. I don't know that he'll be able to recover as fast."

Brady, 37, is involved in high-level training intended to elongate his career.

"He was born in a manger, I'll say that much," Finnegan said. "But I'm not sure at age 40 he wants to take a blind-side hit and get back up."
