Tom Brady on playing until 50: ‘I think it’s a yes’

Tom Brady appeared pretty spry during the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ season-opening victory over the Dallas Cowboys.

With Brady seemingly keeping Father Time at bay, fans naturally have questioned if the 44-year-old quarterback envisions playing until his 50th birthday — Aug. 3, 2027.

As luck would have it, Brady and teammate Rob Gronkowski tackled that question on this season’s first episode of Tommy & Gronky, a video series produced by the Buccaneers.

“Can Tom Brady play until (he’s) 50 years old?” Gronkowski asked.

“Wow. Seems to be a really hot question lately,” Brady said. “Can Tom Brady play ’til 50? Like, 50 years old?”

“Fifty,” Gronkowski repeated. “You’re 44, and that’s six more years.”

“I don’t find it so difficult,” Brady answered. “Plus in Florida, it’s kind of a retiree state, so I feel like I can play and then just glide into retirement. I think I can. I think it’s a yes.”

The line of questioning didn’t end there, however.

“You know, there’s a little spin to that question,” Gronkowski said. “I think it’s, will (Brady’s wife) Gisele (Bundchen) let Tom play ’til 50?”

“That is a way better question,” Brady said. “And in fact, why would (fans) not Google that? I think they should. That is, of course no, that answer.

“I’m just kidding,” Brady continued. “Sorry, babe. I love you. You would let me. You would let me do anything as long as I’m happy.”

Brady completed 32 of 50 passes for 379 yards with four touchdowns in Tampa Bay’s 31-29 victory over Dallas on Sept. 9.

Brady won his seventh Super Bowl title in February while playing in his first season with the Buccaneers after 20 with the New England Patriots. He threw three touchdown passes in Tampa Bay’s 31-9 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs to win Super Bowl MVP honors for the fifth time.
