Tom Brady wants to play until his mid-40s, which defies NFL history (Shutdown Corner)

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady will be asked about it every year until he finally steps aside, but here’s the difference with his career: He has shown no desire to retire, and even at 39 he looks like he’s nowhere close to the end. “I’d like to play until my mid-forties,” Brady said, according to The MMQB’s Peter King. If you’re wondering if the Patriots should trade Jimmy Garoppolo this offseason or hold onto him as Brady’s possible replacement, that should answer your question.
