Tom Brady made his weekly appearance on WEEI this morning and was asked about Adam Schefter’s pregame speculation that this is his final year. In New England at least, if not his last year in football altogether. Brady Said:
“That is the great part for me, I don’t know. 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.”
I mean this is exactly what you want Tom Brady to say right? At age 42 it seems safe to say he isn’t sure what he’s going to do. He might play next year, he might play for 2 years. Shoot he might retire at the end of this season. Even though Tom Brady beat my favorite team in The Super Bowl a few years back; there is no denying he is my favorite football player ever to wear a helmet and pads and for those who want to push him out the door, I just ask. Why? Enjoy greatness because we will never ever see someone like Tom Brady again. Enjoy moments like these:
