That sound you hear is the rest of the AFC East as well as other teams breaking everything near them upon finding out that Tom Brady just won’t go away.
During an appearance Thursday on WEEI, Brady’s trainer Alex Guerrero, said the 42-year-old quarterback wants to play into his late 40s.
“It all comes to commitment, really,” Guerrero said. “No one thought you could play at the elite level in your late 30s, early 40s. That is something we always felt we could do. I have really wanted to be there to help him accomplish that goal. I certainly do believe that 45 is a very realistic goal.”
The six-time Super Bowl champ seems dead set on pushing Father’s time buttons to the max.
“We talk about it all the time. Every year he just adds another year. He goes in and he’s like, ‘Guys, I feel so good still. I think I am going to go till 45.’ I am like, ‘OK.’ Now he’s like, ‘Alex, I think I can go like 46 or 47,’” Guerrero said.
Guerrero said his focus remains on preparing his friend for Sunday when presented about Brady’s impending free agency.
“It’s not July 2020. I am focused on today. I am just trying to get Tom ready for practice today. It’s Thursday,” he said.
The Patriots face the Eagles on Sunday.
