Tom Brady On Possible Retirement: ‘There’s Collateral Effects To Every Decision That I Make’
The New England Patriots’ legendary quarterback Tom Brady will be 41-years-old on August 3rd of 2018. When he heads to NFL training camp around that time it will be the 19th time he has done so. So, naturally, despite how well Brady played in 2017, the question begs to be asked, “How much longer is he really going to play before he actually considers retirement?”
Brady, who amazingly won his third NFL MVP award in 2017 at the age of 40, sat down with NFL Hall of Famer Michael Strahan on Good Morning America and they talked about how Brady feels about losing multiple Super Bowls, his training and diet regimen (He has a book AND a fitness app, you know?), his Tom vs. Time documentary, retirement and what his wife, supermodel Gisele Bundchen, thinks of him continuing to play.
“You can’t make decisions necessarily just for yourself, and I think that’s one thing I’ve learned as I’ve gotten older: There’s collateral effects to every decision that I make,” Brady said.
“I have a wife [Gisele Bundchen] that aspires to be a lot of things, and she travels a lot. My oldest son lives here in New York. Three kids, and you’re just always trying to juggle and you want to be there for them, and you want to be there for the hockey games and the soccer games. But you also realize the level of commitment it takes to give as much as you can to the team that needs you.”
