Tom Brady has been in the NFL for more than two decades yet shows zero signs of slowing down. This past season, the veteran quarterback had 4,633 passing yards and 40 touchdowns in his first year with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Even though Brady looks incredible at 43 years old, he’ll eventually have to walk away from the game of football. However, we might be a few years away from seeing that happen.
During the latest episode of “The Adam Schefter Podcast,” Brady’s personal trainer, Alex Guerrero, told Schefter that he expects Brady to play at least two more seasons. This would allow Brady to fulfill his personal goal of playing in the NFL until the age of 45.
Brady has two more years remaining on his contract with the Buccaneers, so it makes sense for him to play at least two more seasons.

The NFL has proven time and time again that it’s unpredictable. It’s possible that Brady retires earlier than expected. On the other hand, he could play several more years.
In February, Brady addressed the idea of him playing past the age of 45. Let’s just say that he hasn’t closed the door on that possibility.
“Yeah, definitely. I would definitely consider that,” Brady told reporters. “It’s a physical sport and you never know when that moment is. Just because it’s a contact sport and there’s a lot of training that goes into it. And again there has to be 100% commitment from myself to keep doing it.”
Only time will tell how long Brady remains in the NFL.
