New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is still active on the field despite all the rumors about his retirement. Will Brady retire next season? Will he leave the NFL?
The quarterback talked about this topic in one of his interviews. He expressed his excitement to play for the Patriots. But, it’s time to stop, and admit that his time in the NFL is up.
“It’s more fun now than ever. I feel like I understand the game better than I ever have, and I feel like I can be a lot more decisive out there. Especially over the last eight years or so, I’ve developed a much more intuitive sense of my surroundings on the field, and I feel more comfortable out there than ever because I’ve seen a lot of the same situations before. I’ve also trained hard this off-season to improve my movement and anticipation,” Brady said.
“I’ve also begun to treasure the moments a bit more, I think. The reality is, no matter how much you prepare, it can end at any moment with the wrong kind of hit. I guess it’s an interesting position to be in because I can see the end line now, but I still feel like I have a lot to play for, a lot left to do in my career, and a lot left in the tank. It’s motivating to me to finish the right way — by being healthy and playing at a championship level,” he added.
“I’ve had a lot of incredible support over the years, and I’ve been very lucky to play for the best organization for my entire career. We’ve come a long way to get to this point, and doing everything I can to keep that going and continuing to forge into uncharted territory for as long as we can is a big motivator for me. I want to help our team build on the standard we have set over many years. I love this game, and I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to go out and play every day at my age, and I want forge a path for others to do the same — if that’s what they want!”
It seems like all those rumors are based on a true story.
