Patriots quarterback told everyone that he is ready to play until he’s 45. It looks like “Madden NFL 20” is fitting his agenda perfectly.
The video game released an update Tuesday, and there’s a little note regarding the six-time Super Bowl champion.
“To ensure Madden is the best game possible, scheduled updates are deployed by the Madden Development Team to add features to the game after launch and to tune gameplay based on community feedback,” they wrote. “Our launch updates focus on many of the issues that Madden players report to us. We thank you for your feedback – you’ve helped us improve Madden NFL 20. We look forward to further feedback and are committed to continuing to meet your expectations.”
Here’s the update on Brady:
“Patriots QB Tom Brady will now be prevented from retiring at the end of the first season, based on his recently signed contract.”
Users can’t control players’ career plans. Brady is 42, and he won’t retire in the game, too.
The quarterback signed his contract extension recently, and the most interesting detail was related to the no-franchise-tag provision. Well, the GOAT doesn’t want to say anything about it.
“Those are some personal feelings and there’s a lot of personal conversations I’ve had that really aren’t for other people’s knowledge. I think what this is about is this season and dealing with this year. Beyond this year, whether it’s signing five more years, or signing a franchise tag, or not playing, none of those things needed to be decided this year. I’m just focused on this season and being in the right mental, emotional frame of mind to go out there and perform at the highest level.
“Like I said, I have such a great relationship with the team. I’ve had 20 years of success with Mr. Kraft, and Jonathan, and with Coach Belichick, with the whole organization. All the coaches. They know how I feel about them. We’ve just done some great things. We’re going to try to go do it again this year. It takes a lot to get from now to March, and I don’t want to overlook the big challenge that we’re facing. I don’t want my mind convoluted with thoughts that are premature, and ones that I’m worried about beyond what the current situation is – which is us trying to go achieve what we all hope we can achieve. That’s where my focus is and that’s what I’m excited about. So let’s go baby! Put me in Coach. I’m ready to play.”
