Buccaneers GM Jason Licht feels Tom Brady can play until he’s 50

Perhaps an ageless wonder indeed.

Buccaneers quarterback Tom brady will go down as one of the best to have play quarterback in the National Football League. Since his career began with the New England Patriots back in 2000, the future Hall of Famer has done everything to earn the title of the G.O.A.T.

At the current age of 43, Brady helped guide Tampa Bay to a Super Bowl victory in his very first season in pewter and red. More interesting was his stat line of 40 touchdowns to 12 interceptions throughout last season.

Perhaps this is part of the reason Bucs general manager Jason Licht feels Brady can play for several more years when asked if Brady has given him anything on how long he will potentially play for.

“I want to keep all those conversations, most of them private, but no inkling at all,” Licht said on the Rich Eisen Show. “I told him if he wants to play until he’s 50 and he’s still playing, and he feels like he can still play, he can play until he’s 50.”

We won’t know how long Brady can play for until he decides to truly challenge Father Time. Although he seems to be playing him very well right now, age can creep up rather quickly and Father Time can come out on top.

Regardless, Brady has already defied odds when it comes to age. With no signs of breaking down any time soon, Licht just may be right.
